The 2019 World Cup will be played in the UK from the last week of May and if you are looking to watch the competition live on television or if you are looking to understand how you can watch the cricket World Cup live streaming online, here’s how you can do it.
In one of the most compact cricket World Cups to be played in recent times, the 2019 World Cup will see 10 teams participate in the tournament with each side facing off against the other nine in the tournament. That means there will be a total of nine games at the very least for all the sides and 45 matches in all during the league stage of the tournament.
At the end of this aforementioned league stage of the cricket World Cup, the top four teams will feature in the semi-finals. The top-ranked side takes on the fourth-placed team in the points table in one semi-final while the second and third-placed teams face off in the other semi-final. The winners of each of these matches make it to the final, a title decider that will be played at the famous Lord’s ground.
Australia will look to add to the five titles they have already won in World Cup but with their recent cricketing woes, it would be interesting to watch how they go in the competition. The favourites, going into the World Cup this time, will be England, the hosts and one of the teams that has rarely lost matches in recent times. In fact at the end of 2018, England’s win-loss ratio in ODI cricket since the previous World Cup is 51-21, the best for any team.
And if India can sort some of their issues out, they should also be a team to watch out, with punters gunning for an England-India final at Lord’s. However, Pakistan can never be taken lightly while New Zealand have always played out of their skins when it comes to events like these. Windies, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are the other teams that will be in action while South Africa will hope to break their hoodoo and win their first ever World Cup title.
