While there are plenty of good seats left to great matches, organisers are urging fans to get their tickets now to avoid disappointment.
ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said: “The ICC Cricket World Cup is on track to be the most open and competitive tournament ever. I’d urge everyone who can to get out and support their team.”
