The upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 in England and Wales is only five days away, and the cricket lovers are eagerly waiting for the biggest cricketing extravaganza to kickoff. The upcoming marquee event will witness a lot of run being scored as England have produced flat wickets in recent times.
World Cup to commence from May 30
The recent series between Pakistan and England saw the scoreboard crossing the 300-run mark in each and every game. The batsmen will make a merry of the conditions on offer and break as many records as possible, giving a tough time to the bowlers.
Since the last World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, we have witnessed many batters coming to the scene and making a mark. While many faded away, few showed their consistency and impressed with their ability to score big and lead the team. Moreover, many young cricketers have also made their debut and showed signs to make the upcoming showpiece event their own.
On that context, let us take a look at the top five batsmen to watch out in the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019:
England have witnessed a transition in their style of play since their ouster from the group stages in the 2015 World Cup. The team under the leadership of Eoin Morgan played an aggressive brand of cricket, and Jason Roy is an important stakeholder in that line-up.
In the last four years, Roy has scored the third most runs for England after Joe Root and Eoin Morgan. The hard-hitting opener amassed 2938 runs from 76 matches with the highest score of 180 and at a healthy average of over 40.
A complete teamman, Roy will look to continue his exploits at the top of the order for England when they begin their tournament from May 30 against South Africa.
