The 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup was the 12th Cricket World Cup, an international cricket tournament contested by men's national teams from the International Cricket Council (ICC). It was hosted by England and Wales from 30 May to 14 July 2019, making it the fifth time England and Wales have hosted the World Cup. The final was played at Lord's on 14 July 2019, where England beat New Zealand on boundary count after both the match and the subsequent Super Over finished as ties.

The format for the tournament was a single group of 10 teams, with each team playing the other nine once, and the top four at the end of the group phase progressing to the semi-finals. The first semi-final was played between the teams finishing first and fourth in the league, while the second semi-final was played between the teams finishing second and third. Given the increase of ICC Full Members since the last World Cup, from 10 to 12, this is the first World Cup to be contested without all of the Full Member nations being present, and the first to feature no ICC Associate Member nations.

Hosting

The hosting rights were awarded in April 2006, after England and Wales withdrew their bid to host the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, which was played in Australia and New Zealand. It is the fifth time that the Cricket World Cup is being played in England and Wales, following the 1975, 1979, 1983 and 1999 World Cups.

Qualification

The 2019 World Cup will feature 10 teams, a decrease from previous World Cups in 2011 and 2015 which featured 14 teams. The hosts, England, and the top seven other teams in the ICC One Day International rankings as of 30 September 2017 earned automatic qualification, with the remaining two spots being decided by the 2018 Cricket World Cup Qualifier.

At the time of the announcement of the qualification structure, ICC Associate and Affiliate members, who were guaranteed four spots in the previous two World Cup tournaments, could be represented by at most two teams, and possibly none at all if they were beaten by the lowest ranked Full Members in the Qualifier. It also meant that at least two of the 10 Test playing nations at the time of the announcement would have to play in the qualifying tournament, and could possibly miss the World Cup finals entirely.

Following recent success, Ireland and Afghanistan were promoted into the ICC ODI Championship and have also since been promoted to full members of the ICC, becoming the newest Test cricketing nations. However, they still needed to qualify for the World Cup via the current process.

Afghanistan won the qualifying tournament defeating the West Indies in the final. Both teams qualified for the World Cup, while Zimbabwe despite hosting the qualifying tournament failed to reach the final and will miss the World Cup for the first time since 1983. Recently appointed full member Ireland will also miss the World Cup for the first time since 2007 and for the first time ever no Associate nation will be participating in the World Cup.

Tournament summary

Group stage

Week 1

The 2019 tournament began on 30 May at The Oval in London, between the host nation (England) and South Africa. England batted first and, after losing their first wicket to the second ball of the tournament, went on to score 311/8 from their 50 overs with Ben Stokes top-scoring with 89 runs from 79 balls. In reply, South Africa was bowled out for 207, with a collapse of 8 wickets for 63 to give England the victory by 104 runs. The three following matches were one-sided; in the first West Indies bowled-out Pakistan for just 105 before chasing the target down in only 13.4 overs. The first double-header of the group stage saw comfortable wins for New Zealand and Australia, as they won by 10 and 7 wickets respectively over Sri Lanka and Afghanistan.

In the fifth match of the group stage at The Oval, Bangladesh made their highest score in a ODI ,with 330/6 from their fifty overs. Mushfiqur Rahim top-scored for Bangladesh with 78, as he and Shakib Al Hasan had a 142 run partnership for the third wicket. In reply, the South Africans couldn't get a partnership going with constant wickets falling through their innings. Mustafizur Rahman took three wickets for Bangladesh as South Africa fell short by 21 runs. The following day saw Pakistan cause an upset over one of the tournament favourites (England) at Trent Bridge with a 14 run victory. This was despite Joe Root (107) and Jos Butler (103) both scoring centuries in the chase, as they became the first players to score a century at the 2019 World Cup.

