Australia are top favorites for WC19

Recommended Posts

Kuldeep chahal bumrah must play together with pandya at 7. Hopefully shami/bhubi performs well like the last match. Quite a good bowling line up. The emptiness is at 4-6. Hope dhoni scores a few. I'm also hoping Kedar jadav to put up his hand. Also, don't forget virat will play like a man on a mission.

People wrote off Australia in 1987 also as they had a similar rag-tag team at that time with just Allan Border as a star player. They can surprise and win the WC 2019 as underdog this time with no weight of expectations compared to England at home and India with the whole 1.25 billion rooting for #TeamIndia.

Australia is beast when it comes to WC.

 

I don't think Australia has fielded their full strength team in ODI after WC'15 apart from the ODI series they played in England after Ashes-2015 which they won 3-2..

 

Warner

Finch

Smith

Marsh

Maxwell

Carey/Handscomb

Stoinis

Cummins

Starc

Hazelwood

Zampa

 

This is still the best line up they can get in WC which they haven't been able to field because of injury..They have been giving debuts to rookies to Richardson,Joel Paris and Boland etc..

 

They don't believe in nonsense like experience or other bullshit which our TM blabber in interviews..Even during 2011-15 they did jack as far as ICC tourneys concerned be it WC'11,CT'13,WT20'14..Came 2015 and they were altogether different team..We have been beaten by almost their 2nd string team in last 2 tours and it is laughable when everyone is declaring India as favourites.

Starc was the top wicket taker in 2015, averages 21 in ODI cricket, Hazlewood 25 with an ER of 4.7.  This is a great bowling unit.

Not sure about Smith but Warner will make hell lot of difference when he returns. He will lift the spirits and the mojo will be back in full force.

:bow:

7 innings - 500 runs @84 and strike rate of 87.

Even without Hazlewood the attack looks very good.

Yeah, I wonder why they didn't pick him. They could have been a dominant force with him in the team. Maybe they consider the Ashes to be more important and are preserving him for test cricket?

Our bowling unit has bowled much better than Aussies. Starc has carried the Aussie attack so far, he's bound to have a couple of off days (one was vs us and Aussies struggled) our attack is not dependent on any one bowler. Overall we are a better balanced unit, Dhoni's abysmal performance and large ineffective Shankar drag us down.

Bherendoff and Lyon replacing NCN and Zampa has made Aus a potent bowling unit. They were always the favorite. You cannot overstate their handling of pressure and aggressive moves on the captaincy front. While Kohli looks towards Dhoni and Rohit for help, Finch directs traffic while fielding. And also makes aggressive moves as captain and his bowlers deliver.
