WC-19: Pak, India to face each other on June 16

I've committed to all three formats last season and I loved every second of it- de Villiers

India will square off against Pakistan at Old Trafford on June 16 in one of the much-awaited clashes of the ICC World Cup 2019.

As a result, India's opening match against South Africa would be played on June 5, 15 days after the 2019 IPL final. The second semifinal, it is learnt, will be held in Edgbaston on July 11, and the Lord's will host the final on July 14. The ICC Cricket World Cup is scheduled to happen in UK. The tournament comprises 48 matches to be played across 46 days.

In the World Cup 2019, the Indian team will now start their campaign against South Africa on June 5. Next year, the IPL is set to be played between March 29 and May 19. India and Pakistan last met in World Cup match back in 2015 where India emerged victorious.

ICC CEO Dave Richardson could announce the final fixtures either Thursday evening or on April 30. India will face Pakistan on June 16 at Old Trafford. The ICC wanted India to start off on June 2 but the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said it can not legally take part in a match till June 4 because of a Supreme Court ruling which states that there should be a 15-day gap between the IPL and other global events.

According to the report, Jackson admitted he had failed to shield the White House medical unit from the leadership drama. It seeks any communication between the Pentagon and the White House regarding "allegations or incidents" involving him.

He did return to all three formats for the national team and enjoyed a successful Test series against Australia, helping the Proteas beat the Aussies for the first time in the longest format on home soil.

Proteas batsman AB de Villiers insists a World Cup victory won't define his career but does admit it would be "nice to win it".

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.
