Pakistan Cricket Team Schedule for ICC World Cup 2019


Pakistan Cricket Team comprising of the young-blood proved their mettle at the Champions Trophy 2017 by bringing home this ICC mega-event trophy. Now the team under the leadership of Sarfraz Ahmed is looking ahead for ICC World CUP 2019, which is scheduled to be held in England and Wales next summer.  Days back the schedule is out and cricket-fans would be glad to know, yes we have an India-Pakistan encounter on 16th June 2019 at Old Trafford.


It should be kept noted here that as of now Pakistan is touring England as an initiative of part of the preparation for the next year world cup. The real-time issue which hampers Asian teams quality in Europe is less-familiarity with the conditions. The current tour of Pakistan Cricket team aims to get the young-brigade know more about the conditions.  Not to forget, rising stars played a pivotal role in Pakistan’s triumph at Champions Trophy 2017, with special thanks to the PSL for getting this talent into the limelight.

Talking about the ICC World Cup 2019 after schedule announcement, Pakistan cricket team captain Sarfraz Ahmed told: Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed said: “The World Cup is important for all teams. Our first match is against the West Indies, the first match is always important, so all our preparations are geared towards that match and the tournament. We are trying to iron out our deficiencies during this period.



“The World Cup is one event in which the world is watching you and everyone is following you. The importance of players is realised during this crunch time. It makes heroes and superstars of players. Pakistan always goes into tournaments as underdogs but don’t think it will be the same this time because people remember that we have won the Champions Trophy,” he added.
