Winner prediction for the ICC ODI Cricket World Cup 2019
As you have seen that Australian team has won this Cup for maximum times, they may be the favorites again. But the Australian’s team form is not to the level of what they were in the last world cup, or the other world cup’s before. If their performance remains like the way it is at present, they might lose the 2019 world cup.
Indian team is the 2nd favorites after Australia who can win the upcoming world cup. The team’s performance is good under the leadership of Virat Kohli, who himself is in a very good form. And of course, they will get all the help from the previous Captain MS Dhoni.
Talking about England and New-Zealand, I can’t say much as they have never won a single world cup. They are a good team but they somehow not live up to the reputation they have when they play in big tournaments. South Africa is also another team who are called Chokers just due to the same reason.
For the other teams, I think they cannot win this world cup because they are not up to the mark. West-Indies was a great team once but they are now considered as a weak team.
ICC ODI Cricket World Cup Winners List: Conclusion
ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is just a few months away. All the teams are preparing to give their best performance. As I type this article, Indian team is currently playing test series in England. They have failed in the tests but won the ODI series. So I have a hope that India will win the world cup. Virat is in very good form and he is leading the team in a good way in ODI’s.
Looking at the ICC ODI Cricket World Cup Winners List in the table above, Australian team seems the top contender for this world cup, and then comes India.
But let’s hope that the other teams also play their best game so that this world cup becomes the most power-packed world cup of all time.
