The world cup 2023 is almost a month away; it will begin on the 5th of October; it’s a competition amongst ten teams; the veteran Sourav Ganguly recently revealed the top 5 teams that, in his opinion, could lift the World Cup trophy this year.
The first match is going to be a clash between New Zealand and the defending champions, England. These are the ten teams that will be playing in the world cup 2023, hosted by India: Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, New Zealand, England, Australia, Bangladesh, Netherlands, South Africa and Sri Lanka.
World Cup 2019 was one of the best world cups in the history of the sport, especially the final match between New Zealand and England that led to a dramatic super over. Watch the match highlights below:

In a recent interview, Sourav Ganguly shared his thoughts on which teams could most likely win the world cup and spoke about Team India’s batting unit.
In no time, we will find out how accurate Sourav Ganguly’s predictions are. “I presume Australia will be one, England, Pakistan, and don’t rule New Zealand out… But if you ask me my best 5 at the moment, it’s Australia, England, New Zealand, India, and Pakistan,” Ganguly said, as quoted by crickettimes.com.“Who said we don’t have a No 4? We have so many (batsmen) who can bat at that spot.
Ganguly further said: I think differently; my mindset is different. This is a fantastic side. I see Tilak Varma as an option, being a left-hander”. “It has to be a team of experience and people who don’t have any scars — like Jaiswal, Varma, Ishan Kishan.
They can go and play fearless cricket. Rahul (Dravid), Rohit and the selectors have plenty of choices; they just have to identify and pick the best XI”.
