The cricketing marvel will be back after four years to treat the fraternity and leave behind some remarkable moments. The Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played in England and Wales and will see ten teams competing hard to lift the trophy. Every single team will have its eyes on the silverware and will hope to settle for nothing less than emerging as the world leaders. Each of these ten teams has got its own sets of strengths and weaknesses.
The task will be to balance out these deficiencies on such a big stage so as to emerge victoriously. Here is where the role of the marquee player in the side arises. The teams will be having great expectations from one of their players and will expect a lot of deliverables from that person. He could potentially end up being the difference between two sides on a given day and thus will be regarded as the strongest player of his team.
Here is the strongest player of each team ahead of World Cup 2019:
1. Shai Hope | Windies
The 25-year-old cricketer from Barbados will be a crucial part of Windies’ plans at the mega-event. Shai Hope, with his brilliant temperament and technique, has escalated up the ranks quite quickly. He is currently the ICC’s No.7 ODI batsman and one of the most consistent performers for the Windies.
In the 44 ODIs that he played, Hope scored 1,726 runs at an impressive average of 47. He will be expected to scale up this consistency factor and register huge scores at the World Cup. Hope will indeed be the biggest hope of the Caribbean team going forward.
