Two times champion,India will play their first match against South Africa in SouthHampton.India are the B to win but they really have to cover their bases in 1 year spam.They really rely upon their top 3 batsmen.If they want to win the title,their middle order is less furnished till now and has to show some capabilities.

#My picks for Wc 2019 ( Top 4)
Pakistan can be a very dangerous side in English conditions because their bowling line. But can their batsman score enough runs?.They have “Mohammad Amir”,”Hasan Ali”and “Junaid Khan” who can demolish the opposition anytime. they also have a really good leg spinner “Shadab Khan”. Their batting will decide that how far will they go.They really have to give enough runs to their bowler to defend. With the likes of “Fakhar Zaman” ,”Shoaib Malik” and “Inam Ul Haq” they have to score runs. Their middle model still looks weak. but still on their day they can upset their opponents.
India looks a very strong side on papers as well as in ground.But the fact is names usually don’t give the real story but records does. They rely too much on their top order. with the likes of “Rohit Sharma” “Shikhar Dhawan” and “Virat Kohli” on top,they can demolish any bowling line. But the question arises can their middle order offer them runs in critical situations? If their middle order contributes with bat they can be the best side in the world. Their 5th bowler again is a problem for them.Will India drop Hardik Pandya and go with the 5th bowler?. “Kuldeep Yadav”and “jasprit bumrah” again will hold the key in bowling department but 20 overs from both of them will not be able to win the match.So can the remaining bowlers give contributions? If India can work in the areas they will be favourites to win the tournament.
The brand of cricket which the English side is playing can be very deadly. First of all their top order is very heavy. They play fearless cricket. As a result this has helped them to win more games after 2015 world cup. Above all they will get support from their home crowd. Their middle order is very good because of the likes of “Eoin Morgan” “Moeen Ali” and “Ben Stokes”. Noteworthy they have got their best batsman to finish games for them and his name is “Jos Butler”. Thier bowling still looks a little weak,but with the likes of “David Willey” and “Mark wood” they can take wickets upfront.
Many people might not agree with me due to their recent performances. Maybe because of the team that they are having at present. But mark my words their top 5 players will come back to play the ICC World Cup 2019. “Steve Smith”, “David Warner”, “Patrick cummins”, “Josh Hazlewood” “Mitchell Starc” will return to the squad.
Thier opening bowling looks very very powerful when it comes to stop the oppositions in the first 10 overs. Above all they also have their bases covered in death bowling. Patrick Cummins and Mitchell Starc both the death over specialist can be very handy. Their slight weakness is there middle order,but with the hard hitting of Glenn Maxwell and Marcus stoinis at the death overs this team becomes a complete package to watch.Noteworthy Marcus Stoinis will be an “X” factor for Australia in World Cup.At times he can be used as a floater or with the finishing role.With swinging conditions in Engalnd he can be very handy with his 10 overs. Don’t forget that they have won the title five times so they know how to win Big tournaments and what you they have to do. In pressure situations they bring out the best from them that’s what make them special and unique apart from the other teams.
Therefore i picked Australia as the hot favourites to win Icc world cup 2019 again.
