West Indies and England, two of the most unpredictable sides in World Cricket will kick start their World Cup campaign today.
They will lock horns in a warm up match which will begin at 09.00 AM in SCG Sydney.
England is the nation which introduced Cricket to the whole world. But the European nation is yet to win a World Cup, and they used to play in a pathetic manner in tournaments even with an abundance of talents.
This time, the English team under the leadership of Eoin Morgan is game for any game, and they will try their best to erase the misfortune in World Cups.
The English team has left out their long time Captain Alistair Cook while they start the proceedings for World Cup 2015. They also said Adios to Kevin Peterson who is considered as one of the big names in International Cricket.
The match will be live telecast in six languages in India. Apart from the telecast on leading Sports channels like, Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 3, Star Sports 4 and Star Sports HD1, the matches will be shown live in regional channels like Asianet Plus (Malayalam), Suvarna Plus (Kannada), Star Vijay (Tamil) and Jalsha Movies (Bengali).
Doordarshan will be telecasting all matches live for the people in India. PTV Sports and Ten Sports will telecast the match in Pakistan. People in England, Wales, Scotland and Republic of Ireland can watch the match in Sky Sports. The matches will be shown in Caribbean through ESPN.
The live streaming can be watched on Star Sports website here.
The bowling attack led by James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Steven Finn is the major strength of the English team. The services of Chris Jordan and Ravi Bopara will also prove valuable for the side during many occasions.
Eoin Morgan is a very good leader, and we have witnessed his skills and mettle during the recently concluded tri nation series which participated India, Australia and England.
On the other hand, West Indies Cricket team is one of the most inexperienced sides which will play in this World Cup.
The selectors have not picked key players like Dwayne Bravo, Keiron Pollard and Sunil Naraine in the side, and this may negatively impact their World Cup dreams.
Darren Sammy and Andre Russel are the key players in the West Indian side, and their form will play a crucial role in determining West Indies’ fate in the tournament.
With players like Chris Gayle, Dwayne Smith, Marlon Samuels, Andre Russel and Darren Sammy in the line up, the West Indies team has the capability to chase down any mammoth total in quick time.
The bowling attack of West Indies looks inexperienced. Kemar Roach, Jerome Taylor and Suliemaan Benn are not reliable to an extent, and this is one of the major concerns for the Caribbeans.
