World Cup Points Table 2019: Updated ICC Cricket World Cup Team Standings After Afghanistan vs New Zealand

KKR released veteran English left-arm seamer and T20 specialist, Harry Gurney from their squad in January. A good replacement could be the hard-hitting New Zealand all-rounder, James Neesham. The all-rounder has been in fine wicket-taking form in the Super Smash in New Zealand picking a heap of wickets. Representing Wellington, he took 11 wickets in 6 matches at an average of 15.54 and economy rate of 7.54 in the first half of the competition. Capable of hitting the long ball, Neesham has a strike rate of almost 148 in T20I cricket. KKR should ideally go all-out for one of Morris or Neesham.

The ICC world cup 2019 points table will be decided on the basis of the teams which have the most points in descending order. Teams will be given two points for a win, one point for a tie/NR (except the semi-finals and final which will be decided by a super over in case of a tie), and no points for a loss.

The top four teams in the ICC world cup points table by the end of the group stages will then take part in the semi-final, with the winners playing the final.

The 2019 tournament consists of 10 participating teams, out of which two sides — West Indies and Afghanistan — made the cut through World Cup qualifiers in 2018. England made the cut as the host nation.

As far as the tournament prize money is concerned, the winner of the 2019 World Cup will be awarded four million dollars (INR 28.04 crore), the highest prize money to date. Australia received 3,975,000 dollars when they won the 2015 World Cup on their home soil.

Apart from the winner, the runners-up will be given two million dollars (INR 14.02 crore), while the losing semi-finalists are assured of 0.80 million dollars (INR 5.60 crore) each.
