The Men’s ODI Cricket World Cup takes place in England this year and begins as soon as May 30th!
I’ll be going to see Afghanistan take on both Pakistan and West Indies at Headingley. I’m particularly looking forward to seeing Afghanistan opening batsman Hazratullah Zazai in operation. West Indies batsman Shimron Hetmyer could excite too as could South Africa’s Rassie van der Dussen. I’d also like to see how Australian left-armer Jason Behrendorff performs at international level, that’s if he can get in the team either ahed of or alongside senior left-arm quick Mitchell Starc.
It’s a great shame that there are only ten teams participating in a World Cup but given that that’s how many are, the league format where everybody plays each other once is fair enough.
Of course there is one big question that remains unanswered… will this man be there and wearing that shirt?!
