Nottingham's Trent Bridge will host a number of global cricket matches this summer, including five World Cup fixtures. "2015 was the pinnacle after a lot of hard work and I'm excited to be involved in a different capacity this time around - hopefully we'll have plenty of drama!"

The council also said that there will be prizes for each league match won as well. The 46-day tournament will end on July 14 with the final at the historic Lords.

England and Wales have previously staged the World Cup in 1975, 1979, 1983 and 1999.

"Obviously this will be Chris Gayle's last World Cup and I'm quite sure he will want to go out with a bang so we expect him at the top of the order to fire us into a strong position especially in the first power-play, and then the other guys can take it on". It is the best format as teams get more chances and I reckon all teams will have an equal chance to qualify for the semi-finals.

At his interaction, Rahul Gandhi said the BJP government had marketing and television but truth was on the side of the Congress. " BJP does not agree with this statement, we condemn it", said party spokesman GVL Narasimha Rao in a statement to media.


Afghanistan will play their second World Cup after they debuted in the competition four years ago in Australia and New Zealand. "He's in prime form - the form of his life - and we're hoping he can continue that rich form into the World Cup", Sir Curly said of the 25-year-old who has almost 400 runs from four innings at an average of 99 with two hundreds.

If Gayle shows up in similar form during the World Cup, it could spell ominous signs for teams around the world.

Viewers will be treated to state-of-the-art coverage which will include a minimum of 32 cameras at every game, including eight ultra-motion Hawk-Eye cameras, front and reverse view stump cameras and Spidercam.

The coverage will also be complemented with a variety of analytical and visual enhancements including the use of Player Tracking. Services partner Sunset+Vine and equipment services partner NEP Broadcast Solutions will support ICC TV to make it an enthralling experience for the fans across the world. "I could never dream of playing so many World Cups but it has happened".
