A big tournament in the next two months
Hosts India will be one of the favourites to lift the trophy. In the last three editions, it was the host nation that went on to win the tournament. India is also in good form right now. While the team won the Asia Cup, they also defeated Australia in the recent ODI series. Barring the injury to Axar Patel, the team does not have a lot of problems. Hence, they will be one of the favourites for the title.
That said, defending champions England will surely be in the mix to win the trophy, too. Despite a few injury setbacks, the core of the team is intact and they are also in good form. England has always had good depth in both departments. It is the same in the current squad. The backups are also good and if the team can play to its potential, it would be really hard to defeat the Three Lions.
