    2019 Cricket World Cup

    July 01, 2015

    The 2019 Cricket World Cup in England will remain as a 10-team tournament.


    Plans to cut the competition from 14 teams have been in place since 2011, but debate over the format of the next edition was opened during this year’s event in Australia and New Zealand.


    The good performance of non-Test sides like Ireland led International Cricket Council chief executive Dave Richardson to say the 2019 event may be reviewed.


    But the format was not discussed at the ICC annual conference in Barbados.


    The 2019 tournament in England will be made up of the hosts, the other top seven teams in the one-day international world rankings and two qualifiers from an event in Bangladesh.


    In theory, that will make it harder for Ireland, who have featured in the last three World Cups and beat Test sides West Indies and Zimbabwe this year, to qualify.
