The next edition of the ICC world cup, which is the 12th edition, will be held in England and Whales. The decision to host the event in those countries was reached in the year 2006 after the two cities agreed to withdraw from the 2015 contest. The two have well developed infrastructure that can host that global event.
It will be recalled that this is not the first time the two cities are holding the event. This is the fifth time as they have hosted it at least four other times in the past. The cricket world will be returning to a familiar terrain in a few months from now.
