Kevin Pietersen picks his favourites to win and lose in World Cup

Former England batsman and occasional off spin bowler Kevin Pietersen stated that he thinks India and England are the favourites to win the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.

“India and England are probably the favourites,” Pietersen said in an interview during the opening ceremony of the tournament.

This is because England and India teams are ranked first and second in one-day international (ODI) format. Additionally, both teams have shown success in previous matches leading up to the tournament.

On the other hand, Pietersen continued that he believes Australia is the dark horse of the tournament while West Indies is a wild card.

This comes after both teams having problems in matches in the last year. Although Australia won against India and Pakistan in ODI series and West Indies had a draw with their ODI against England, both still lost the tri-nation series in Ireland.

The Cricket World Cup started yesterday with England and South Africa playing against each other. The next match will be between West Indies and Pakistan today at Trent Bridge.
