We are roughly two months away from the biggest contest of cricket “ICC Cricket World Cup” and every cricket fanatic cannot wait anymore. As we all know that the world of cricket has changed a lot since International T-20 leagues have started coming to the upfront. Indian Premium League being the best of all to name one has given all international players a chance to gel with other international players and know their strengths and weaknesses.
AB de Villiers former South African player who has played for a couple of international premium leagues and is known to be a world class batsman considers Pakistan, India, Australia and England as strong contenders for this year ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
“The World Cup is a tough tournament. I have played in three of them and it’s never easy. You always feel like you’ve got a good squad, but once the tournament starts you very quickly understand that there are a lot of teams that are there to win it and have the ability to do so,” de Villiers told Sport24.
“I do believe South Africa have a chance, like we did at any other World Cup, because we are a world-class team with plenty of match-winners. The Proteas are certainly in the running, but I won’t say they are the favourites to be honest with you.
“India and England are looking strong, Australia have won five World Cups in the past and Pakistan claimed the Champions Trophy in the UK two years ago. Those four teams are probably the favourites.”
We think that De Villiers have picked up the best teams and no doubt it will be a very tough competition.
Lets see who brags the title out of these four teams and make their country proud.
