New Delhi: 2015 World Cup hasn't kicked off yet and the preparations for 2019 World Cup have begun.  The stage is set and Lord's Cricket Ground - the Home of cricket - is set to host the World Cup final, record for the fifth time. Lord's will host 2019 ICC World cup final and 2017 ICC Women's World Cup final, ECB revealed.

The schedule of the other matches to be played need to be approved by the ICC.

The ECB also revealed that the 2019 semi-finals will be held at Old Trafford in Manchester and Edgbaston in Birmingham.

Lord's Cricket Ground is the only one to have hosted multiple finals, those of 1975, 1979, 1983 and 1999.

India is the only country that has hosted a World Cup final at more than one venue, Eden Gardens in 1987 and Wankhede Stadium in 2011.

In the tournament Taunton will host international men's cricket for the first time since the 1999 World Cup.

Lord's staged a Women's World Cup final in 1993 when England beat New Zealand by 67 runs but this was before the tournament came under the auspices of the ICC. The remainder of the venues for the ICC Women's World Cup will be recommended to the ICC by the ECB Board in April.

ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said, the England Cricket Board (ECB) has a long-standing reputation for its ability to host world-class events and the ICC is delighted that the ECB is hosting three global events between 2017 and 2019, each at quality venues.
