It will be Bangladesh's first time co-hosting a Cricket World Cup.
The World Cup will use cricket’s One Day International format, with fourteen national cricket teams scheduled to compete.
Even though Pakistan had won an One Day International series against New Zealand but their past two years performance is full if disappointments and off-field dramas.
But then again, as everybody knows that Pakistan has capability of doing wonders at times when no one is actually expecting.
Next favorite team is India, India has a great season following their past series and they did pretty good against South Africa who was also dominant over Pakistan.
The world cup pattern and pitch conditions will favor India a lot, and predictions says that India will at least qualify for the Semi-Final.
They were top notch team during the world cup 99 and many people thought that if they will defeat Australia then defeating Pakistan at the final would be easy for them (as Pakistan face difficulties when facing South Africa).
But this time all the players of South Africa are committed and willing to not to take any sort of pressure or whatsoever. Pakistan is not a favorite team this time except for the fans of Pakistan (that too are not in large quantity).
In that regard they have nothing to lose, or nothing except a nation's foolishly attached pride.
India's strength lies in the depth and vigour of their batting.
