The biggest cricketing event in the world, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is scheduled to start from 30th May with grand final slated to be held on 14th June, 2019. The cricket fans are super excited and the event promises to live up to the expectations. The mega event will be played on the format of 1992 World Cup and Pakistanis have fond memories of the victory under Imran Khan’s dynamic leadership.
The tournament spans over a period of more than one and a half month with 48 matches to be played. Pakistan’s campaign starts on 31st May against the West Indies, while the Green Shirts will play their last fixture against Bangladesh on 5th July. Like all other teams, Pakistan will play 9 matches, against all other teams once, in the league stage, before the action moves on to the semi-finals and the final.
Australia are the defending champions having won the 2015 edition of the World Cup by beating their trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand in the final. The World Cup 2019 promises to be a more balanced tournament than it has ever been with all 10 teams aiming for glory. Gone are the days when teams like Bangladesh and Afghanistan were written off at the start of the tournaments. The teams have evolved and they pose as much a threat to top teams as Pakistan, Sri Lanka and New Zealand.
The World Cup 2019 fixtures will be more evenly matched as teams have looked more confident than ever. Whether it’s the West Indies or Sri Lanka, Afghanistan or Bangladesh, Pakistan or New Zealand or any other team, there’s hope in the camps and back home in the respective countries. Pakistan will be entering into the tournament as underdogs, however, the Champions Trophy triumph despite a poor start has rung the alarm bells for all teams and they will be more wary of a resurgent Pakistan this time around.
