Old Trafford to host India, Pakistan World Cup clash

Faf du Plessis and de Villiers go back a long way

On Tuesday, ICC confirmed the 2019 World Cup fixtures, with the BCCI successfully pushing its opening match back by three days to comply with the Lodha Panel recommendations.

In 2009, the entire tournament was shifted to South Africa while in 2014, the first part of the league was held in the UAE.

Meanwhile, India will start their World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 5 instead of June 2 as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has to maintain a 15-day gap between the Indian Premier League (IPL) and an worldwide fixture as per Lodha Panel recommendations.

Bob Dorough, Jazz Musician Best Known For 'Schoolhouse Rock!,' Dead At 94
Jazz musician Bob Dorough , the chief composer of the " Schoolhouse Rock " cartoon series, died Monday at the age of 94. Born in Arkansas, Dorough was able to make a living as a pianist and composer from the time he moved to NY in 1949.

India might face arch-rivals Pakistan on June 16 next year in the 50-over World Cup, to be hosted by the England & Wales Cricket Board.

India have never lost to Pakistan in World Cup matches.

BCCI's contention is that there is already a WT20 and it is more open to a 10-team Champions Trophy.

G7 ministers to discuss Russian Federation , but not sanctions
At Russia's request, Mnuchin met with Siluanov during International Monetary Fund meetings in Washington last week. However, the Russian oligarch is trying to save Rusal without surrendering control.

But it would involve huge cost in converting the football pitch to a cricket outfield as well as the instillation of drop in pitches in England for the first time.

But now one official has told the Guardian that at this stage, hosting cricket at the Olympic Stadium during the World Cup looks to be "a thing of the past".

For the first time in 27 years, all the ten teams could be pitted against each other in the round-robin league when the World Cup gets underway in England next year.

Govt defends Naidu's decision on impeachment
The Congress is likely to move the Supreme Court against the order of the Rajya Sabha chairman in the matter, party sources said. Justice Dhingra, too, supported Naidu's order on impeachment and said, "Rejection was absolutely right and based on facts".

The group stage will have all the 10 teams playing against each other. This means a total of 45 matches will be played with each team playing a total of nine matches. These, however, are not cast in stone as the final stamp on the matter will only be put in the ICC's Board meeting.
