All the stadiums in Australia will also be a lot better than they were in 1992, with the exception of the WACA which will be worse, especially if they've actually built that residential block at deep mid wicket like they keep promising. Plus you can add an extra one in Sydney that will be used.
Launceston might get a game as well, it's a better ground than anything in Canberra and Newcastle. Not sure what the f**k in Newcastle is capable of holding a world cup match.
Remember they need a range of capacities - can't imagine Kenya v Canada (for example) is going to draw much of a crowd.
Yeah but you don't want games played at bushleague venues. It is the World Cup after all. I can see a game or 2 played in Canberra but i'd be surprised if Newcastle gets a game unless they can provide a ground at least at Manuka level (which would probably only happen if they got a BBL team).
Judging by the number of Indians at the 2 T20 games, i'd expect all India's games to be played in or close to Sydney and Melbourne. Geelong might get one.
