And, in the revised format we will see each team playing least 6 matches even if they ruled out of tournament due to early defeats. Bangladesh will be for the first time co-hosting a World Cup. India will be hosting 29 of the total 49 planned matches. And, the final is going to be played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai!! I wish good luck for India to prepare and host the trophy well!
