Champions (2019)

England entered the tournament with high hopes and didn’t disappoint, clinching their maiden ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup title in a thrilling fashion. The final against New Zealand was a nail-biter, with both teams ending in a tie after 50 overs and the Super Over, leading to a boundary countback to determine the winner.

Crucial Encounter

New Zealand (5 October), Ahmedabad

The tournament opener against New Zealand promises to be a thrilling encounter, with the Kiwis seeking to avenge their 2019 World Cup final defeat. England’s star all-rounder, Ben Stokes, who was instrumental in their previous victory, will be a key player in this match. Both teams will be eyeing a semi-final spot, making a strong start crucial.

Player to Watch

Ben Stokes

England’s Test captain, Ben Stokes, has been in sublime form over the past year. His performances in the recent Ashes series and last year’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup were exceptional. Stokes will be eager to lead England to another World Cup title. Given the small boundaries in use during the World Cup, Stokes, who scored five half-centuries in the last World Cup, is expected to replicate his 2019 heroics.


Despite their inconsistent performance in 50-over cricket since their 2019 triumph, England’s recent form and their victory in last year’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia should boost their confidence. Key players like Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, and Moeen Ali have been in good form, and if the team can quickly adapt to the Indian conditions, they have a strong chance of reaching at least the semi-finals and possibly clinching back-to-back titles.
