  • Strategists who will call the shots this cricket World Cup

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has led India to two World Cup triumphs (T20 in 2007, 50-over in 2011) besides leading Chennai Super Kings to three Indian Premier League titles, is a colossus the team can't do without. After having missed out on selection for the marquee event, Pollard might still find his World Cup dream realised if he is called as a replacement for an injured player.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) have also named a 10-man list of reserve players for the upcoming tournament in England, with the main squad now at a training camp in Southampton where they will be until Thursday. Luckily for them, there have been no injury dramas ahead of the biggest tournament in the world. The list, which was put up on the website of Cricket West Indies (CWI), also included Kieron Pollard, who hasn't played an ODI since October 2016. It was the first time since 1992 that a World Cup final (or a semi-final) did not feature Australia.

The teams that make it past the round robin stage will be awarded a bonus of $100,000 (£78,000/€89,000).

Warner is still one of the most destructive batsmen in the world and he has a good record in ODI cricket, in England.

South Africa will take on hosts England in the opening game of the World Cup on May 30 at Kennington Oval in London.

Imran Tahir will be playing the last World Cup of his career and would be looking to enthrall the audience one last time, with his bowling and celebrations. Faf du Plessis will look to fill the void of A.B.de Villiers in the side and South Africa will look to him both as a batsman and captain who wins his players' trust as much with forthrightness as he does with his decisive leadership and gritty batting skills.

While Pollard has been absent from the ODI team for over two years, he makes sporadic appearances in T20Is for West Indies. When they came here, they had a good series against us. "We thought we had to be more special, we had to do something more than we usually do, and we did not do what was good enough before", Du Plessis was quoted as saying by the ICC".

Uber's campaign "This World Cup, Every Fan Wins" aims to create a culture of togetherness and puts cricket lovers at the heart of the celebration, which includes the World Cup's first and very own anthem - Way-O, Way-O.
