India is stepping into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament as one of the favorites to win the event. From a sturdy batting line-up to an adroit bowling department to an effervescent fielding unit, men in blue possess the recipe to claim glory in the most celebrated 50-over event in the history of the game.
Ahead of the commencement of the forthcoming mega-event, cricket pundits are busy in giving their verdicts regarding the favorite teams to win the tournament. Former Pakistani speedster Aaqib Javed also jumped on the bandwagon as, contrary to the popular belief, he rated India ahead of hosts England for the 10-team tournament.
The 46-year old, while explaining the rationale of his pick, added that England is carrying a fantastic unit which is in good form but the lack of finishing qualities as compared to India would lead to England’s demise in the 50-over competition. Moreover, Aaqib predicted India, Australia and England as three semi-finalists with South Africa, New Zealand and Pakistan to battle for the last spot of the final four.
