England’s world cup to lose. It will be great for the game of cricket in the country, generation will be inspired and motivated to start and take up cricket. Cricket needs a major lift in England, UK as a whole. A world cup has so much media attendion, being the world cup is a big hype. Everyone knows what’s a world cup. Cricket being a huge sport in terms of the numbers of watches. Media will be huge, especially from subcontinent. England winning it will be great. Then the English premier league will get bigger boost.

After the ashes 2005 cricket went to sky and many generations probably haven’t watched cricket, 05-15. Not everyone has skysports which costs a lot plus when it was on Channel 4 it just had bigger impact on kids. Personally, I grew up watching England playing test cricket against big teams like Aus, Sa, many ashes series, and it was free to air. Hence maybe why I might know the game well. Since young saw the pure form of the game live on tv for free, it was the norm back then. But sadly ecb got greedy and handed it to sky and cricket took a hit for over a decade, the interest died out many ways. What looked like was going to take cricket further after ashes win in 2005 but didn’t, young kids didn’t take up cricket in the big numbers as expected. Despite all that England still in a healthy position, overal as far as cricket is concerned but the wider greater interests will be drawn if England win the world cup.

C’mon England!
Jeetbe Ebar Jitbe England!

I was willing to bet to do the same for eng as someone bet to do if pak wins the WC. But their one t20 wc win stopped me from betting against eng. They won a big tournamen before so they have showed that they have the mental capacity to win..but tbh with the current team and home ground advantage if eng dont win this wc i will call that solitary t20 win a fluke

Agree, SA will not make it to the semis. Their batting is very weak. Amla is past his prime.

Also do not write off SL. SL play well in multination tournaments.

Since it's a league based WC, you have to be utterly consistent and extremely fit to win the cup. Bench-strength, power hitting on flat tracks will also come into play. We lag in these.

I don't see BAN win more than 4 matches. Even if we beat WI & SL, we will then lose to AFG. We will then pump up and may win 1 or 2 matches against PAK/NZ/IND/SA. 3 things need to sort out:
1. Batting order and first 11
2. Power batting + tale-ender batting strength
3. Wrapping up opposition when we do get through the top & middle-order

ENG and IND seem to be more consistent and balanced team. No surprise there that they will start as fav.

I can't even see us win more than 3 match. That too by playing our best. 4 is being very generous here.

My guess is India will lift the trophy. They have a very well balanced team and most of the players are in form. Australia and South Africa will NOT enter the tournament as the favourites and that is a rare case in WC history.

Gotta take that arrogance of theirs down, and make it 5-0 in last four years, hopefully that will make them invite us to UAE but they will not most probably

India look invincible right now. New Zealand is the most difficult place to tour and they made a mockery of them.

You should aim to win it, but we won't I'm afraid. Whatever place we come in the table, will show where we are in this format. I'd be more than happy if we can reach the semi finals. We should aim to qualify for now. I'd be happy with at least a few wins against the big sides.
