Sri Lanka Cricket legend Kumar Sangakkara has suggested that England and India are top favorites to win the ODI World Cup to be played in India starting next month.

Sangakkara expressed these views speaking during a post-match discussion in England where he is currently on duty as a commentator for Sky Sports.

Commenting on Sri Lanka’s recent performances in the ongoing Asia Cup tournament, he said that they could be challenging for a playoff position in the World Cup.

“I saw Sri Lanka play in the last game and how they played through the Asia Cup. In big tournaments Sri Lanka does very well. So they could be challenging for a playoff position” he said.

“Once you are in the playoffs your are just a game away, you have a good day and you are in the Final” Sangakkara went on to say. (NewsWire )
