NEW DELHI: Former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar believes England have a very good chance to win the 50-over World Cup.
“If you go by the history of last two or three World Cups, in 2011 the host nation India won, in 2015 host nation Australia won. In 2019, there is a very good chance that England will win the World Cup,” Gavaskar said at the British High Commissioner’s residence on Tuesday.
Gavaskar, however, pointed out that he is not saying England will win the 50-over tournament. “There is a very good chance they (England) will win the World Cup,” he said.
The much-awaited World Cup is scheduled to take place from May 30 to July 14.
