The wait for the much-awaited World Cup 2019 has finally come to an end as it has now been started in England. Hosts England is looking horns with South Africa in the tournament opener at the Oval. But before the start of the mega event, the world was busy predicting which team can go all the way and lift the coveted trophy this summer. Unsurprisingly, most of the fans are backing their own countries to win the trophy.

Keeping up with the trend, veteran cricketers, Yuvraj Singh, Kevin Pietersen, and Graeme Smith were also involved in a small banter on Twitter. It all started when Yuvraj posted the World Cup promo on his Twitter handle and took a dig at England, South Africa for never getting to lift the trophy.

Yuvraj backed India to win the ‘Cricket ka Crown’ aka the World Cup, writing: “There has always been a slip between the ‘cup’ and the lip for #ENG and #SA! Pehla match ye khelenge, but #CricketKaCrown hum #LeJayenge!”

At the end of his tweet, Yuvraj cheekily tagged former England batsman Kevin Pietersen and the latter replied immediately. Pietersen said that he has already seen the commercial before confidently stating that England is going to win the tournament. The former batsman tweeted: “I’ve seen it mate, but we both know #ENG are going all the way and bringing the ???? home! ???? So tell me if I’m saying this right: #CricketKaCrown hum #LeJayenge”

Amidst all that, former South Africa skipper Graeme Smith also showed his loyalty for his country as he backed the Proteas to win their first ever World Cup.

Taking a sly dig at England, and wrote: “Given that the English love tea, only makes sense that we Proteas go for the 🏆, right, @StarSportsIndia? 😉
@KP24, I’ve got your back – here, some ☕ before the action begins!”

England and India are definitely the World Cup favorites. While England are currently the top-ranked ODI side in the world, India are breathing down their neck at the second spot.
