Lancashire's iconic home will host six ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 fixtures, including a semi-final.
Old Trafford, home of Lancashire County Cricket Club, will be the busiest venue at next year’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, as it will play host to six games, including a semi-final.
It also will be the venue for the most-watched fixture in international cricket when India take on Pakistan.
The ground itself is no stranger to World Cup cricket having been used in the 1975, 1979, 1983 and 1999 editions of the tournament.
England have played two Cricket World Cup semi-finals at Old Trafford, beating New Zealand by nine runs in 1979, but losing to India by six wickets in 1983.
The ground itself is the second oldest Test venue in England, hosting Tests since 1884, and recently renamed their Pavilion End the ‘James Anderson End’ after England’s leading Test wicket-taker.
