The ICC World Cup 2019 begins from the 30th of May, and the excitement is rising pretty high with exactly hundred days left for the tournament. This year’s edition of the quadrennial event will be hosted jointly by England and Wales, across ten different venues.
This is the first time that the World Cup will be contested without all of the Test playing nations being present. This comes as a result of the International Cricket Council (ICC) tightening the competition down from 14 to 10 teams. Ten nations will converge in England and Wales, all dreaming of lifting the World Cup Trophy, both players and fans alike. The usual nations are once again being tipped to battle it out at the pointy end including defending champions Australia, who also happen to be the most successful team in World Cups, hosts and top ranked England while second placed India and dark horses New Zealand are also one to watch out for.
While it is no doubt that players are integral to the tournament, but there is no lie in the fact that fans carry the team. Fans from all over the world will be visiting to witness this spectacle, and exactly the reason why the World Cup is such an important event. So do you happen to be one of those fans who are looking to support their nation’s cricket team at the mega-event and are looking to get tickets? Well, you are the right place, since we will be discussing everything there is to know about the tickets for ICC World Cup 2019.
