This is much better since we will get a lot of cricket. All the teams will compete against everyone is the roster. The minow teams will get to play against all the major teams. It won’t be like the previous times when we couldn’t see teams in one group play against the teams in the other.

It was a wasted opportunity to show more cricketing action. This way, each day is filled with cricket. It will be an exciting tournament indeed.

Matches to look forward to

The first match is the match you should look forward to. The 2019 CWC finale is at an absolute halt. We didn’t know what would happen as the match went to a super over. Unfortunately, New Zealand lost the match and saw England become the world champions. Will the defending champions be able to start the tournament with a win?

The next match we will have to watch is the India vs. Pakistan match. Who can deny that this match-up is something even the broadcasters do not want to let go of? Now pair that up with Pakistan’s notorious record of losing against Indians. Luckily, they have broken the jinx. But will they be able to carry that momentum now?

Conversely, India has not been very friendly to the Pakistan cricket team so far. They will be looking forward to beating them if they do not want to face the wrath of Indian fans. Are TVs getting broken on either side of the border? Let’s see


Overall, this is going to be an exciting tournament. We will see if ICC can make it a global thing by rectifying the format of the game. The tournament will start on 5 October, and all eyes are on ICC to make it as memorable as possible.

India can take the trophy back and repeat what the captain, relaxed and calm: MS Dhoni did for them in 2011.

Will they be able to do it? Or will England retain the championship? Let’s find out.
