2019 Cricket World Cup: With less than a year to go for the next edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup, it would be difficult and naïve to make any predictions just yet. However, since the end of the last world cup, there has been a clear gap in the elite division of teams in ODI’s

Since this is the shortest world cup since 1992 (only 10 teams), we do not have a large pool of contenders to choose from. But right now taking all the past results and the current statistics in the game, we can narrow it down to two favorites – England and India- with New Zealand and South Africa also being close contenders. Uncharacteristically, Australia is unlikely to retain the World Cup title that they won back in 2015, while teams like Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and West Indies may find the going to be difficult.

India is currently sitting atop the ODI ranking table with a rating of 123 points, which is widely owing to Virat Kohli’s team’s 5-1 series thumping of the Proteas, while South Africa is sitting on second with 117 points.

England is the third-ranked team in the list with 116 points owing to their 4-1 thumping of Australia in Australia. New Zealand is fourth (115) while Australia is a distant fifth (110)

South Africa has a lesser chance of winning the world cup than England, even though they are placed one rank above them. This is so because the Proteas lack the momentum and consistency required to win the tournament.

In my opinion, India is strong favorites to take the cup home, owing to their recent form and consistency. Since the end of the last world cup, India has won 39 of the 59 ODI’s they have played, giving them a winning ratio of 2.052.  England has played the same number of games in the same time frame, winning one less game than India 38/58. New Zealand has won 33 out of their last 57 matches giving them a W/L ratio of 1:5

In conclusion, We would like to say that it is sure to be an enthralling tournament. If We had to choose a favourite for the tournament, We would pick India owing to their recent form, explosive talent, and rich vein of form and performance consistency. England has a major chance of bringing the World Cup home, owing to their favorable home conditions, unparalleled crowd support and a rich run of momentum.
