  1. I would like to propose best format for 2019 world cup. In this format 15 Teams can participate with only 42 Matches.

    In other proposal 16 Teams with 49 matches. This is best suited as this format will enhance Chances of best teams playing with each other. All top 8 teams will get chance to crack with each other
