ICC World Cup 2023: As cricket fans get ready for the highly anticipated ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023, former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag has given his opinions for which teams will make it to the tournament’s semi-finals. Fans and professionals alike are interested in Sehwag’s predictions because he was known for his fearless batting when he was a player.
What Sehwag Said About Semi-Finalist of World Cup 2023?
“If I have to pick four teams – Australia, England, India and Pakistan. These are the semi-finalists. Australia and England will surely be there because the kind of cricket they are playing – they don’t play conventional shots, only unconventional – these 2 teams are pretty good at it. Also, England and Australia are the two away teams who can play better cricketer in the sub-continent.”
Let’s take a closer look at Sehwag’s choices for the four possible semi-finalists:
India: A Formidable Contender
In the last few years, India has become a giant in cricket thanks to Rohit Sharma. India is likely to win the World Cup because they have a strong mix of powerful batting and a well-balanced bowling attack. Their track record and consistent results make them a strong contender to make it to the semi-finals.
England: Reigning Champions Eyeing Glory
England is the current ODI world winner, and they are ready to defend their title in Asia. England has a big advantage because they play a fast and aggressive type of cricket, have a deep batting lineup, and play at home. They are likely to make it to the semi-finals because they can go after big goals and have won before when the stakes were high.
Australia: The Perennial Powerhouse
Australia has a long past of being good at cricket, so people expect them to show off their skills at the CWC 2023. The Australian team has a lot of good players who can both hit the ball and throw it. They have a good track record in big tournaments and know how to do well when the heat is on. This makes them a strong candidate to make it to the semi-finals.
Pakistan: The Dark Horse
Pakistan is a team that shouldn’t be taken lightly because they are used to being the underdog and always do well in ICC games. The Men in Green, led by the smart Babar Azam, have done well in limited-overs cricket in the past. Their ability to work as a team, be disciplined, and make the most of key times could get them into the semi-finals.
Fans of cricket are looking forward to the 2023 World Cup, and Sehwag’s statements have made them even more excited. From what he knows, India, England, Australia, and Pakistan are likely to be in the semi-finals. With a strong mix of ability, experience, and drive, these teams are expected to put on exciting shows and compete for the highest honor in cricket. On October 5, when the event starts, cricket fans will be paying close attention to see if Sehwag’s predictions match up with what happens on the field.

Why Rohit Sharma Will Be Under Pressure in ICC ODI World Cup 2023?
India, which is led by Rohit Sharma, is one of the four teams that the former middle batter has picked. But the Men in Blue will still have to worry about a lot of things since they haven’t won any ICC awards since the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy. India still doesn’t have a trophy after losing to the powerful Australians in the World Test Championship (WTC) 2023 Final by 209 runs.
Aside from the dry time, India has had a lot of problems with people getting hurt. Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul, both of whom have been regular starts for the Men in Blue, are still out with injuries, and there has been no official word about when they will be back. But India’s best fast bowler, Jasprit Bumrah, has started practicing on the pitch and will play in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 and the next game against Ireland. This is good news for Rohit Sharma’s team.
The ICC ODI World Cup 2023 will start on October 5, and India’s first game will be against Australia on October 8. India vs. Pakistan, the most-anticipated game of the event, will be played on October 14 at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
