The ICC Cricket World Cup is a quadrennial One Day International (ODI) cricket competition hosted by the International Cricket Council and contested by men's national teams. The 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup was the 12th edition of its kind. It was held from 30th May to 14th July 2019 in ten venues around England and one venue in Wales, with England hosting the World Cup for the fifth time and Wales hosting the World Cup for the third time.

The event included 10 teams, down from 14 in the previous edition, and the tournament structure was changed to a single round-robin group with the best four teams qualifying for the knockout stage. After six weeks of round-robin matches, India, Australia, England, and New Zealand finished first, second, third, and fourth, respectively, with Pakistan losing out on net run rate.

England and New Zealand qualified for the final by winning their respective semi-finals in the knockout stage held at Lord's in London. The final was a tie after both teams scored 241 runs, followed by the first Super Over in an ODI. England won the trophy - their first - on the boundary countback rule when the Super Over was also tied.

Stages of the League

  1. If both teams finish with the same number of points, the team with the most victories in the League Stage will be positioned higher. In the event that two teams have the same number of points and victories in the League Stage, the teams will be ranked according to their net run rate in the League Stage matches.
  2. If there are still teams that are tied, they will be ranked based on the outcome(s) of their head-to-head match(es).
  3. If the foregoing does not resolve the League Stage ordering and there are still equal teams, they will be ordered according to their League Stage.
  4. If no results are obtained in all of the League Stage matches, the teams will be seeded according to their League Stage seedings, with the top four seeded teams advancing to the Semi-Finals.

Finalists

  • If there is a tie in the Semi-Final, the teams will compete in a Super Over to determine who will advance to the Final.
  • If weather conditions prohibit the Super Over from being completed following a draw or if the match is abandoned or there is no result at the end of the reserve day, the club that finished higher in the League Stage will advance to the Final.

Finals

If the final is deadlocked, the teams will compete in a Super Over to see who will win. The teams will be declared joint winners if weather conditions prohibit the Super Over from being completed following a tie or if the match is abandoned if there is no result by the end of the reserve day.
