The cricket world cup started with hosts England thumping South Africa in world cup opener with a massive margin of 104 runs to start their world cup campaign on a high. The world cup got underway on May 30 and will conclude on July 14, with the finals at the iconic Lord’s in London.

England are the firm favourites to lift the trophy, however some experts claim India to be a force to reckon with alongside Australia who are high in confidence after pipping India 3-2 in India and clean sweeping Pakistan 5-0 in United Arab Emirates(UAE). The returning Steve Smith and David Warner will add more strength to the team.

Murali Kartik predicts the semi-finalists

The former India spinner predicted that his top three pick are number one ranked side in the world- England, number two ranked team in the world- India and defending champions Australia.

For the remaining fourth spot, the Chennai born bowler picked 2015 finalists New Zealand and an unpredictable West Indies who pipped a much fancied Pakistan in their world cup opener in Nottingham and won the game by 7 wickets. Windies bowlers striked when it mattered the most and as a result Pakistan got bundled out on 105 runs in the first innings.
