World Cup 2019: 3 destructive batters to keep an eye on for every team
The highly-anticipated ICC World Cup 2019 is scheduled to commence on 30th May in England and Wales. The type of batting performances the England cricket team has been giving recently shows the kind of conditions which will be on the field in the tournament. In other words, it suggests that it is going to be a run feast this World Cup.
Therefore, the need for destructive, hard-hitting batters has risen at a good rate. Currently, all the participating nations are involved in getting their orders and sequences right and are preparing themselves in the warm-up games to get ready physically and mentally for the upcoming tournament.
In this World Cup, teams would be putting on massive totals on the board because of the flat nature of the English pitches. Thus, almost every team will depend on their power strikers to come and smash from ball number one.
Here's a look at three destructive batsmen to watch out for in the World Cup 2019.
#3 Glenn Maxwell (Australia)
In the past couple of years, we haven't seen the type of Maxwell we are used to but he has had a really good start to 2019. Glenn Maxwell was named as the 'Player of the Series' in the T20I competition against India in India. Ever since scoring an outstanding century against a talented bowling lineup, he has strengthened himself in the Australian cricket team.
'The Big Show' averages just under 40 in English conditions which is pretty decent for a player of his calibre. With a refreshed form, Glenn Maxwell will be Australia’s go-to guy in this year's World Cup.
Glenn Maxwell has always been a power hitter since the start of his international career. Maxi has an enormous strike rate of 120+ in ODIs. His ability and character was never a question, but his consistency with the bat has always raised a few eyebrows.
