Jason picks England as favourites

Former Australia pacer, Jason Gillespie, has stated that England deserve the 'favourite' tag for the ICC World Cup because of their aggressive and dynamic nature.

“There's been a lot of talk of England being favourites and playing at home and I certainly think they deserve that tag. They've played some wonderful 50-over cricket. They've been really innovative and shown a lot of aggression with bat and ball, they've been really dynamic in the field,” Gillespie said.

Although the 43-year-old praised the hosts, he also elucidated that Australia know how to win World Cups.

“Every other team in this World Cup knows that Australia know how to win World Cups. That is something that will be in every other country's mind, that Australia - while they might not be seen as favourites - they know how to win World Cups,” he said.
