Today Match Prediction Who Will Win World Cup Match 1 Report: England vs South Africa, The Oval – (Thursday, 30 May 2019)

The first match of the cricket world cup will be played between South Africa and the host England, in the Oval Stadium. The day match will start at 10:30 BST and 11:30 am (South Africa Time) on Thursday, 30 May.

England Vs South Africa

The weather is 16° – with clouds and breaks of sun and a couple of showers late in the day. The moisture during the second innings of the match can create problems both for the batting and fielding sides.

It will be a tough match between the two strongest teams of the season, both having a number of top order batsmen and strong bowling attack. A target of 280-300 runs would be strong and can create some trouble for the team batting in the second innings.

The Oval cricket ground pitch on the day of the world cup match between ENG vs RSA will be dry and flat. The pitch can offer good bounce and pace to the fast or medium-fast bowlers. For batsmen, the pitch can offer some really cracking shots and boundaries, but be prepared to defend that extra bounce and pace from the fast bowlers.

The first Cricket World Cup match between England and South Africa will be largely dependent on the fast or medium-fast bowlers of both the teams. A ball delivered with good pace can create troubles for the batsmen.

The pace from England bowlers – David Willey, Mark Wood, Tom Curran – and the amazing bouncers from Jake Ball can send batsmen back to the pavilion. South African bowlers, especially Morne Morkel, Andile Phehlukwayo, and Kagiso Rabada can do great wonders for their team.

As far batting is concerned, both the teams have top-class batsmen, and their batting line-up goes straight to the 6th 7th spots. If played with the best timing and understanding the dynamics of the bowling attack, scoring more than a half-century on this flat dry pitch is possible.

According to the prediction calculator, England has better chances of winning the game – all thanks to their pace bowlers. But South Africa can dominate if they work according to the team plan and defend those bouncers, yorkers, and pace bowling by the English bowlers.

Today Match Prediction Who Will Win World Cup Match 2 Report: West Indies vs Pakistan, Trent Bridge (Friday, 31 May 2019)

The second match of ICC Cricket World Cup will be played between Pakistan and West Indies, in the Trent Bridge stadium. The day match will start at 10:30 (BST), 02:30 pm (Pakistan Standard Time), and 3:30 pm (Barbados WI time).

West indies Vs Pakistan

As per cricket world cup match weather forecast, it will be cloudy weather with a couple of showers and thunderstorms after late evening.

The ground pitch is dry with a few cracks on it and team bowling first can gain a good advantage of this. Top fast bowlers with good pace and bounce, especially from the Pakistani team such as Hasan Ali, Muhammad Aamir,  M.Husnain, Shaheen Afridi, and Usman Shinwari can give a tough time to the West Indies batsmen.

The batsmen have to play shots with the right timing and proper shot selection, and the key to maintaining a long batting partnership is possible if you can defend those bouncers and pace attack from the bowlers.

According to the prediction calculator, Pakistan has more chances of winning the game against West Indies – all thanks to the Pak fast bowlers like Aamir, Junaid, and Shaheen. On the other hand, West Indies don’t have that type of unique bowling attack suited for this type of pitch, so they have to show some good hitting skills to have any chances of grabbing the winner spot. However, the rain can bring a huge effect on the results of both the teams!

Today Match Prediction Who Will Win World Cup Match 3 Report: New Zealand vs Sri Lanka, Sophia Gardens Cardiff (Saturday, 1st June 2019)

The third match of the ICC Cricket World Cup will be played between SRI vs NZ, in the Sophia Gardens Cardiff stadium. The match will start at 10:30 (BST), 3:30 pm (Sri Lanka Time), and 9:30 pm (New Zealand Time).

The Cardiff ground pitch report for this cricket world cup match, tells that the pitch is best suited to fast bowlers who have got a good pace and that extra line of length. Three to four top fast bowlers can turn moments in favor of their teams. The batsmen have to avoid those silly shots and do the best timings on the pace and bounce.

According to world cup prediction analysis of NZ vs SRI, New Zealand has more chances of winning the match – thanks to its fast bowlers like Trent Boult, Tim Southee, and Matt Henry who are a perfect combination of pace and bounce for this type of pitch and ground. Since Sri Lanka don’t have that lot of fast bowlers except Thisara Perera, the only way for them to win the match is performing good in batting and setting a target anywhere above 280.

Today Match Prediction Who Will Win World Cup Match 4 Report: Afghanistan vs Australia, County Ground – (Saturday, 1st June 2019)

The fourth match of the cricket world cup will be played between Afghanistan and the defending champion Australia, in the County Ground Bristol Stadium. The match which is scheduled to take place on 1st June 2019, will start at 13:30 (BST), 5:00 pm (Afghanistan time), and 10:30 pm (Australia Time).

Afghanistan Vs Australia

The 20° warm and pleasant weather with intervals of clouds and sunshine, make the day perfect for a cricket match.

The ground pitch report indicates that a dry and flat pitch is best suited to the fast bowlers of the Australian cricket team. Australian bowlers like Marcus Stoinis, Kane Richardson, and Shaun Marsh can all bowl brilliantly well on this type of pitch – giving a tough time to the opposition.

According to prediction analysis, Australia has more chances of winning the game. The major disadvantage that Afghanistan may face on this patch, is the lack of fast bowlers with bounce and pace.

Today Match Prediction Who Will Win World Cup Match 5 Report: South Africa vs Bangladesh, The Oval – (Sunday, 2 June 2019)

The fifth match of the ICC CWC 2019 will be played between SA vs BAN, in the Oval Stadium. The match is scheduled to be played on June 2 at 10:30 (BST), 11:30 am (South Africa Time), 3:30 pm (Bangladesh Time).

South Africa Vs Bangladesh

The ground pitch will be dry and level. The pitch can offer great pace to the fast or medium bowlers. For batsmen, the pitch can offer some truly breaking shots and limits, however, be set up to safeguard that additional bounce and pace from the bowlers.

According to a prediction analysis of the world cup match between SA and BAN, there are more winning votes in favor of South Africa. This is because South Africa’s bowling and batting attack are superior to Bangladesh. However, if top Bangladeshi fast bowlers like Rubel Hussain, Mustafizur Rahman, and Taskin Ahmed manage to send top South African batsmen like Hashim Amla, Faf Du Plessis, and Quinto De Kock back to the pavilion in the first 20 overs of the match, then the game can possibly turn in favor of Bangladesh.

Today Match Prediction Who Will Win World Cup Match 6 Report: England vs Pakistan, Trent Bridge – (Monday, 3 June 2019)

The sixth match of the CWC 2019 will be played between Pakistan and the tournament host England. The match will take place in Trent Bridge Stadium, at 10:30 (BST) or 02:30 pm (Pakistan Standard Time).

England Vs Pakistan

The pitch ground report tells that the pitch may absorb in the moisture from the rainy weather, and make things difficult for both the teams. Batting and bowling would be a real struggle, and the team which delivers the best attack in such weather conditions have the most chances of winning.

According to cricket world cup prediction analysis of the match between ENG and PAK, there’s no favorite time. Both teams have top-class fast bowlers and batsmen, the pace of Hasan Ali and Muhammad Amir, that extra-ordinary bowl from Mark Wood and Tom Curren, those classy shots by Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman, and those handsome boundaries by Jos Buttler and defensive batting by Moeen Ali – make both these teams equal to each other in regards of the pitch and weather conditions.
