The ODI World Cup 2015 fixtures will be played on the same format that was used during the last World Cup. There will be a group round and after that there will be three knockout rounds i.e. quarter final, semi final and final. Out of the 7 knockout games, 2 will be hosted by New Zealand i.e. the 4th quarter final (Wellington) and the 1st semi final (Auckland). The rest of the knockout games including the final will be hosted by Australia.
