The wait for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is almost over. While hosts England take on South Africa in the tournament’s opener on May 30, all the 10 teams are busy winding up their preparations for the mega tournament with the warm-up matches already underway.
Defending champions Australia will face Afghanistan in their opening match on June 1, whereas India will begin their campaign against South Africa on June 5.
The prestigious tournament, which is its 12th edition, will give every player an opportunity to create a career highlight for themselves.
This World Cup edition will feature many players that have vast experience given a long international career and may very well be the last time they play in the tournament. Despite their advanced age, these players bring immense value for their teams, as they guide the young turks in the correct direction and also provide valuable inputs to the captains during crunch situations.
