The Royal London One-Day Cup tournament is a limited overs cricket competition that forms part of the domestic cricket season in England and Wales and is organized by England and Wales Cricket Board. The 2019 edition of the tournament will begin on 17 April 2019 and the final is scheduled to take place on 25 May 2019.
The tournament is contested amongst all the eighteen first-class counties. The counties are divided into two groups- the North Group and the South Group. The group stage of the tournament is followed by knockouts. The current defending Champions of the Royal London One day Cup is Hampshire.
|North Group||South Group|
Based on a rough North-South geographical division, the 18 counties are divided into the two groups - the North and the South Group. Each team plays every other team in the group once during the group stage, thus playing a total of eight matches. Four of the right matches of each team are home games, while the other four are away. The group stage winners progress straight to the semi-finals and the second and third-placed teams in each group will play a play-off against a team from the other group in the quarterfinals, and the winner progresses to one of the semi-final matches.
