But there’s the feeling that Wood who had performed brilliantly 4/60 in the third ODI run fest still has new altitudes to grasp with the white ball.

This is the level that Rainford-Brent, ICC Women’s World Cup conqueror with England in 2009, feels could prove the change this summer as the host nation search for their very first men’s title.

Rainford Brent said that “Mark Wood has just put in a fantastic performance in the West Indies and I think that extra pace that he could bring could be vital,”

“Some bowlers usually bowelled in the low 80s (mph) and therefore Wood can be useful England in the CWC2019.

“There’s no doubt that he will be brought in at some fact because he is kind of Simon Jones like and could bring a bit of extra speed in his bowling.

England had completed unit, I think there will be the set up this summer, and England got the experienced side and know-how to playing together.

“Wood is very much in his form and he can provide something really precious to the England bowling side.

“I also think that Jofra Archer could be another one that has an outside chance – everyone is talking about him in the white-ball game but the fact that he has got height and pace could see him brought in at some point.”

England had three time runners up in the men’s CWC.  Their time in the attention has failed to materialize having yet to win the CWC trophy.

But England with exciting mixture of youth and experienced players maybe can finally be their year.

This is the feeling Rainford-Brent retains at least, believing home ground could be the turning point England side so long as they can click on the day.

“This is the best chance England has ever had to win the World Cup,”

England Skipper is just an outstanding leader, to see how he carries himself, he is very calm under pressure that is the thing which you want and he has clearly had a vision about going out and playing courageous cricket to try and alter this side.

India’s No.4 position has been a highly controversial topic in the build-up towards the World Cup, with team management still trying to find a solution. Ambati Ryudu thoroughly believed to be the one to plug the hole, but his deprived form in the ODIs next to Australia has upset those plans but fans have bought their Cricket World Cup Tickets and hoping for India to get the trophy.

India tried playing Virat Kohli at that position during the Australia series, in a proposal to give the returning KL Rahul some game time. The Indian captain has declared in the past that he is open to moving down the order if the need arises, although the chance of that happening is next to none.

Many names have been brought up as possible candidates, but Pujara was never one of them. Ganguly recognized that he was making a highly eccentric pick, but offered his reason for doing so.

“See, I am going to say something that might not sound convincing to many viewers, and a lot of people might express amusement at my idea,” he told India TV. “But for me, Pujara should be India’s No. 4 in ODIs.

“His fielding is a bit weak but he is a nice batsman. I know people will be shocked by my opinion, but if you want a quality batsman who is better than the options India has tried late, I think Pujara is the best choice.”

If you want a class batsman who is better than the options India has tried of late, I think Pujara is the best option.

-Sourav Ganguly

Pujara’s board has taken a quick rise ever since hid series-defining performance in Australia, where he was India’s spinal column as they won a test series in the country for the very first time.

About a month, Pujara stunned the fans when he bangs his maiden T20 century – a 61-ball 100 in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy,  India ‘s home T20 contest.

Buttler has seven ODI centuries to him, including his thrilling 77-ball 150 against the West Indies previous month, is in the figure of his life now.

And Trescothick played with Buttler at Somerset previously in his career, believes the big-hitter holds the key to England ending 44 years of hurt and finally win the World Cup this summer on home ground.

“That 100 he scored against the West Indies was extremely astounding. To see someone, play in that fashion is quite spectacular,” said Trescothick, who was helping to launch the ‘Wickets’ mural in Taunton, which gives fans a chance to win a pair of Cricket World Cup Tickets.

“Jos is on fire and whatever game he is playing and in whatever format, he is performing superbly now. I really hope his form continues into the World Cup, because if he is in form then he will be the stand-out difference for England.”

The former England opener says that the tournament being played on the home ground cannot be underestimated and is a benefit for Morgan’s men.

Chris Jordan, England’s forgotten World Cup option?

While in the recent month all the talk has been of Jofra Arche’s chances of forcing his way into England’s Cricket World Cup squad, there is another bowler who might be worth further deliberation.

Chris Jordan, England's forgotten World Cup option?
Chris Jordan, England’s forgotten World Cup option?

But, as he manifests in the 1st T20 International of the series against West Indies, Jordan residue a highly skilled and qualified cricketer who could just be at the crest of his powers. Fans have bought their cricket world cup tickets and looking for Chris Jordan to play in the squad.

