Which nation will win the Cricket World Cup 2019?

I have seen some betting sites counting on a final between England and India. In general, England might be the biggest favorites ahead of the tournament, but a lot of people count on both India and Australia to give the Brits a hard fight for the trophy.

The nations expected to perform poorly during the tournament are Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Sri Lanka. But, we have seen it before that smaller nations are capable of surprising during such large tournaments, so it will be interesting to see what will happen during the Cricket World Cup in 2019.
