Watch: Adam Gilchrist Takes a Dig at England Ahead of the 2019 World Cup
As hosts England and gearing up for the 2019 World Cup, cricket pundits have already termed them firm favourites for the impending quadrennial event. Since the 2015 World Cup debacle England as a team has shown character to improve leaps and bounds. Thus, they are currently sitting at the top of the perch.
Besides, England are in ominous touch. They have recently thumped Pakistan 4-0 in the five-match series. Currently, England is having a depth in their batting department which has overall benefited the team in chasing 300-plus targets in the recent past.
With featherbeds expected at the forthcoming World Cup, England-Pakistan series has given a fair hint when teams went on to score in excess of 300-runs
