Before we get into details, kindly find the latest team-wise ODI rankings in the below-attached table. Based on this list, we have selected teams that are doing pretty well in ODIs.
Now, let’s delve deeper into the top 4 teams that we have selected and what makes them the best claimant for the 2023 cricket world cup.
Playing/Home Conditions that could help India
The tournament will be held in India which means the Indian players will have an extra advantage in their home conditions. It becomes quite impossible to win against India in the Indian subcontinent. The Indian team would be familiar with its pitches and playing conditions which would eventually help them to take better decisions during the tournament. India always dominates the series that is played in India and the same thing could happen in the cricket world cup 2023.
Team strength includes experience, quality players and their form, player combinations, and more. The Indian team for the upcoming cricket World cup has not been selected yet, however, there are quite a few big players that are most likely to be part of the tournament. The list contains the name of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Ravinder Javeda, and Jaspreet Bumrah. Other than these players, there are some other players as well that have recently become part of the Indian team. These are young players full of talent and potential which would help India to win the cricket world cup 2023.
Not only did India win two cricket world cups, but it also reached the playoffs many times. However, they could not make it all the time and had gone through some downs. The Indin side became the world champion in 1983 for the very first time when they registered a historic victory over the deadly west indies. After, winning the 1st ODI world cup, it took 28 years to win the 2nd time although they made theirs to the finals of the 2003 and 1996 world Cups.
India may not have won many world cups like Australia but it has made its way to the playoffs (quarter, semi, and finals) many times. It indeed shows the potential of the Indian side.
Australia does not need an introduction as it has dominated world cricket for more than 3 decades. We have picked up the Australia side based on its past/recent performance and overall team strength. The mighty Australians have known for the spectacular and remarkable records that they have made in the history of the cricket world cup. Now let’s look at the parameters on the basis of which we have selected Australia in our list.
Unbelievable Past Records
Australia is the only team in the world that has won the most world cup so far. The biggest reason behind it is that they always have world-class players who would adapt to the situation. Australia won the cricket world cup in 1987, 1999, 2003, 2007, and 2015. This is the reason why Australia is one of the strongest sides that could win the world cup in 2023.
Recent Records and overall team strength
Australia is currently standing at number 5 in the ICC ODI ranking which does not match its reputation. However, has won some of the bilateral series that have been played over the last few months. This is not only the case, they have their best possible squad available at the moment. The team includes Steve Smith, David Warner, Marnus Labuschagne, Shaun Marsh Matthew Wade, etc. These are highly talented and reputed players in world cricket and thus, they provide a strong back strength to the Australian side.
