Top 4 Strongest Contenders to win world cup 2015
The defending champion India is one of the strongest sides of ICC world cup 2015 which can win the title for the third time. India had won cricket world cups in 1983 and 2011. The key factor with team India is that they know how to play big events and handle pressure on big occasions. MS Dhoni’s leadership is helpful for Indian cricket team in the 50-over format of game.
Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Ravichandran Ashwin and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are some of the key players in Indian squad who can help India to lift 2015 world cup.
New Zealand cricket team is waiting for first world cup trophy since 1975 as they never won single world cup title. Kiwi team never appeared in a world cup final even though they played six world cup semi-finals. This is the perfect occasion for NZ as they are hosting the world cup and they’ll have great home crowd support.
Kane Williamson, Martin Guptil, Ross Taylor, Brendon McCullum, Corey Anderson, Tim Southee and Mitch McClenaghan are some of the key players in New Zealand 15-man squad who can win maiden world cup title for nation in 2015.

They always have been a strong side and contenders to win major cricketing events like world cup. Australia had won world cups in 1987, 1999, 2003 and 2007. The chances for Australia to win 2015 world cup becomes more brighter when they are playing the tournament in their home conditions.
David Warner, Mitchell Johnson, Glenn Maxwell, George Bailey, Michael Clarke, are some of the key players in Australian 15-man squad who can win world cup 2015 for the country.
One of the biggest candidates to win 2015 cricket world cup is South Africa team. Proteas side always been strong side in cricket world but being strong doesn’t mean you win always.
