#4 New Zealand
When it comes to ICC tournaments, the Kiwis simply raise their game a few notches. Even though they haven’t managed to win any World Cups so far, yet they have performed well historically. The finalists of the last edition possess enough strength to go the distance this time around.
The ODI World Cup 2019 will be a tournament of high scores as the pitches will assist the batsmen. New Zealand has Colin Munro, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, James Neesham to hunt for the big scores. It’s one of the best batting line-ups currently. If they perform consistently, we might see them holding the trophy on July 14.
When it comes to bowling, Trent Boult and Tim Southee are the most reliable ones. They hunt in a pair and can make use of the 2 new balls. Apart from them, they have Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson to choose from for sheer pace. Also, Ish Sodhi will slot in as the proper leg-spinner in the era of wrist spin.
