Bangladesh will be taking on South Africa in their first World Cup encounter on 2nd June at The Oval, whereas after losing to England in their opening match by 104 runs, this will be South Africa’s second match of the tournament.
As we progress into the World Cup, it’s Sri Lanka going up against New Zealand at Sophia Gardena, Cardiff. Sri Lanka is coming into the tournament as underdogs whereas the Kiwis are among the red hot favourites to win the World Cup.
It’s Pakistan going against West Indies in the second match of the World Cup at Nottingham. Both the teams are not among the favourites to win the World Cup but do have the capability to give an upset to any top team on their day.
At last, after all the talks and the analysis, the World Cup 2019 begins on Thursday at The Oval. Ten teams, 48 matches for the next seven weeks and only one winner in the first World Cup staged in this country in 20 years.
