Tom Harrison, the chief administrative of the England and Wales Cricket Board, gets the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 as a way to raise the game, and avowed himself “giddy with excitement” about the tournament. The Cricket World Cup 2019 will be contested from 30 May to 14 July in England and Wales, with 10 teams joining, and Harrison stated it an “unbelievable opportunity”.
“We’ve got huge plans for making sure the Cricket World Cup is a platform on which we grow the game in England and Wales,” Harrison told BBC Sport in an interview. “It is an unbelievable opportunity for English cricket, it’s up to us to make sure we take advantage of that.
“And for the first time, you sense we have this gilt-edged opportunity to take people from the white-ball game directly into the Ashes series, which immediately follows the World Cup.
“It’s a once-in-a-generation opportunity. I’m giddy with excitement about 2019.”
