If you're going to the World Cup, go to Manchester

Faf du Plessis and de Villiers go back a long way

All 104 International Cricket Council (ICC) member countries will be granted T20I status, said ICC CEO David Richardson on Thursday. Signing off the FTP [Future Tours Programme] has been the result of unwavering commitment from all Members to get to this point and we look forward to the commencement of both the new ICC World Test Championship and ODI League in 2019 and 2020 respectively. Therefore as per a 15-day gap, we could have only played on June 5. "I thought their performances in the World Cup past year showed that", he said.

India will take on Pakistan in the ICC World Cup 2019 on June 16 at Old Trafford, a BCCI official said on Tuesday.

In all, 11 venues will be used with all 10 teams in a slimmed-down World Cup involved in an all-play-all first round before the top four advance to the semi-finals. New Zealand will feature in four of the seven day-night matches in the tournament, while Australia and Afghanistan play three each.

"We know from previous ICC events that every country will be proudly supported at each of the venues creating an exceptional atmosphere and a real celebration of the game", added Richardson.

'Fortnite' Now Largest Free-to-Play Console Game of All Time
Fortnite is now the biggest game in the world, so it would make sense for it to come to the hottest console on the market. The main theory is that it will eventually wipe out Tilted Towers , an area of the game that some players detest .

"The World Cup is one event in which the world is watching you and everyone is following you. Emirates Old Trafford will once again be on the world stage".

"We will only take a call when the situation arises, but we are ready for any eventuality". With the wonderful facilities at the Bristol County Ground and our strong cricket heritage, whether WG Grace or the critical role that Brunel's SS Great Britain made in development of the worldwide game, we have a very special story to tell and a chance to inspire visitors to spend time in the city before, during and long after the tournament.

"The Cricket World Cup is the third most watched global event and has huge interest and appeal among cricket fans".

The ICC was criticised after it banned Australia skipper Steve Smith for only one Test over his role in the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa last month in which batsman Cameron Bancroft was caught trying to alter the ball.

Cricket has not been played at the Summer Games since it featured only once in Paris 1900.In a bold decision to globalise cricket, the ICC on the final day of its five-day long meetings chose to give global status to all T20 matches played by its 104 members.
