The ICC World Cup 2019 is anticipated to be dominated by the batsmen. The English pitches will be dry and flat and thus the batters will be licking their lips. The World-class teams will lock horns with each other and it one who would keep their calm in the tensed situations will have the wood on the other teams. Meanwhile, the batsmen will like to make the most of the batting friendly pitches.
In fact, we have seen that the scores of above 325 have been a norm on the England pitches in the last four years. Hence, the batsmen could have a merry time in the upcoming World Cup.
