The ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 is ready to end after the grand finale between three-time IPL winners Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Sunday (May 12). After the realization of arguably world’s largest T20 league, the focal point will shift towards the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 scheduled to begin from May 30 onwards in England and Wales. Ahead of the quadrennial event, former England captain Nasser Hussain has picked his four favorites to raise the 2019 World Cup and the picks would possibly wonder many.
Hussain has now not picked both of Australia or South Africa in his top 4 probables to raise the coveted trophy while naming India and England as the two warm-favorites to win the showpiece event. Apart from the hosts and Men in Blue, Hussain decided on New Zealand and Pakistan as he reckoned that both can wonder people with their unpredictability.
Speaking on the ICC Cricket World Cup Preview display on Sky Sports, Hussain stated: ‘You look at India, they travel so properly. They’re in the mix.
‘There’s a strain on England at domestic but they are a splendid facet. And I think New Zealand and Pakistan can each wonder human beings. I’m going with that 4,’ the previous England skipper introduced.
While the likes of England, Pakistan, Australia, and New Zealand have already begun their arrangements for the quadrennial event, maximum of the World Cup-bound Indian gamers are still plying trades in IPL 2019.
Being the hosts, England is termed because the outright favorites and the Eoin Morgan-led outfit has done continuously within the 50-over layout following their disastrous day out in 2015 World Cup. They move into the World Cup being ranked the No. 1 ODI side and will be keen to win their maiden name.
The 2019 World Cup is scheduled to begin from May 30 with England taking up South Africa at Kennington Oval, London. Two thousand eleven brings the Cricket World Cup to you, the biggest one-day cricket tournament for some time to come. It does not matter how many other cricket tournaments are around the corner including Twenty Twenty IPL tournament but the World cup is a totally different ball game with intense emotions and sense of patriotism involved in each and every game and each and every cricket fans hearts. If we ask fans from each country “Who will win Cricket World Cup 2011?” the response would be the wish and hope that their own country wins it. This cricket world cup is very special, the reasons beings; one, it is played in the subcontinent where players are gods and stadiums are battlefields.
The love and passion which one can find in the subcontinent cannot be seen anywhere in the world. Two, subcontinent pitches are high scoring; add to it the small size of the stadiums, you may expect more sixes and fours hit in this world cup than in any past cricket world cups. Three, the majority of teams are in great form. You can not name a single team which is not expected to give more than 100 percent in this tournament. We do not know who will win this year’s cricket world cup but I have made a few tarot cards and cartomancy predictions as to the expected performances of the teams involved in this cricket world cup 2011.
