The schedule for the ICC World Cup 2019 has been released.

A part of the 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL) is likely to take place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to the general elections in 2019, a Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) official said.

Meanwhile, India will start their World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 5 instead of June 2 as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has to maintain a 15-day gap between the Indian Premier League (IPL) and an global fixture as per Lodha Panel recommendations.

The tournament will be spread over 10 cities and 11 venues - allowing for Lord's and the Oval in London - and the explosive India-Pakistan match will be at Old Trafford on June 16. It will be a repeat of the 1999 World Cup Super Six match, in which India had emerged winners by 47 runs with Venkatesh Prasad claiming the Man of the Match award after taking five wickets. Pakistan defeated India in this encounter to lift the Champions Trophy for the first time.

The confusion about when and which could be India's first Day-Night Test match, however, remains.

The format for the group stage is to have all ten teams play each other in a single group.

It is believed that the CEC chose to go back to the old format to ensure recovery time for the teams. Of the ten participating teams, four will march into the knockouts during the month and a half-long tournament.

Some of the other major decisions to be taken by the ICC board include the extension of Shashank Manohar as its chairman for another term and the replacing the Champions Trophy 2021 with a World T20 tournament featuring 16 teams.

"The matter is not closed, please understand", Chaudhary told reporters on the sidelines of the quarterly ICC meetings in Kolkata.
