The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be hosted by England and Wales from May 30, 2019, to July 14, 2019. This international cricket event will feature the leading ten cricketing nations conflicting for victory. The contestants are England, India, Australia, Bangladesh, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, and the West Indies. The contest will be played in the round-robin format confirming a match among all the nations before the semi-finals and final.
Pakistan has performed inconsistently after their Champions trophy win in England. They lack reliability, which can creel their winning chances. New Zealand has a winner’s metric of 0.38, which is very low for success. They have a decent bowling line-up, but their batting has taken them down with their unbalanced and unstable routines. Australia’s situation is a complicated one. It is likely that Smith and Warner will return to reinforce and rescue the team, and seeing the strength of their quality pace attack, they hold a chance to win the title back.
Limiting runs and taking early wickets will be vital for winning the tournament. India’s top-order has been cruel and their bowlers reliable. India can score big and restrict their opponents effectively. Their winner’s metric tops with 0.81 and is 0.28 higher than England and South Africa. It is no phenomenon that cricket experts are hitting their bets on the Indian squad in the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
