Tickets for ALL of the ICC Cricket World Cup games have popped up for redemption with Emirates Skywards miles.
(EDIT: Emirates has fixed the website bug and you can now redeem)
I am not a cricket fan, by any means, so I can’t really comment on the value. I assume that Afghanistan v New Zealand will not be sold out – although 6,000 miles may still be a good deal – but I’d guess that England v West Indies is well worth 15,000 miles.
These are not hospitality packages, for clarity. They are standard admission tickets.
Games are taking place across England and Wales and start at 4,500 Skywards miles per ticket (Afghanistan v Sri Lanka in Cardiff). The competition starts on 30th May and ends on 14th July.
Remember that Emirates Skywards miles transfer instantly from American Express Membership Rewards if your accounts are already linked.

How to earn Emirates Skywards miles via UK credit cards
Emirates no longer has its own UK credit card. However, you can earn Emirates Skywards points by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards. These are:
American Express Preferred Rewards Gold – 10,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus
The Platinum Card from American Express – 30,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus
American Express Rewards credit card – 5,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus
Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Emirates Skywards miles. The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Emirates Skywards miles.
