I will again start with Australia and England as favourites.

India also have a strong chance.

Pakistan has an inconsistent team and South Africa just flatters to decieve under pressure every time.
It will soon be Australia 5 out of the last 6. Taking the series against India in India back in March was a nice warm up.

How big is Cricket craze during world Cup ? I know about phenomenal TV Ratings in India , Pakistan Bangladesh.
But what about Australia, England, NZ South Africa ? How big are the TV ratings in those countries ? Any broadcast on popular or public TV channels or only Pay channels ?

Warm up Rounds results should not be taken seriously. Players are even scared to dive in order to stop the ball. All they want is to prevent injuries.

But Yes NZ is a good team.

In Australia, all matches in which Australia is involved, along with the Semi-Finals and Final will be broadcast live on free to air TV. All matches will also be telecast live on Pay TV Foxtel.

Ratings will be solid, but the time difference isn't too favourable for many of the games.

Toss will be vital as scores upto 350 are getting easily chased.
One of these 5 teams - England, Australia, India, New Zealand, South Africa will be unlucky to lose the Toss in a vital game and miss Semi-Final berth.

Fabulous Catch.
What a performance by England.
Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Morgan in Batting.
Great Fast bowling by Jofra Archer and one of the best catch ever in One Day Cricket by Ben Stokes. Infact the fielding, catching, Run Out all was of very high quality.

England is already the favourite to win World Cup.
Can Australia match them ??

It was a beauty! I sent the video to an American mate, a big baseball fan (as am I). He wondered if Stokes had dropped his glove....
