Notably, the Windies will not participate in the 2023 tournament as they were eliminated in the qualifying stage.

Cricket World Cup 2023 Predictions and Odds The 2023 Cricket World Cup promises fierce competition. India, backed by a passionate home crowd and led by Rohit Sharma, stands as the favorites to secure their third overall title.

Defending champions England, bolstered by the return of Ben Stokes, are strong contenders to retain the ODI World Cup trophy they won four years ago.

New Zealand, despite their heartbreaking loss to England in the previous final, remains a top pick to break their trophy drought, especially if captain Kane Williamson’s fitness remains optimal.

Australia, under the leadership of Pat Cummins, carries momentum from their recent successes and could add the ODI World Cup to their accolades.

Sri Lanka, although having to qualify through the playoffs, could be a surprise package, given their recent performance in the Asia Cup.

A high-stakes clash between India and Pakistan on October 14 promises to be a tournament highlight, with Pakistan aiming to replicate their past success.

While South Africa faces a competitive field, Bangladesh and Afghanistan show potential for upsets. However, winning the tournament outright seems challenging for them.

Netherlands, a surprise qualifier, achieving any form of victory in the ODI Cricket World Cup would be a remarkable accomplishment, considering their journey via the playoff stage.

It’s worth noting that Netherlands winning the entire tournament would rank as one of the greatest sporting shocks in history!
