The Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara said that the World Cup in May-June-July this year will be one of the best of all time.

“I have a feeling this World Cup will be one of the best ever tournaments,” he told Hindustan Times. “There will be close competition and I am sure we can look forward to some great cricket. The fans will enjoy it. It will be a great occasion for the sport and I am really excited.”

“I think the ICC has been doing a very good job in terms of trying to spread the game and more importantly in terms of bringing new teams to the framework. MCC does it in a unique way and has planned to tie up and bring in exciting new countries.”

“It should be looked at how home boards do their scheduling. It has got more to do with the ICC to balance out the Future Tours Programme. There has to be adequate break between tours ensuring rehabilitation is done in a proper manner.

“There’s lot of international cricket and lot of domestic leagues taking place at the moment. They have to work with the home boards to balance things, not only for players and boards but even for spectators.”
