The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 is set to get underway in England and Wales, starting 30 May. New Zealand were the first, and so far, only participant to have revealed their 15-man squad for the flagship event.
New Zealand: Kane Williamson (capt), Tom Blundell, Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Colin Munro, Jimmy Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor
India: 15 April
Ranked No.2 in the ODI rankings, India will announce their squad next Monday.
Pakistan: 18 April Winners of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, Pakistan are one of the wildcards in the World Cup. Sure, their recent form has been a bit worrying, but they’re a team that can’t really be written off at a big event.
South Africa: 18 April The team used recent series against Pakistan and Sri Lanka to trial new candidates for the World Cup. Ongoing domestic matches have also allowed candidates to showcase themselves, even as the likes of Aiden Markram have begun their county season in England.
Bangladesh: between 15 and 20 April Although no official announcement has been made, Habibul Bashar recently said that they hoped to announce a squad somewhere between 15 and 20 April, after the conclusion of a 50-over domestic tournament. A World Cup camp is scheduled from 24 April.
The teams which have not yet declared expected dates of squad announcement are England, Australia, West Indies and Sri Lanka.
