4. Sri Lanka and Windies to slump further
Two sides loved beyond boundaries in the cricketing world – Sri Lanka and Windies are no longer the force they once were. Their future doesn’t look very bright either and there are some serious concerns being raised by fans over their performance in the championship.
Windies struggle in the 50-over format commence almost a decade ago but Sri Lanka had a fairly decent tournament in the previous edition. The departure of some senior cricketers and inability to cope with the transition intricacies led to their downfall and they are heading into the tournament with a horrible record behind them in the last two years.
In case of Australia, there is some optimism attached to their future but things don’t appear quite bright for these two sides. It seems fairly likely that they will finish in the bottom four or maybe worse, bottom two. The world would want this prediction to not come true, but it is difficult to see them get any good result in the tournament.
