The 2023 Cricket World Cup is due to be played in India are will provide all fans with the chance to travel to the cricket-mad country to enjoy a festival of cricket.
England are the reigning champions after their 2019 World Cup triumph on their own turf. Eoin Morgan's side were the best team across the competition and proved that by winning the whole thing, beating Australia in the semi-finals before then ousting New Zealand in the final.
The final itself was hardly straightforward though. England were set a challenging 242 for victory on a pitch that proved very tough to score on. Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler came to England's rescue with the bat, forcing the game into a super over after battling to 241 all out.
The super over eventually saw Jason Roy's throw taken by Buttler who ran Martin Guptill out to spark jubilant celebrations from the England fans and snatch the World Cup away from New Zealand in the cruellest way possible.
This time, England will be hoping for a more straightforward route to the trophy, although they will have to defeat some truly world-class teams along the way if they are to do so.
India are the current favourites to win the competition on their own patch at $3.40 (bet365).
Holders England are $4.00, with Australia ($4.50) and New Zealand ($8.00) rounding off the favourites.
From there, you can look to back the likes of Pakistan ($9.00), South Africa ($10.00), West Indies ($15.00), Sri Lanka ($19.00) and Bangladesh ($26.00)
In this tournament in India, sides that can play spin well and can field world-class spin bowlers will likely excel. Perhaps this is why India are the favourites above England, with the English historically having trouble playing spin.
Any of India, England, Australia and New Zealand constitute a good bet, while Pakistan should not be discounted as they would love to win the World Cup on their rival's home patch.
This sort of betting will usually offer the most value if you are able to bet in advance before a ball has been bowled.
However, you can also wait until the competition has started, as this could provide better odds on a current favourite winning if they are the victim of a poor start.
