  1. Hi, myself is Arvind from India. My feedback is instead of playing only few teams in the 50 overs World Cup, let all the twenty teams participate in the world cup. So tat billions & billions of fans will watch & enjoy cricket, so tat even tat nation peoples will be happy atleast our nation hd participated in the WORLD CUP. most clash matches will be interesting in every world cup . AUSTRALIA vs ENGLAND, INDIA vs PAKISTAN, SOUTH AFRICA vs WEST INDIES, SRI LANKA vs NEW ZEALAND all rhis matches are interesting in the WORLD CUP. My humble request is please make all the twenty teams to play in the WORLD CUP.

    • Yes Arvind.

      ICC Should work on this and give chance to maximum countries to take participation in the cricket world cup which will surely help other nations to grow in this sport.
      It will be great if we have 16-20 teams in the competition and FIFA world cup’s playing format can be applied here.

    • Namaste ARVIND KUMARJI,
      This is Keshavaram from Bengaluru.What you said is GREAT. I do not deny. You say 20 teams ok. It must be divided into groups not more than that, if not the beauty of the game is spoiled. If not let it be a Round Robin League where all tems with each other. The tournament will run for atleast 45 to 60 days. What happend to tjhe domestic tournament that will get upset for that particular year. In 2023 India is hosting it is a Round Robin League. The no.of teams are to be announced. May be 14 teams there will be 13 matches each team will have to play there will be 2 semifinals & one finals. This itself will run for 45days approx. Scheduling will be tight no rest for players. After that IPL which will be for 60 days. Injuries happens to every player. But still the cricket is the winner.
