The most successful bowler of the World Cup, Glenn McGrath, has picked his top 3 teams for the World Cup 2019.
In a post on Instagram, Glenn Mcgrath predicted that the England team has the best chance to win the World Cup.
McGrath also stated that team India also plays a similar brand of cricket and have equal chances to win. He couldn’t hide his biasedness by picking Australia as the third team to win the World Cup.
Though Australia won against India and Pakistan in their last 2 bilateral ODI series but picking them ahead of New Zealand and South Africa is a bit surprising as both the teams are ahead of Australia in ICC ODI Rankings.
Australia has won 5 World Cup titles whereas England, New Zealand and South Africa have won none.

Looking forward to the 2019 Cricket World Cup starting on May 30. My 3 top teams are England, India & of course Australia. As much as it kills me to say, @englandcricket are the favourites, they’ve got a good team & play a great brand of quality, aggressive ODI cricket. @indiancricketteam play a similar style of cricket but how will they go on UK wickets? Australia, well they’re peaking at the right time. With wins against India in India & Pakistan in the UAE their confidence will be up plus the added boost of having @steve_smith49 & @davidwarner31 back. I think the Aussies can lift the cup again but the English are going to be tough to beat #cricketworldcup2019
McGrath has won 3 World Cups (1999, 2003 & 2007) and dismissed 71 batsmen, which is the most by any bowler in World Cup history.
