Since his debut in 2003, Michael Clarke has been Australia’s most reliable batsman in tests as well as ODIs. In the mega event of the game Australian team will play around him provided that he is fit. He has helped the team win World Cup in the past.
The most prolific young cricketer in the world Virat Kohli will be one of the key players for the team India during the World Cup 2015 if they were to defend the title. Kohli has played the 2011 world cup, where he was a young player but in this tournament he will be the back bone of Indian batting.
If New Zealand, co-host of the event, hope to gain the world cup Kane Williamson has to perform. He will be expected to play the anchoring role and stay there for as many overs as possible.

Kumar Sangakkara is one of the modern legends of the game.

The rate at which Hashim Amla has accumulated ODI runs is the fastest in history. He opens for South Africa in ODI and often provides a solid stage for the likes of AB de Villiers to fire quick knocks. He is in the pink patch of his form and will try his best to help the Protaes to remove the tag of chokers.
The West Indian team is full of hard hitters like Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy and Marlon Samuels. The role of Darren Bravo in this team will be “the sheet anchor” and “to stay till the end”.
