Champions trophy time!

Now the question on everybody’s lips are who is going to win the champions trophy? Now the Premier League is over we can turn to other major sporting events.

            The favourites, England? A great series win over South Africa have put England into a great position heading into the tournament. Also with the “easier” of the groups there is no reason why they can’t do it. Though England’s performance in the last ODI was poor, I see no reason why they can’t dominate. But the warm up games bring the major question if Roy should be in the side? A standout performance from Bairstow could give him the spot he deserves.

            Another team in England’s group are Australia, a great playing side and there is no doubt that they can win this. Pats Cummings is on top form and Warner, Stoinis and other players are playing some of their best cricket. So, Australia could absolutely boss this tournament.

            Though South Africa lost the recent series against England was poor they are still the number one team in the world and their performance in the last match was simply brilliant. They have the top run scorer in ODI history (Amla) the number one bowler in Imran Tahir and are looking a very strong unit.

            India! India! India! The most exciting team in the world? Virat Kohli, M.S Dhoni. They won last time and now their teams are looking better than ever. If they win I think it is confirmed that they may be the best team in the world.

            Now to the dark horse, I am going for the West Indies. Oh no they aren’t in the tournament ok, um well that was my pick. Ok my surprise package will be Sri Lanka though they have not got a great team look out for them.

            To conclude, England are going to have a great shot at winning this. So let’s see what happens!!
