England are hosting the 2019 World Cup and go into the tournament as the number one ranked team in the world according to the ODI rankings, so there is a bit of expectation on Eoin Morgan and his team.
With the ICC World Cup just around the corner, it can be difficult to stay on top of all the action, but using the information provided here you won’t have to miss a minute when watching live on TV or streaming the matches to a mobile device.
Cricket World Cup 2019 TV Preview – England
Given the game of Cricket was born in England, the fact they haven’t won an ICC World Cup would be burning for just about the entire nation, with also considering that they have struggled in recent Soccer World Cups, adding more pain to the English faithful. They have played in three Cricket World Cup finals in past tournaments, but you have to go back to 1992 to see them last in a championship match, which they lost against a star-filled Pakistan outfit. This time around sees just about everything in their favour though. They are the favourites to win, they are hosting the ICC Cricket World Cup, and they’re the form team in world Cricket.
They are currently ranked the number one team in the world and it’s not hard to see why that is the case. They have, for the most part, dominated teams in 2019, starting with a tied ODI Series with the West Indies before comfortably beating the Windies in a T20 Series. They then faced Pakistan in an ODI Series and were dominant, winning 4-0 and showing everyone why they are indeed the best team in the world when it comes to the 50 over version of the game. Eoin Morgan has been a great captain for the Poms and his excellent form with the bat during his brief stay in the Big Bash Cricket League translated to the English national side, and he’s certainly a barometer for how the team will go in this tournament.

England Match Previews
England are hosting the World Cup and will kick off the 2019 edition with potentially the match of the tournament against the South Africa Cricket side, who are ranked third in the world. South Africa love the big stages, especially a couple of their players, and they are the ones that England need to contain. Kagiso Rabada is one of the best young quicks in world Cricket but can fire up quite easily and it will only take a few overs of brilliance from the English batsmen to unsettle him. Dale Steyn is one of the all-time great fast bowlers and despite injury crippling him at various times in recent years, his line and length, combined with pace, is outstanding.
On June 25, England will host Australia and this will be a must watch game for a number of reasons. They are old enemies that got back near 150 years, both sides are arguably the two in form sides of world cricket leading into the World Cup and it will be very interesting to see what England’s fan base, the ‘Barmy Army’, will do to Australian players Steve Smith and David Warner, who are back playing for Australia after ‘Sandpaper Gate’. Both seemed to smile and laugh off barbs during the Indian Premier League, but the Barmy Army is a whole different beast.
Five days later, England plays their India rivals and this is such a huge game. They are considered the two teams most likely to fight out the World Cup and the winner will gain such a huge advantage by getting an easier path through the Finals if the draw goes to plan. These two sides played in a Series last year, seeing England win 2-1 but there was very little between the teams. The man England needs to stop is Virat Kohli. When he’s firing and in form, there is no better batsman in World Cricket, and more often than not, India when Kohli scores big. He is a fiery customer both with the bat and in the field, so a player like Ben Stokes could be the perfect combatant to go toe-to-toe with ‘King Kohli’ in what should be a great match.
