AB de Villiers claims World Cup win will only be a "bonus"

Cameron Bancroft Steven Smith ICC ball tampering

Old Trafford will host the 10-team tournament's most-anticipated match on June 16 between Asian arch-rivals India and Pakistan.

It is official. India will open its World Cup campaign against South Africa in Southampton on June 5, the International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed on Thursday.

Afghanistan will not be playing against India in Test matches in the new Future Tours Programme (FTP) from 2019-2023 but they will play all top nations, including Australia and England in that duration.

Glamorgan Chief Executive Hugh Morris said: "We have successfully hosted both the 2013 and 2017 ICC Champions Trophy tournaments and can't wait for next year where once again we can showcase Wales to the world".

They were joined by the Windies and Afghanistan, who booked their spot at CWC19 through the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier in March.

England could not advance beyond the group stage of the 2015 edition but have since grown into a formidable ODI outfit, rekindling hopes of breaking their World Cup duck on home soil.

De Villiers was the captain of the team then as they lost in the final over against New Zealand in the semi-final.

"We want to move towards stricter and heavier sanction for ball-tampering and all other offences that are indicative of a lack of respect for your opponent, for the game, for the umpire, for fans, for the media etc", he told reporters. "Earlier, we were scheduled to start on June 2 but we couldn't have played on that day".

Richardson said the events which occurred in the third Test at Cape Town which resulted in Australian skipper Steve Smith, his deputy David Warner and opener Cameron Bancroft being banned, was an eye-opener.

"In parallel with that, the creation of a culture of respect that embodies the spirit of cricket on and off the field of play", an ICC statement said.
