Sydney and Auckland will each host a semi-final, while the Grand Final will be played at the MCG in Melbourne. Overall, Australia will host 26 games and New Zealand will host 23.

2015 Cricket World Cup venues were selected using a number of criteria, including location, capacity, facilities and transport infrastructure. Also relevant was the overarching vision of the organisation committee – to bring the Cricket World Cup to as many people as possible. For this reason, each host city has only one stadium which hosts events.
