NEW DELHI: The former India captain, who led the team to the 2003 World Cup finals expects that current round robin format will be one of the most “keenly contested” tournament.
“My pick for the four semifinalists spot would be India, Australia, England and Pakistan. India are one of the title-contenders of course,” Ganguly told PTI in an interview.
Ten teams will be competing in the ODI cricket’s quadrennial extravaganza in a round robin format where every team plays each other before the semifinals.
“It’s going to be one of the most keenly contested World Cups. Indian team is so strong that in any tournament they will be favourites. This World Cup will probably be the best format. The best four teams will reach the semi-finals playing all the teams. There are no easy teams,” said Ganguly.
