As you are all aware, 2019’s ICC World Cup would consist only of 10 teams out of which 4 would qualify for the knockouts i.e. the semis. Also, in the coming ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, each team would battle it out against every team in a round-robin format. Therefore, with each team playing 9 matches and only the top 4 qualifying, each team would have to aim to win 6 games to have a good chance for qualifying. The teams are as follows:
The minnows could win a shock game or two. It would be a miracle if they even finish inside the top 6. They would be hoping to at least notch up a couple of wins.
The defending champions, Australia might find it tough to defend their trophy. Expected to make the semis but how far can they go after that?
The other minnows or is it? Bangladesh would be in full throttle and would be hoping to make to finish above a couple of teams if not finish in the top four.
Hosts and the top-ranked side, England are one of 3 cricketing chokers. They are one of the favourites if not the favourites but with their chocking ability, runner-ups is where they will end up.
Maybe the most fancied side after England, India would love to win the Cup after being knocked out in the semis last time out. I think that India could well make it 2 World Cups out of 3.
Chocker No.2, the runner-ups of the 2019 edition might even struggle to qualify for the semis. They wouldn’t be able to make it to the semis, according to me.
One of the best-pace attacks in the world, the bouncy pitches of England as well as their confidence-boosting win against England at Lord’s would propel them through to the semi-finals.
They still haven’t been able to digest the loss of greats like Sanga, Mahela and Muttiah and hence I see them just a team participating and not challenging for the trophy.
AB’s sudden retirement means that Chocker No.3 is in great trouble. With him, semis might have been on but without him it’s curtains for their dreams of winning the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
The likes of Bravo and Gayle don’t play for the national squad which is a huge disappointment. If they were to play the World Cup then West Indies might actually be challenging for a spot in the semis.
