Have a look what the 10 Incredible captains have to say about ICC World Cup 2019

Eoin Morgan (England):

“It would be extremely cool if we could reach the final. Every captain would lose a left leg to do it. I grew up dreaming of playing Test cricket or scoring the winning runs in a World Cup.”

Aaron Finch (Australia):

“England has been in great form and along with India are probably the stand out performers. So England in home conditions are definitely the favorites.”

Sarfaraz Khan (Pakistan):

“Pakistan does very well in England traditionally, so we are confident of doing well again.”

Virat Kohli (India):

“At a World Cup, things are totally different. As the tournament goes on, scoring will become harder and pitches will deteriorate.”

Dimuth Karunaratne (Sri Lanka):

“It is very exciting to be playing in a World Cup. There have always been mind games at World Cups – but we will be trying to do our best and are feeling confident.”

Faf Du Plessis (South Africa):

“I think bowlers will win this tournament. Batters will score runs on good wickets, so the team towards the end will be the team that will have done well with the ball.”

Gulbadin Naib (Afghanistan):

“We have peace in Afghanistan now and cricket is a huge part of that. We are very happy and hopefully, that can help us produce good performances – we’re really excited to be here.”

Kane Williamson (New Zealand):

“There has been a lot of talk around rankings, favorites, and underdogs. But all the teams are balanced – on the day anything can happen, which should mean some very exciting cricket.”

Jason Holder (West Indies):

“To play every side is great for us. We worked hard with the qualifiers to get here, that means it is the top 10 in the world, we want to play them all and give ourselves a shot. The team that wins will definitely deserve it.”

Mashrafe Mortaza (Bangladesh):

“We have a great team mix, probably as good as we have ever had. We have some young players coming through and we are very excited about them.”
