ICC Cricket World Cup 2019
 
Between May 30th and July 14th the World Cup will be taking place at Edgbaston, Bristol, Cardiff, Chester, Headingley, Lords, The Oval, Old Trafford, Trent Bridge, Southampton and Taunton.

Contested between England, Australia, Bangladesh, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and the West Indies.

Ireland have missed out and for the first time in the Modern Era of the ODI World Cup no associate nations will be playing.

Round-Robin format with the 10 Countries playing each other once before the top 4 advance to the Semi-Finals (1 vs. 4 and 2 vs. 3)

England, as the Host Nation and #1 Ranked Team in the World as things stand are clear favourites with the bookmakers ahead of India and Australia who are in turn streets ahead of South Africa/New Zealand/Pakistan.

Just managed to bag myself a few tickets for England v South Africa opening game as part of the re-opening of the ballot. Can't wait!

I was at the Champions Trophy final between these two in 2017. All was going well until Pakistan got on top - then loads of Indian fans turned on the Pakistan fans - turned quite ugly in places. Have fun :p

Probably most of the Indian and Pakistan fans were born in this country anyway.

I went to an England India ODI a couple of years ago at Edgbaston and whenever Moeen Ali came on to bowl or when he came out to bat the Indian fans booed themselves silly.

It didn't seem to worry Moeen at all though

I'm going to three group games at The Oval (South Africa v Bangladesh, New Zealand v Bangladesh and Sri Lanka v Australia) and England's warm-up match on Monday.

If anyone is wanting to watch some of today's warm-up match against Australia that is on Sky Sports Mix.

Firecracker of a game. Wish I had tickets. I expect a Pakistan humiliation though. Not a great record against India in the WC.

I refer to my original question!

Just for you Crystaljim :

Are we going to have to listen to that weasel, Michael 'break your f'kin arm' Clarke throughout WC commentary ?

Sincerely hope not :D

Aki Aki Aki 25-05-2019 04:01 PM

Now its the hyperactive airplane buffoon Michael Slater. My goodness :D .

Lyon the best Aussie bowler today. Smart bowler, he has plenty of quality.

And Mark ‘hello?’ Nicholas

art malice 25-05-2019 05:22 PM

Dreadful fielding from rubber face

art malice 25-05-2019 05:23 PM

Look at the amount of gum being chewed from the Aussies

Aki Aki Aki 25-05-2019 05:26 PM

I like the retro kits.

Purepalace 25-05-2019 05:27 PM

Turned it on and that was that.

Aki Aki Aki 25-05-2019 05:29 PM

Kind of glad we lost a meaningless warm up game. We were going to lose one day, so good we did before the important stuff begins.

Good the cheats got some abuse :D

art malice 25-05-2019 05:49 PM

Magnificent masticatory masterclass
