Former Australian cricket team captain Ricky Ponting said that Pakistan can be proved as a dangerous side in the Cricket World Cup 2019 starting from May 30.
Ricky Ponting revealed his favorite team for Cricket World Cup 2019. He said that the host team England may clinch the title this time. Ricky Ponting is regarded among the successful captains as Australia won the World Cup 2003 and 2007 under his captaincy.
The former Australian captain revealed that the English team is presently in great form and as the tournament is being played in their home country, which would act as an added bonus for the team.
Ricky Ponting said that initially, it would be England for two reasons. They’ve started playing well in limited overs and the tournament will be played on home. Naturally, they will have some home advantage. He further added that England will be challenged by India and Australia.
Regarding West Indies, South Africa and Pakistan, Ricky Ponting said that they are also good. This would be a very open World Cup. Although England are clear favorites, there are other strong teams who can cause upsets.
