    Cricket World Cup 2015 Launch

    The Cricket World Cup 2015 is set to be launched tomorrow in Australia/New Zealand. It's at 1:00am GMT which is 10:00am AEST.

    According to the official Cricket World Cup twitter account, the pools, fixtures and venues will be announced. Any predictions?

    Hopefully the MCG holds the final; it would be a travesty if ANZ Stadium holds it. Apparently the original agreement was for a 50-50 games split, but according to the below article from a couple of months back, it may be more titled in Australia's favour.

    Good job they moved the Ashes so as it didn't coincide.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I'll go along to whatever game is at Westpac stadium even if it is Canada vs Somebody.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Certainly is a great ground, but you'd think it wouldn't get the final due to the lower capacity compared to the likes of MCG, ANZ, Adelaide Oval etc. I'm started to get worried that ANZ may get a semi-final though in front of the SCG though. Would be a huge mistake if they go that way.

    If ANZ gets a semi-final over the SCG it'll be an utter farce.

    They shouldn't even be playing cricket there.

    And yet the 2019 English summer features both the World Cup and Ashes

    What do we reckon the Australian stadiums will be? Depending on how many they choose, I reckon MCG, SCG, Adelaide Oval, Gabba, WACA, ANZ, Bellerive, Manuka and Marrara (Darwin). I read somewhere recently about the possibility of Blacktown, so I guess that could be another possibility.

    Darwin is unlikely to get any games with the World Cup being on during its wet season. The other 7 grounds will get games for sure, I think gone are the days that a World Cup can go to places like Albury like the last World Cup back in '92.