Taking the wicket of Chris Gayle was his key contribution in this game. That was a exploit that proved of his England equals for much of the ODI series (to be fair, they dismissed him in every innings but not before he had thrashed them into the stands a few times) and the manner in which he did so a well-intended  yorker just wide of off stump – recommended he had some skills which could prove priceless. Remember, England’s seamers appeared either unwilling or unable to bowl the delivery on demand in the ODI series so Jordan’s manifestation may have been timely. He had also rushed Gayle with a well-intended bouncer.

So confused by Jordan’s well-camouflaged slower delivery was Bravo, a skilled player, that he could only serve the ball into the air. Jordan, representing another part of his game that might give him an edge, made good ground and clung on to a one-handed diving catch. It was a reminder, if any were required, that he may be the best fielder vacant to England. Having such a player in the squad – even if they don’t make the XI – must be useful.

“Rishabh Pant played three T20Is and four Test matches in Australia and that had a brunt on his body,” Prasad told PTI. “He needed absolute rest for two weeks and then we will take a call on how many matches he will play against England. Let me put it at once, he is very much in our World Cup plans.”

“He is a champion player in the making and even he is not fully conscious the kind of potential he has,” Prasad said. “He proved that he can switch gears flawlessly. When we picked him for Tests, experts were skeptical about his keeping but 11 catches in a Test, record dismissals in Australia series proves that selection committee is justified.”

“But a lot of credit should go to Jasprit because Arun gave him a plan but it was up to him to make the effort to execute the plan. He has really worked hard. When we first picked him, so many were doubting whether it was cautious to pick a white-ball specialist but at the end of the year, we can all see the results.”

Prasad also spoke on the addition of Shubman Gill for the New Zealand tour, and what role he would be projected to play.

“Shubman is peaceful both opening the innings as well as playing in the middle-order. For the New Zealand series, we are looking at him as the set-aside opener behind Shikhar (Dhawan) and Rohit (Sharma),” Prasad said. “I won’t comment if he will make it to World Cup but he was exceptional as an opener for India A in New Zealand.

Mitchell Johnson Picks Maxwell As Captain In His World Cup 2019 Squad

Australia is still probing for the right equilibrium to their one-day squad going into the World Cup and players who will robust the system once David Warner and Steve Smith revisit. They might also be looking at captaincy options as Aaron Finch struggled to score a run in the summer and the hovering duo might not be handed leadership roles as soon as they return.

Mitchell Johnson, the former Australian leader, propose Glenn Maxwell would fit the bill of captain and that will also help him established as a batsman. “My decision to pick Glenn Maxwell as captain might lift up eyebrows,” Johnson wrote for Perth Now.

Glenn Maxwell is at this time the captain of his Big Bash franchise Melbourne Stars and has also led teams in the Indian Premier League with Johnson in the side. So he has the skill and the game sense according to the 37-year-old.

“He might not be your distinctive first-choice captain, though clearly, Melbourne Stars have seen something in Maxwell. Leadership has helped to settle him and bring the best out of him.

“I think we need our sportsmen to have a certain occurrence and have the confidence to give their opinion in a team environment and he absolutely does that. More importantly, Maxwell is a cricket dreadful who loves the game and thinks deeply about it.”

“I spent a lot of time with Glenn Maxwell in the IPL at both Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab and he was always very oral in team meetings… particularly with planning such as fielding positions for specific players. He knows opposition players very well and he doesn’t forget much.

“He reads the game well and that’s necessary for a captain. Maxwell is not a leader who will just let things roll on, either. He thinks outside the square.”

Ponting, the former Australia captain who led the team to two World Cup titles in 2003 and 2007, will take up his responsibility after the imminent series against India and Pakistan with present batting coach Graeme Hick shifted to focus on arrangements for the Ashes.

His selection follows the comments of CEO Kevin Roberts to ESPNcricinfo on Thursday that he was intense to occupy more former players in short-term coaching roles.

“I’m really thrilled to be joining the coaching group for this year’s World Cup,” Ponting said. “I’ve enjoyed my earlier short-term roles with the ODI and T20 Teams but World Cups take on a whole different meaning for me.”

“I have enormous assurance in the players available to the selectors and know we will be as tough to beat as any team, in this year’s World Cup.”

Head coach Justin Langer, who has had to compact with the dearth of Steven Smith and David Warner from Australia’s batting ranks during his first nine months in the job, believes Ponting will have value diagonally all aspects of the team.

“Ricky knows what’s mandatory to win World Cups, and I know he will be a precious guide to not just the batting group, but the broader squad as we focus our consideration on shielding our World Cup title,” he said. “Ricky and I have worked together with the Australian Men’s Team in the past, he is a predominantly driven coach who is fully invested in the players progress and humanizing Australian cricket.”
