Be it any team,its chances of winning world cup is highly reliant on its top 2 or 3 players. Every team will devise its strategy around them. So lets look into those keys players of every team who could win their country a world cup.
Rohit’s place at the top is certain .He had a exceptional 2014 and included a double century in his record by the end of the year against srilanka. He has the knack of playing long innings once he settle at the turf. He scored a fine century in the first match India played in triangular series. And about kohli,one doesn’t have to say his place in world cricket. Al the opponents will devise their stratagy around kohli.
Australia are clear favorites for the tittle and the are playing at their home ground. It is a team full of match winners. We can pick Warner and smith only because of their current form. Else they have got very ominous line up with Starc coming at 10 or 11.Warner is a kind of player who can take away match from opposition if he bats 15-20 overs. With the kind of form he is in it will a nightmare for opposition.Smith is in form of his life. He can play according to situation demands. He can adapt to any conditions. He can slog and also defensively when needed.
Mahela and Sanga
These two can be said as Srilanka’s most successful batsman. Both of them a playing are their last world cup and would like to end their career on winning note. Unfortunately they are never part of world cup winning team.Srilankas chances are also looking bleak after watching their performance in New Zealand which is also co-host of world-cup 2015.None of the players are performing apart from Angelo Mathews.
Devilliers has recently rewrote records after scoring fastest century in ODI history by scoring a 31 ball century. It can be described as epitome of devilliears capability to destruct.Amla on the other side adds calmness to the side even by scoring with a strike rate of above 85.If you look at Amla’s stats ,one would contemplate if he is better than Kohli. SA has never won a world cup and this might be a great chance as they are playing at similar condition to home.
Brendon – Williamson
These two can be best described as analogous to ABD and Amla of SA. Fortunately for NZ both of them are in prime form and they have the leverage of playing at home. Kane Williamson is regarded as future of NZ cricket.
