Kumar Sangakkara’s Top Picks for the ODI World Cup 2023 Winners
The upcoming ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023 is drawing near, set to kick off on October 5. This event is significant because India is hosting it independently for the first time.
The opening match promises an epic showdown between the defending champions, England, and the 2019 ODI World Cup runners-up, New Zealand. Cricket fans around the world are eagerly anticipating this thrilling tournament, which will provide over a month of top-quality cricket action.
As the World Cup excitement builds, many cricket experts and former players are sharing their predictions and naming their favorite teams to win the prestigious trophy.
Kumar Sangakkara, a former Sri Lankan player, has also weighed in on the tournament. He mentioned that his top two favorites to win the trophy are India and England. He also gave credit to Sri Lanka for their performance in the Asia Cup.
“I think England and India are going to be top favorites…I saw Sri Lanka play the last game and how they played throughout the Asia Cup, so they could be challenging for a playoff position…once you’re in the playoffs, you’re a game away. You have a good day, you could be in the final” the 45-year-old said on Sky Sports Cricket.
