The 2019 Cricket World Cup is just a few months away. It is going to be the biggest extravaganza of the year. It will be played in England and Wales. Former Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid has named India as one of the favorites for ICC’s mega event.

Dravid said, “I think India are playing very good cricket at the moment and go in as one of the favourites. Hopefully, we will peak in the next few months.

“Wickets will be very flat in England and I expect it to be quite a high-scoring World Cup. When we were in England with A team, 300 was regularly scored,” Dravid said, citing how things have changed in the last two decades.

“A lot more runs will be scored compared to the 1999 World Cup, where we used the Dukes white ball. The white Kookaburra with two new balls, revised field restrictions (different Powerplays) are different, so you can’t compare the two World Cups.”