Sri Lanka got off to a good start in their game against Afghanistan in Cardiff, with them reaching 144/1 in the 21st over. This was before three wickets in five balls from Mohammad Nabi started an collapse which saw Sri Lanka being bowled-out for 201. Kusal Perera top-scored for Sri Lanka with 78, while Nabi took four wickets. In reply, rain forced Afghanistan innings to be reduced to 41 overs and one stage they were 57/5. A partnership of 64 from Najibullah Zadran (who top scored with 43) and Gulbadin Naib steadied the innings for Afghanistan but it wasn't enough, with Nuwan Pradeep grabbing two quick wickets as Afghanistan fell 34 runs short of their revised target.

Week 2

Week 2 started with a double-header being played at the Rose Bowl and The Oval. At the Rose Bowl, India started their campaign with a six wicket win over South Africa. Yuzvendra Chahal took four wickets as he helped restrict the target to 228. In reply, Rohit Sharma scored 122* to chase the target with 15 balls to spare. The other match on the Wednesday saw Bangladesh give New Zealand a scare, as New Zealand went from 160/2 to 191/5 before getting home with three overs to spare. Ross Taylor top scored for New Zealand in the run-chase with 82, while Matt Henry was the pick of the bowlers in the match with four wickets.

In Nottingham, Australia had an early batting collapse to fall to 38/4 early in their innings. Half-centuries from Steve Smith and Nathan Coulter-Nile steadied the ship for the Australians as they were bowled for 288. In response, Chris Gayle had two overturned decisions go his way before getting out to what some thought should have been a free-hit, after Mitchell Starc over-stepped the previous ball. Despite a 68 from Shai Hope, Australia won by 15 runs off the back of Starc's five-wicket haul. After Pakistan and Sri Lanka was abandoned due to rain, the Saturday matches were played in Cardiff and Taunton. At Cardiff, Jason Roy scored the highest score of the tournament (at the time), with 153 as he was man of the match in the 106 run victory over Bangladesh. In Taunton, a five-wicket haul from Kiwi bowler James Neesham led New Zealand to their third victory on the trot, with a seven wicket victory over Afghanistan.

The final completed match of the week saw India defeat Australia by 36 runs at The Oval. Batting first, India targeted Marcus Stoinis and Adam Zampa's bowling with a combined total of 113 runs coming from their thirteen overs, as India scored 352/5. Shikhar Dhawan top scored for India with 117, while Stoinis was the only bowler to take more than one wicket. In the run chase, the Australians didn't get a rapid start from their openers with Bhuvneshwar Kumar's control getting him three wickets. Despite half-centuries from David Warner, Steve Smith and Alex Carey, the Australians were bowled out for 316. The final two games of the week were washed out, with only 7.2 overs happening on Monday, while Tuesday saw the game completely abandoned.

Week 3

The third week of the World Cup saw Australia opening with a 146 run stand between David Warner and Aaron Finch with Warner going on to get a century. Pakistan fought back into the innings with Mohammad Amir taking five wickets which restricted Australia to 307. In response, Pakistan couldn't get a partnership going with consist wickets coming from the Australians. But after Pat Cummins finished his ten overs with 33/3, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Wahab Riaz tried to get Pakistan the victory with a quick fire 64-run partnership but it wasn't enough with Starc taking two wickets in the 41 run victory. After a fourth wash-out of the World Cup in Nottingham, Joe Root scored his second century of the tournament while taking two wickets in England's eight wicket victory over the West Indies at Southampton. But the English victory was soured with Jason Roy missing the next two games with a hamstring injury after going off after the eighth over.

South Africa recorded their first win of the tournament at Cardiff against Afghanistan, with Imran Tahir taking four wickets as Afghanistan was bowled for 125. In reply, the South Africans chased down with a nine wicket victory. The other match on Saturday at London, saw Aaron Finch and Mitchell Starc guide the Australians to a 85 run victory which sent them to the top of the table with eight points from five games. The following day at Old Trafford saw the two rivals in India and Pakistan taking on each other. In the match which featured close to three million tweets, India scored 336/5 from their fifty overs which included a MOTM performance of 140 runs from Rohit Sharma. In response, Pakistan got off to a good start to be 117/1 at one stage before Kuldeep Yadav delievered two wickets in three balls to turn the tide for India and giving them a 89 run victory over Pakistan via the Duckworth–Lewis–Stern method.

