England

The hosts England start the tournament as favourites to win the trophy. England have never won a 50-over World Cup and this is considered by many, their best chance to lift the trophy. The Eoin Morgan-led England made a bold

move to select Barbados-born Jofra Archer in the side. England have played a different brand of cricket in the past few years. Morgan's brigade has plenty of big-hitters in their side and are most likely to register their first 400-plus score in World Cup fixtures.
