India To Face South Africa In ICC World Cup 2019 Opener

Sethi calls on India to play Pakistan in UAE Political intervention in India-Pakistan cricket ties a tragedy: Najam Sethi

India play Pakistan on June 16 in World Cup 2019. The 12th season of the IPL is expected to start on March 29 and the final will be played on May 19. Therefore as per a 15-day gap, we could have only played on June 5. "Earlier, we were scheduled to start June 2 but we couldn't have played on that day", a senior BCCI official present here told this agency on conditions of anonymity.

Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi recently took to Twitter and urged the United Nations to intervene in "India Occupied Kashmir" and stop the killing of "innocents".

It was also learnt that Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland has checked for the meeting in the wake of the ball tampering row which resulted in Australia captain Steve Smith, deputy David Warner and opener Cameron Bancroft being banned for their role in the unsavoury incident which took place in the Cape Town Test against South Africa. In fact, the official went on to add that Ali's freakish antics at the Attari-Wagah border during the traditional flag-lowering ceremony following former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi's comments on Kashmir further justified the Indian board's stance of cutting all ties with its Pakistan counterpart because they were the ones who were mixing sports with politics."In an ideal world, we would host Pakistan in India and visit Pakistan to play there".

After India opened their 2015 World Cup and 2017 Champions Trophy campaigns against India, it is the first time India will begin against another country. "Since the format will be a round robin affair (all teams playing each other like 1992)", the official added.

Along with that, it was also announced that the Indian team that is now at the top of the ICC Test rankings will play 19 Test matches at home during the 2019-2023 period as per the Future Tours Program (FTP).

"As we had decided, India will play a maximum 309 days of worldwide cricket in this cycle across all formats, a reduction of 92 days from the earlier cycle", informed the official. "The BCCI direct income will be affected as it will have to forgo or reschedule global matches to be played at home during this period". "All these Tests will be part of the World Test Championship", he added.

Among other things, ICC will deliberate on the process for the election of its chairman.

"All matches in ICC World Test Championship are day matches played with red ball".

Former BCCI president Manohar is ICC's first independent chairman and, in all likelihood, will get an extension during the Annual Conference scheduled in Dublin in June.

PCB chairman Najam Sethi and chief executive Subhan Ahmed have been granted visas to travel to India after early confusion.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) will discuss at its board meeting here about how to address the issue of accommodating more associate teams in future World Cups, an official said on Sunday.
