Fans gather at the world's biggest cricket arena, the 130,000-capacity Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, which will host the opening match of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup between defending champions England and New Zealand. This year's World Cup has only 10 teams but will take 45 days to complete. The Twenty20 World Cup in the United States and West Indies in 2024 will see 20 nations compete in an event condensed into four weeks.
