The ICC World Cup 2019 is all set to begin from May 30. The first match of the most coveted cricket tournament will be played between the hosts, England and South Africa. The match will be played at the Kennington Oval, London.
With all 10 teams at the World Cup part of the round-robin group stage, each team will play a total of nine matches before the knockout stages, starting July 9. The top four teams will qualify for the knockout stages.
England are clearly the favourites to lift the trophy this year as they will also get much needed support by the home conditions, while South Africa have never failed to impress the viewers at the group stages of the Cricket world cup.
England will head into the competition with a high morale, featuring a balanced team in terms of batting and bowling. Players like Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, Jofra Archer and others are in a good form and are expected to continue their form throughout the tournament.
On the other side, the bowling attack of South Africa is considered to be one of the best as compared to any other team featuring in CWC 2019. They will be much dependent upon their pace bowlers and could dismantle any batting lineup easily on their day.
