Former left-arm pacer Irfan Pathan has chosen hosts India as his favourites for the 2023 Men’s ODI World Cup title. Legendary India batter Sunil Gavaskar has picked defending champions England as his favourites for the title. Both India and England will be facing off in their first warm-up game at Barsapara Cricket Ground in Guwahati on Saturday.
“I'm very excited to see how India performs and I really think they are one of the favorites, for sure because especially last couple of series, like Asia Cup, and the way India played against Australia as well in the home conditions. I think they are ticking all the boxes.”
