Pakistan, India to meet on June 16

De Villiers and Kohli have always fed off each other's confidence

In keeping with the Lodha Committee's recommendations, which says that a mandatory 15-day gap is required between the Indian Premier League (IPL) final and any worldwide match, India will open their 2019 ICC World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 5 instead of June 2.

The 10-team World Cup will revert to the 1992 model of all teams playing each other in a round-robin league with the top four making it to the knockout semifinals.

De Villiers was captain when the Proteas agonisingly lost the 2015 World Cup semi-final to co-hosts New Zealand in the final over in Auckland and like many South African teams before fell short just short of claiming the trophy. The tournament comprises 48 matches to be played across 46 days. The World Cup is from May 30 till July 15.

The 12th edition of the IPL will be held from March 29 to May 19 next year but BCCI are aware that there remains a possibility of elections happening around that time of the year. India will face Pakistan on June 16 at Old Trafford.

The 10-team cricket extravaganza will be played between 30 May and 14 July next year, and fixture details of all 48 matches will be made officially tomorrow.

The number of home tests will be increased from 15 to 19. Having seen how multi-use stadiums brought in huge crowds at the last World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, the Olympic Stadium was an obvious choice.

The confusion about when and which could be India's first Day-Night Test match, however, remains.

BCCI is believed to have opposed ICC's decision to convert the 2021 Champions Trophy to World T20 as it goes against the members playing agreement.
