ODI World Cup 2023: Eoin Morgan, the captain of England when they won the ODI World Cup, has made a bold statement about who will win the ODI World Cup this year. He has named four teams as the favorites. The 36-year-old put India and Pakistan on his list of pre-tournament favorites, along with Ashes rivals England and Australia. However, he didn’t include New Zealand, which came in second place in the last two tournaments.
Eoin Morgan’s Predictions and Favorites for World Cup 2023
In just over two months, the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023 will begin. There will be a total of 48 games between the 10 teams, which will take place in 10 different places in India. Before the start of the 13th edition of the men’s 50-over megaevent, the former captain of the England men’s cricket team, Eoin Morgan, who is the only Englishman to win the ODI World Cup as captain, made his predictions about the tournament and picked his four favorites to win the title.
On his list of pre-tournament favorites, he has teams like India and Pakistan, which have won the event before, as well as Ashes rivals England and Australia. However, he has left New Zealand off the list, which is surprising. The Black Caps made it to the finals of the ODI World Cup in 2015 and 2019. In 2007 and 2011, they made it to the playoffs.
“When the tournament gets down to the wire, I have no question that both England and India will still be there. When asked to name four teams he thought would win, the 36-year-old told WION that he thought Australia and Pakistan had a good chance as well. “Those are two very strong teams that usually do well in big tournaments,” he said.
Eoin Morgan’s Take on India’s Prospects in World Cup 2023
“They have a lot of good things going for them. When you play cricket in India, especially in the 50-over version, you need to cover all your bases, and I think those teams do,” he said.
When asked about India’s chances in the mega event, the left-handed hitter who changed how England played white-ball cricket was very complimentary of the hosts and said that the Men in Blue will be the favorites.
“They have a great cricket team, and I think they’ll be the favorites at the World Cup. You don’t have to go back that far to remember when MS Dhoni was a captain in 2011 and when he hit that ball over long-on for six and India won the trophy. It was a magical time for all Indian fans.

“Home advantage is pretty important, but if you had to give advice, you would say to talk to the people who were there and were in charge during that trip and learn from them. Virat Kohli and others like him have been on that team and know what it’s like. “I’m looking forward to it because it’s going to be a great tournament,” said Morgan.
