Benefits of Round Robin Format

  • There is a strong competition between all the participating teams in the tournament.
  • Until all the matches in the league are over, it is difficult to say which teams will reach in the knockout, so the tournament remains adventurous till the end.
  • Better team always remains in the title race. There is no scope for ‘Group of Death’.

Loss of round robin format

  • Due to having more matches, the tournament gets taller, so the result comes late.
  • Challenge to fitness for the players from fitness to retaining form increases.
  • More grounds and match officials have to be used.

According to Kohli, ‘looking at the format of the tournament, it will definitely be the most challenging World Cup so far. If you look at all the participating teams, they are very close to each other. Even a team like Afghanistan has made a lot of progress since 2015. In such a situation, it is necessary to play with their full potential in every match. This is a different kind of challenge, so that everyone has to be reconciled. ‘
