The Guardian’s cricket correspondents Mike Selvey, Russell Jackson, Barney Ronay, Andy Bull, and Dileep Premachandran all seem to chant in unison that Australia has a good chance of winning the 2015 Cricket World Cup. Australia has played the most final matches since the inaugural tournament in 2010. Australia also boasts the most number of wins in the Cricket World Cup with four (1987, 1999, 2003, and 2007).
