Australia The Best Contender for Cricket World Cup 2019

Now a days mostly people are talking about the best contenders for the world cup 2019 which is going to be played from 30th May in England and Wales. The defending champions and the winners of five world cups are once again favorite because of their recent performance in ODI matches. Australia has won the 5 matches ODI series by 3-2 against India, after that they have recently clean sweep Pakistan by 5-0 in March 2019. The consistence performance of Usman Khawaja and Aaron Finch in these series is a good sign for their team. They have a lot of confidence after winning against India and Pakistan that will surely encourage them in World Cup.

They are ranked 5th in currently ICC ODI team ranking. After the return of David Warner and Steve Smith in Australian squad, their batting line-up will become stronger to lift up the world cup trophy. The Australian team is the most consistent team in the world cups. They have never lost a semi-final and have played seven finals of the total eleven world cups. Their bowling department is equipped with Mitchel Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Adma Zampa and Nathan Lyon that is enough to destroy any batting line. Mitchel Starc is the key for Australia in world cup because he is the leading wicket taker bowler in the previous world cup.

Australia will start their journey in world cup 2019 against Afghanistan on June 1 at Country Ground, Bristol. When it comes to world cup, don’t take Australia as an easy team because they have a pretty good record in world cups history. As the last two world cups have won by the host team, 2011 by India and 2015 by Australia, lets see this time host team will repeat this or any other team will hold the Title.
