How to get £13,000 to go to the next world cup

Top of the world rankings, a batting line-up that strikes fear into the oppo’s heart, and too many top bowlers to fit in the squad. Has there ever been a better time to host a World Cup? The Cricket World Cup kicks off on the 30th May and we’re giddy with excitement to see just how spicy this summer will be.

If that sounds familiar, you might also be looking ahead to four years’ time. India will be hosting the world’s top teams for the tournaments next edition in 2023. A glorious place to visit at the best of times, their passionate fans and party atmosphere will make it the trip of a lifetime. You could even see England defend the title (BECAUSE WE ARE DEFINITELY GOING TO WIN THIS YEAR).
