All the ten skippers going to lead their country in the 2019 World Cup visited Buckingham Palace to meet Queen Elizabeth Yesterday. Prince Harry was also present at the venue to greet the captains before the tournament begins.
Prince Harry brutally sledged Australian captain Aaron Finch when the duo met at the palace. The Duke of Sussex jokingly said, “You're getting on a bit now, aren't you? How long have you been playing?” reviving the old England-Australia rivalry.
Prince Harry will be present at the Oval stadium during the first match of the tournament between the host England and South Africa on May 30.
Queen Elizabeth met the group of captains including the Indian skipper Virat Kohli ahead of the World Cup. The official Twitter handle of the BCCI shared the picture of the meeting and captioned it, “The 10 #CWC19 Captains with the Queen.”
Along with host England, team India is going as one of the favorites into the tournament. Virat Kohli will lead team India for the first time in 50-over World Cup.
The World Cup 2019 will be contested in round-robin format for the first time since 1992. Each team will play nine matches, one against every other team before the top four qualifies for the playoffs. The winning captain will lift the trophy on Jule 14 at the iconic Lord’s balcony.
