Match Format

The 2019 ICC World Cup cricket is following a round-robin format where all the ten teams play with each other once, in a single group; hence every team is going to play a total of nine matches against each other with 45-matches being played overall. The four top teams will move to the knockout stage in the first week of July. It was in 1992 Cricket World Cup where a similar format was used, although that tournament included nine teams instead of ten. The previous two editions were featuring 14 teams, but in 2019, only 10 teams are participating.
