South Africa will be one of the most underrated teams in the world Cup.

England will play with one of the best opening pairs in the world cup. Captain Jos Buttler with Alex Hales or Phil Salt can tear apart any bowling line-up. For No.3 Dawid Malan who is also a left-handed batsman will play a very important role for England.

Rizwan is ranked No.1 T20I batsman at the moment whereas Babar is at No.3. problems for Pakistan start from No.3 but they have some exceptional talent there with Fakhar Zaman, Shan Masood, and Haider Ali.
India’s batting line-up is probably the strongest in the world cup 2022. Their top order comprises of very big names of the captain and star opener, Rohit Sharma. Talented and skillful full player KL Rahul and at No.3 they have king himself, Virat Kohli. Virat is back in form and he will be a problem for other teams in the world cup.
