Just like soccer, there is a world cup every four years in Cricket as well. The top 10 ODI nations of the world are set to collide in the world’s biggest cricket event, the World Cup starting from the 30th of May. Indian Premier League was just concluded and we are now back to One Day Internationals(ODIs). All the teams have tried their best to prepare the strongest squads for the tournament as it takes place only once in every four years.
The English pitches will offer assistance to the seamers but the batsmen will find it easy to play strokes on once they settle down. On that note, let’s have a look at the top 5 teams in the tournament on the basis of their batting strength –
#5 West Indies
West Indies have a range of hard-hitting batsmen who can turn the game in just a few overs. All of their batsmen are reputed match winners and they have made a name for themselves with their six-hitting abilities. Thus, it will be hard for the bowlers to stop the Caribbeans.
#4 New Zealand
New Zealand have the classiest batting order in the tournament. Their batsmen know how to play well in England. The bowlers will have a hard time breaking the patience and temperament of the Kiwis.
With the right mix of stability and firepower, Australian batsmen will love to lead their team to the 6th World Cup. The Aussies always play their best at the World Cup hence, it will be no surprise if their batting order steals the show.
India has always been a batting powerhouse. The teams has always been over-reliant on its top order but the audience will witness a change in this trend as India have a solid trio of big hitters down the order who can add runs at a quick rate.
The hosts have the deepest batting order in the tournament. They have the right blend of proper top-order batsmen and match-winning all-rounders. Even their tail-enders have the ability to score runs. Thus, England will be a force to reckon with.
