The ICC Cricket World Cup Bracket Printable
Though it has the “World Cup” designation, there are several slight differences between the ICC Cricket World Cup and other Cup tourneys. Despite the ICC World Cup being played over the entire month of June and halfway through July, the tournament features just ten teams the ICC World Cup only has one group.
That’s unlike other World Cups that has several, but like other World Cups, each team plays the every other team in the group, and the top teams at the completion of the group stage moves onto the semi-finals. When the top teams advance, this is when we can actually provide a bracket.
We created the ICC Cricket World Cup bracket above that not only features the best four teams that advacnced, but all ten ICC member teams that started out in the Cup. Print out the above bracket in PDF or in high resolution image. You can also print out the bracket (with the red border) at the top of this page by clicking here for the printable PDF bracket or here for the JPG version, if that’s your preference.
Ultimately, the Cricket World Cup tournament is a simple single-elimination four team bracket — one you would find at the FIFA World Cup or the Final Four of the NCAA basketball tournament. If you prefer a blank bracket without the participating teams or the ICC World Cup bracket, we’ve provided that to you on the link above.
