The two heavyweights would also like to wash the stains on the team while on tour to South Africa last year, the signs of which have already been given by them in IPL 2019.

Players to Watch out for- Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Jasprit Bumrah

While the Indian Team has been called the favorite leading to the world cup, there would be some jinx that they would love to sort out before heading into the ground. Though the team has two experienced openers in the form of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, the team relies heavily on the batting prowess of Virat Kohli, the captain.

He has always shown the maturity in batting that is required in England with his four centuries in the last test tour of England would add to his confidence a lot. The team would also look up to MS Dhoni for what he does the best behind the stump.

The rival teams must take note of India’s fiercest bowler in Jasprit Bumrah to do the maximum damage.

England

England

Players to look out for- Ben Stokes, Tom Curran, Eoin Morgan

 The England Cricket has flourished in the captaincy of Eoin Morgan making England the most weighed in the team to lift the world cup this year. But the team selection took a jolt when Alex Hales was reprimanded with a 21 days ban.

He is the key to a balanced England side with good batting and bowling averages. It would also to be seen how England side uses the experience of Eoin Morgan.

The southpaw has often considered himself a floater who rises above for the team at many occasions. The bowling too seems largely balanced with Tom Curran providing extra impetus with the likes of Liam Plunkett and Speedster Mark Wood.

 New Zealand

 New Zealand

Players to look for – Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor

The Kiwi side would look to manage the underdogs tag at the world cup but their capabilities must never be undermined by any side at any time. With a cooler head in Captain Williamson, the New Zealand side has every potential to pick the world cup trophy which misses from their trophy cabinet.

The onus would be on the experienced trio of Kane, Martin Guptil and Ross Taylor to make runs while the bowling department would heavily rely on the shoulders of experienced campaigners Trent Boult and Tim Southee. The inclusion of James Neesham in the side could well be the icing they required to notch up the precious trophy.

 South Africa

 South Africa

Players to look out- Faf Du Plessis, Quinton De Kock, Kagiso Rabada, Dale Steyn

 The one pinch that the South African team feels is the tag of ‘chokers’ while going into the world cup every time and they very well would try and change that this time around. The team has every potential to change their fate with an interesting team combination.

Though they would largely miss the services of A B de Villiers, the team would expect more from its captain Faf who himself has shown his preparedness in the recently concluded IPL. However, the team would expect the likes of Hashim Amla and Duminy to rise to occasions as well when it matters the most.

The African team would be bolstered with the return of its fast bowling machine Dale Steyn in the combination of ever-growing Kagiso Rabada whose stature has grown manifold in the recent years and remains the key to South Africa’s world cup hopes.
