Indian Cricket Team schedule and fixtures for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: The Sportsrush present before you India’s full schedule.
The Indian cricket team has landed in England for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Slated to begin on May 30, the showpiece event will be played over a 46-day period under a whole new intriguing format.
There is no hiding to the fact that alongside hosts in England, India are one of the favourites to lift the trophy. Given how well the team has performed in the last couple of years across countries and conditions, it would be naive to not expect them to dominate in the tournament.
Speaking during the press conference before leaving for England, India Head Coach Ravi Shastri had disclosed the role of former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni for the tournament. Accompanying Shastri during the press conference was captain Virat Kohli, who was vocal about Kuldeep Yadav‘s poor form in the Indian Premier League.
Having won the World Cup in 1983 and 2011, the Indian team would be hoping to lift the trophy for the third time now.
As far as India’s schedule for the World Cup is concerned, they will play their first match against South Africa at Southampton on June 5. They will play their last league match against Sri Lanka on July 7 at Leeds.
