Cricket is a very popular game, especially in the Indian subcontinent and other Commonwealth countries. As described in my article on Cricket formats, the game is played in three formats: Trial, ODI, and T20I. The cricket championship tournament – the world cup is played in the ODI format – also known as One Day International – every four years.
The 12th edition of the cricket world cup is right around the corner, starting May 30, 2019, and this article is about what the audience and fans should expect from the tournament.
The 2019 Cricket World Cup is a cricket carnival, which will last 46 days, from May 30, 2019 to July 14, 2019, and will consist of 48 matches. The tournament will be played in England and Wales. Being the summer season, the climate will be ideal to tour the country and enjoy its natural beauty.
The cricket world cup is an epitome of a cricket player’s career and every cricketer dreams of representing the country in this championship tournament. While he has a chance, Cricketer wants to give it his all to win the tournament.
The tournament involving the top 10 countries in the world, guarantees the highest quality cricket and the best rivalry in world cricket. India-Pakistan, England-Australia are among the archrivals who will seek to defeat themselves at any cost.
The tournament will bring in some of the best hitting hits from the best hitters in the world. The masterclass chase, best kill over effort, delicate touches, and sheer technicality would be on display match after match.
Since world cup pitches are not expected to help many bowling gear, raw rhythm will be the most important factor teams should rely on. The best bowlers in the world – Jasprit Bumrah, Kagiso Rabada, Mitchell Starc to name a few – will generate a raw beat to fool the batsmen on the other end.
Any game played at the highest level involves much more than the match on the ground. And cricket is no different. During the tournament, you will be able to see some of the best tactics and awareness of the game to pull the game in favor of the teams at the crucial moments.
The tent event in the past has witnessed many examples of sportsmanship. The 2019 cricket world cup will be no different as it will feature some of the best cases of sportsmanship among the teams.
