Countdown to the 2019 Cricket World Cup
There are just two days to go before the 12th ICC Cricket World Cup, hosted by England and Wales, kicks off in London.
The tournament gets underway on Thursday morning with the Proteas going up against England at The Oval.
It's a new look format for this year's tournament with all ten teams playing each other once, in a single group.
The top four teams from the group will progress to the knockout stage.
EWN sports reporter Carl Lewis explains:
The last time this format was used was back in 1992.Carl Lewis, Sport reporter - EWN
The more matches India play, the more money for the ICC. So this format guarantees them nine matches. That's a lot of money!Carl Lewis, Sport reporter - EWN
There's a sense that world cricket is closing off this tournament and not expanding the game.Carl Lewis, Sport reporter - EWN
Despite an increase in the number of matches being played, there has been some criticism that only 10 countries are taking part and that no associate teams qualified for the event.
But what of South Africa's chances?
For the first time in a while, we're going into this world cup really as the 'underdogs'... but I think us going up against the favourites in the first match is a good thing.Carl Lewis, Sport reporter - EWN
