The great London ground will stage five group matches at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.


The Oval will host five fixtures at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, including the opener between England and South Africa.

Set just a stone’s throw from the River Thames, the Oval – home of Surrey County Cricket Club – was the scene for the first-ever Test match on English soil between England and Australia in 1880 and has gone on to host over 100 Tests since.

It has also played host to a number of big World Cup matches, with ten fixtures taking place at the Oval across the 1975, 1979, 1983 and 1999 editions.

The most recent Cricket World Cup fixture at the Oval saw Pakistan spinner Saqlain Mushtaq take a hat-trick against Zimbabwe in 1999. 

England v South Africa – Thursday 30 May
South Africa v Bangladesh – Sunday 2 June
Bangladesh v New Zealand – Wednesday 5 June (D/N)
India v Australia – Sunday 9 June
