As cricket is a team game, hence the whole lot needs to fire in order to accomplish the unreal task of winning the tournament. It takes years to build a side and find the right balance. Most of the sides look good on the paper and it will be interesting to see how they approach on the field.
Regardless of being a team game, cricket too has heroes from different nations who are capable of turning the game on their own. These extraordinary players have made a special mark on the leaderboards and currently ruling the charts of cricket.
Here is a list of players who can win matches on their own in world cup 2019
1. Australia- Steve Smith
The most successful team of cricket had to face their most difficult phase as the two pillars of their team were banned for a year in sandpaper controversy. However, both of them are highly talented lads who will surely found their golden touch when they will return to the field.
Steve Smith, the skipper is among the modern day great who has achieved unrealistic heights in a short career. Smith was an integral part of last world cup winning squad. He holds the key for Australia if they want to lift the cup on the trot. Also, his captaincy is the major weapon for the kangaroos.
2. India- Virat Kohli
Indian cricket has seen new heights in recent years. They are undoubtedly one of the best sides today who have tasted success at home as well as overseas. They have a perfect playing XI embracing some of the highly talented players who need no introduction. Their openers are known for big partnerships, bowlers are capable of troubling any opposition. Spinners have made the batsmen dance on their beats. Dhoni, with all his experience, is a gem of cricket.
There’s one man who stands tall among others is the run machine, Virat Kohli. Kohli is currently the best batsman of the generation who is piling hundreds on almost every outing. Kohli, as a skipper has risen up the tempo which was already set up so high by MSD. Kohli can really demolish any side with his consistent ability to score runs.
3. England- Johnny Bairstow
England is a strong contender for the world cup 2019. They have never done it in past, but the kind of form they have been in, it won’t be amiss to consider them the real contenders in their home conditions. They have the much-needed stability with almost everyone capable of turning up the heat at any position.
Home conditions favor the side a lot as world cup 2015, where prime minister Gillard and Key open innings for CWC 2015, proved to be favorable for the Aussies.
Can you imagine Jos Buttler, one of the most attacking openers today has to bat at no. 6 or 7 in his team? Well, they have a white shark at the top that has risen up through the ranks like nobody else. Bairstow has an average touching 50 at an astonishing strike rate of 104. He is a special talent who can finish the game in the first few overs.
These batsmen are really talented and have proved everything in the cricket. They are capable of taking on any bowling side and we hope to see the best of these rock stars in the upcoming world cup 2019.
