This article is all about the best top 3 teams with the remarkable batting line-ups at the coming World Cup edition. So, let’s get started….

ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Betting Lineup-

India

1983 and 2011 World Cup edition winners got the first place in our list as Team India has made a remarkable improvement over the past few years whether it’s bowling or batting department.

At the present time, the top 3 batsmen from team India are most likely the best in world cricket right now such as Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. These three are considered to be one of the best batsmen around the world and because of which India have been steadily winning in ODI cricket as they give a great starts in just about every game.

The best batsman across all formats in world cricket right now is Virat Kohli which is also the captain of Indian Team. He knows very well how to handle the team in every situation and is also one of the trump cards for India if they face rough status. The left handed Shikhar Dhawan gives the initial push to the game while on the other hand, Rohit takes some time to settle in.

The number 4 spot batsman comprise of Ambati Rayudu who can complement the top 3 with smooth strokeplay in the middle overs.

Hardik Pandya could also shine in the world cup as he is capable of big hits in contradiction of both pace and spin. Also, if MS Dhoni finds his long-standing rhythm and produces rapid cameos, India may perhaps be doubly dangerous.

England

England’s viewpoint to batting in ODI cricket has transformed radically after a poor performance in the 2015 World Cup. They not only changed their mind-set but also made personnel modifications which made it very clear that this time they are using their best strategy to win the game.

At the moment, England certainly has the best batting line up in ODI cricket. Well, they lost the 2nd ODI against Windies but their batting department shows the drastic positive change.

Same as India, England’s opening arrangement of Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow is well established as they both complement each other. The former is typically the attacker up front while Bairstow takes his time in advance he catches into 5th gear.

Talking about the middle order, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan have the good stability. Another good point in their combination is that they are right and left handed which makes it even extra hard for the opposition teams to cover them.

At even 5th and 6th spot the batting just keeps coming with Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, and both have their own individual techniques to win matches on their own. Also, Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes are also one of the key explanations that why they keep playing confidently right through the 50 overs.

New Zealand

The runner-up of 2015 World Cup edition got the third place in this list. New Zealand has given a great competition to Australia back then and for this edition has made many improvements in its batting department.

The Black Caps always give their best performances especially if we talk about team work. Team New Zealand never disappoints others when they focus on team work as they collectively do well as a unit.

From the past few years, New Zealand has accomplished to discover suitable batsmen who have the technique to adjust to whichever kind of match status.

For any format in the cricket matches, one thing is very common which is also the key to win the whole match and that is the performance of the openers. If the openers give their best performance than they automatically make a lead in the match but if they don’t play as good as they have to then the situation becomes quite opposite.

For New Zealand, the openers Martin Guptill and Colin Munro can be the plus point and are positively match winners on any agreed day.

The middle order batsmen who have the flexibility of playing the attacking or the defensive part as per the match status include Ross Taylor and Tom Latham. Colin de Grandhomme and James Neesham are quite amusing to take care of the death overs.

Under Kane Williamson leadership New Zealand possesses the runner-up position in 2015 edition of World Cup. This edition too he is going to lead his team and this time he will defiantly give more powerful competition than the previous one.
