“Australia is my first favourite. They should definitely play the final and their opposition in the final will be between two of my joint second-favourite teams, England and India,” said Gautam Gambhir while speaking to Times of India.

The England and Wales Cricket Board got a settled squad in the ODI format with all the departments being covered with the eligible players. The home conditions will also put them as one of the favourites to win the tournament. Meanwhile, the Indian National Cricket Team also got the brilliant squad.

”Not because England are playing at home. Of late they are an improved side, having quality cricketers in almost all the positions. They are balanced. With Jofra Archer, England will be a force to reckon with. They are blessed with four genuine all-rounders, of which mentions should be made of Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali,” Gautam Gambhir added.

The tournament begins from May 30 and will be played in England and Wales. While India will be looking for their third title – after success in 1983 and 2011. England is hoping to pick up their first silverware. Meanwhile, Australia will enter as the defending champions.

All in all, it is going to be an interesting ICC World Cup 2019 with all the teams heading into the tournament with their best players. As the tournament is going to be a round-robin, it is going to be a tough job for the players.
