Kuldeep Yadav picks England and Pakistan as teams to watch out for in 2019 World Cup

Despite losing the home five-match ODI series 2-3 to Australia, Virat Kohli-led Team India is considered the favourites for the upcoming 2019 World Cup in England and Wales. 

However, chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav believes two other teams also have the capability to shine in the showpiece event, starting on May 30.Kuldeep said that India have a chance to clinch the trophy but should be aware of England and Pakistan as the two teams which also have some quality players in their side.The spinner also felt that playing in home conditions will be an advantage for England.

"We definitely have the chance to bring the World Cup home. Apart from us [India] I think all the other teams are really strong," Kuldeep was quoted as saying by Sports Tak."But I feel England has a strong batting lineup as compared to the other teams. They will be playing in home conditions. I think Pakistan will also perform well in the World Cup looking at the way they have been performing," the 24-year-old opined.
"So I think England and Pakistan will be the ones to watch out for," he added.Playing in their last ODI series before the World Cup 2019, India recently suffered a shocking loss to Australia at home. Looking at their recent ODI performances, however, cricket pundits still believe the Men in Blue will be the title favourites.
