The ICC World Cup 2019 slated to be held in the United Kingdom from 30 May to 14 July 2019.
India will open their 2019 World Cup campaign against South Africa on 5 June and square off against arch-rivals Pakistan on 16 June.
Interestingly, ICC, in their various marquee events, have started with an Indo-Pak fixture in the past – which is almost always a full house. It happened in the 2015 World Cup in Australia (at Adelaide) and the 2017 Champions Trophy in UK (in Birmingham). The 2019 World Cup will be an exception in this regard.
