The biggest cricket season is just about to start in ten days. The long wait is over, and the first match of the ODI World Cup 2023 will start on October 5 between England and New Zealand. The warmup matches will kick off on September 29.
With all ten teams playing two warmup games to prepare for the mega event. The World Cup in India will see all the biggest names in this game, representing their countries on the biggest stage. The likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Babar Azam, Jos Buttler, David Warner, Ben Stokes, Kane Williamson, Steve Smith, and many more batting superstars will showcase their skills.
The pitches in India help the batters a lot, so it will be fascinating to see which batter will stand out in this tough competition. Many former cricketers have predicted their teams might end up winning or being in the top four.
However, former South African star AB de Villiers picks a batter who will be scoring tons of runs in the coming tournament. In a video uploaded on his YouTube channel, De Villiers named India’s young opener Shubman Gill to score the most runs in the coming tournament.
De Villiers said, “His technique and style are quite simple and basic, generally what you say about some of the best players in the world.” He stated that Gill plays traditional cricket, does not experience so much, and changes gears when required.
Gill has been in phenomenal form this year. He is the leading scorer in ODIs in 2023 and has already scored five centuries. In India, during the IPL 2023, he was the highest scorer as well. With the form he is in, there will be no doubt if he finishes the World Cup 2023 as the highest run scorer in the end. But the competition is very tough, with some other superstars in line.
