Looking at all the squads it looks like India, England have most bases covered and are likely to start as favorites given their form in the last year or so. Australia are always a danger in a worldcup and they have found form leading into the worldcup as well. South Africa have always put out a good team and have a very strong bowling attack. Teams like West Indies, Pakistan have the talent and potential to beat any team on their day. All the teams have picked well and will hope to get going in the worldcup.
Which of these teams do you think is the strongest and most probable to win the tournament?
