We are not too far away from 2019 Cricket World Cup that commences from May 30 in England and Wales. It is going to be exciting and quite close this time around with a lot of teams playing quality cricket. India and England are favorites but teams like New Zealand Australia, West Indies, South Africa are right up there when it comes to competing in the event.
Former New Zealand batsman Craig McMillan feels the ICC World Cup 2019 in England is going to be an open tournament. He said, “We have known this schedule for some time. We have played a ton of ODI cricket over the summer just not at the end of the summer. We have learnt a lot about our side over the summer – India showed as a couple of areas where we need to get better but I think this is the most open World Cup in history,” he said.
He continued, “There are six or seven teams with a real chance of winning. You have Afghanistan making serious strides with a couple of very talented young players – they will be a tricky opponent for any side. It’s going to be an open and exciting tournament because so many sides are capable of winning it.”
