At last the waiting is over and now the greatest show in the Cricket World will begin at the Norendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad today.  

Top 10 teams will fight against each other for the most coveted

World Cup trophy. Now the question crops up who will be the Champion in the World Cup?

Four teams are being taken as the top favourites to win the title.

Hosts India, defending Champions England, mentally geared up  Australia and two times runner up New Zealand are top contenders to lift the trophy.

India, the topmost contender may win the tournament, as the host team have an extra advantage. It is always very tough for any team to win against India at their home ground. Rohit Sharma and CO are very familiar to their pitches.

They are used to play at all the grounds across the country and have every capability of scoring a huge total on any of the grounds. 

India always dominates the series on the visitors who play in their home grounds and so, it is very much predictable that India will dominate in World Cup, 2023.

Australia is an all-time favorite team in the World Cup Cricket. 

The Aussies clinched the title for the highest five times. They have been dominating the world cricket for more than three decades. The Kangaroos present performances and their past records tell that they can win the title.

The Aussies are the most successful team in the World Cup so far who always have some world-class players, and they can adjust with any condition.

The Baggy Greens won the World Cup in 1987, 1999, 2003,  2007, and 2015. This is why, Australia is one of the strongest side that could win the World Cup 2023.

Reigning champions England are undoubtedly amongst the top contenders of the tournament. The three-Lion side comprised some destructive batters and bowlers like Joe Root, Jos  Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, Harry Brook and Jason Roy (batters), Adil Rashid, Mark Wood and Sam Curran (bowlers) and Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes (all-rounders). 

New Zealand is a balanced team at present. They reached final in 2015 and 2019. Kiwis have some renowned batters like KN  Williamson, Tom Latham, Martin Guptill and bowlers like  Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee and Boult. The Black Caps certainly try their best this time to win the title. Once they were dark horses but for the last few editions, they have turned into one of the favorites to win the trophy.


But out of the fours – any of the team could come forward leaving behind the favourites. It can be predicted that both Pakistan, Sri Lanka, won the cup for once, could also shine this time again.

Any of the underdogs also could appear as dark horses to stun the cricket world, as in the previous different editions of the World Cup they made upsets beating the favourites.