Monday saw Bangladesh defeat the West Indies at the Country Ground in Taunton by seven wickets. This was due to a century from Banglaedshi all-rounder, Shakib Al Hasan who scored 124 from 99 balls as they chased down the target of 321 which was set by the West Indies. In the West Indies innings, Shai Hope top-scored for the team with 96 runs from 121 balls as he and Evin Lewis (70) got the West Indies to 321/8 from their fifty overs. At Manchester, Eoin Morgan broke the record for the most-sixes in an innings as he top-scored for England with 148 as he lead England to a 150-run victory over Afghanistan. This match saw the most expense spell in World Cup history with Rashid Khan conceeding 110 runs for no wickets.

Week 4

The fourth week of the World Cup began in Edgbaston with South Africa taking on New Zealand. With the match reduced to 49 overs due to a wet field, South Africa posted a total of 241/6 with some late hitting from Rassie van der Dussen who scored 67* getting South Africa to that score while Lockie Ferguson was the best of the bowlers with three wickets. In response New Zealand was at one stage 137/5 before a partnership from Kane Williamson (who went on to score a century) and Colin de Grandhomme guided New Zealand to their fourth victory of the tournament. The following day in Nottingham, saw David Warner scored 166 and with Usman Khawaja scoring 89 got Australia to 381/5 from the fifty overs which Bangladesh couldn't get despite Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim getting them within 48 runs of the target. Friday saw Lasith Malinga dismantle the English top-order as he took four wickets to get Sri Lanka their second win of the tournament by 20 runs after Sri Lanka set England a target of 233 with Angelo Mathews top-scoring for the Sri Lankans with 85* while Mark Wood was the best of the bowlers with 40/3.

The Saturday games saw the first elimination of the tournament with Afghanistan being eliminated by India at Southampton with Mohammed Shami getting a hat-trick to lead India to a 11 run victory. This was despite Afghanistan limiting India to only 224 from their fifty overs. The other match on the Saturday saw a close match between New Zealand and the West Indies at Manchester. After New Zealand scored 291/8 with Kane Williamson scoring 148, they had the West Indies reeling at 164/7 after 27 overs. The momentum though was swung to the West Indies, with Carlos Brathwaite hitting 101 runs which included five sixes and nine fours as he lead them to within five runs of the target. But the attempt from Brathwaite to finish off the game ended in a Trent Boult catch which saw New Zealand winning by only five runs.

Knockout stage

Main article: 2019 Cricket World Cup knockout stage

The knockout stage started with semi-finals at Old Trafford and Edgbaston, the winners of each progressing to the final at Lord's. All three knockout games have a reserve day.

On 25 June 2019, Australia became the first team to qualify for the semi-finals, after beating England at Lord's. India became the second team to qualify for the semi-finals, after they defeated Bangladesh at Edgbaston on 2 July 2019. The following day saw tournament hosts England become the third team to qualify for the semi-finals, after they beat New Zealand at the Riverside Ground. New Zealand were the fourth and final team to qualify for the semi-finals, after Pakistan were unable to increase their net run rate sufficiently enough in their match against Bangladesh at Lord's.

The first semi-final was played between India and New Zealand at Old Trafford, while the second semi-final was played between Australia and England at Edgbaston. If a reserve day comes into play for either semi-final, the match will be resumed from the previous day and not restarted. If the match ends in a tie, a Super Over will be used to determine which team progresses to the final. In the event of no play on the scheduled day and reserve day, the team that finished higher in the group stage will progress to the final.
