The ICC World Cup 2019 goes back to a round-robin format [in which each team plays against all other teams in turn] – last used in the 1992 World Cup – with 10 teams taking part.
Every team plays each other once before the top four teams advance to the semi-finals. The net run-rate might play a crucial role in deciding which teams make it to the knock-out round.
