The ICC is desperate to avoid the kind of opening ceremony that took place 20 years ago at the Lord’s when England last hosted the tournament. At that time, the then UK Prime Minister Tony Blair had given a speech that could not be heard due to a broken microphone. Rain had played spoilsport too as the tournament went off to an unimpressive start.

Team England and Team South Africa will lock horns in the tournament-opener match on May 30 at The Oval in London. The tournament will continue for 45 days with 48 matches to be played in total. India will start their world cup journey against the Proteas on June 5. The format for the 2019 edition will see 10 best teams in the world going head-to-head in a round-robin format.
