A good cricket team strives for success and aims to achieve victories in matches and tournaments. Winning matches not only brings joy to players and fans but also boosts the team's confidence and reputation.
A successful team leaves a lasting impact on the sport and contributes to its legacy. It plays a crucial role in the development and promotion of the sport. Their performances inspire young players, attract new fans, and generate interest and participation in cricket.
The success of a team can lead to increased investments in infrastructure, training facilities, and grassroots programs, which help in nurturing talent and improving the overall standard of the game.
As the new cycle of the World Test Championship has begun with the start of the Ashes, the new season of cricket is also taking its initial steps. The top bookmakers in India have quality cricket odds with them.
In this article, we have compiled a list of 5 teams that entertained cricket fans with their best quality of cricket.
Team India never fails to surprise cricket fans from across the globe. The last season was full of ups and downs off the field but they performed with their best quality of cricket on the ground. They defeated Australia in March and reached the number one rank in the ICC rankings in the Test format.
Since the day Rohit Sharma took over the captaincy of India in 2022, in all the formats of cricket, things have changed completely in the Indian camp. However, their loss in the WTC Final was a major upset but as of now, Men in Blue will be looking forward to a positive start of the new season and maintain a much better quality of cricket.
England has completely reformed their Test cricket and T20 cricket at the international platform. After their loss to Australia in the 2021-23 Ashes, England team management did some major changes in the squad and the combination of Ben Stokes as the leader and Brendon McCullum as the new Test coach, they invented ‘Bazzball’ and played Test cricket with aggression.
England also won the T20 World Cup in 2022 after defeating Pakistan in the final game. Joe Root, Ben Stokes, and captain Jos Buttler have become outstanding performers for the team. However, the real Test for England will be the ODI World Cup and the ongoing Ashes series against Australia.
The Aussies never fail to amuse when it comes to cricket across all formats. They became the World Test Champions by defeating team India in the final game of WTC 2021-23. Before that, Australia defeated South Africa during their tour to South Africa for three-match Test series by 2-0.
After losing out on the T20 World Cup trophy, Australia bounced back against England and defeated the T20 Champions in the ODI format by 3-0 at their home ground. As of now, they are one of the major contenders to lift the ODI World Cup trophy this year.
4) New Zealand
The Kiwis have seen a major dip in their form in recent times. Since their semi-final loss in the T20 World Cup last year, they are witnessing a tough time in international cricket. However, they made headlines by defeating Pakistan in a three-match ODI series by 1-2 while touring Pakistan for a three-match ODI series and a two-match Test series.
However, Pakistan took revenge in May while the team was on their second tour but hopes are still high for the Kiwis for the new season of international cricket.
5) South Africa
The Proteas surprisingly qualified for the ODI World Cup as they were in doubt for the same last year. It has been a year of difficulties for South Africa but with a shift in the leadership in T20 cricket and ODI format, things look positive for South Africa.
Their win over West Indies in the Test format was the highlight of the last season and dismantling India in the same format at the start of 2022 also became the talk of the town.
