Former Australian cricketer, Adam Gilchrist, has revealed his top four teams for the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup in India later this year in October.

In a recent conversation with Press Trust of India (PTI), Gilchrist shared his thoughts on the tournament.

"I think India and Pakistan could feature in the semi-finals, Australia and England are another two teams," Gilchrist told PTI.

He further highlighted that Australia will have the opportunity to fine-tune their preparations with three matches against India before the mega event.

"Australia will learn a lot from their efforts in South Africa when they come to India, they have got three games before the World Cup against India so they will have a bit more of a full strength squad there so that might tell us a bit about where they are at so it’s a bit hard who's gonna win it (World Cup) but I think there is probably four semi-finalists there," he added.

The ICC World Cup 2023 is slated to take place in India during October and November, featuring a total of 10 participating teams. The tournament is set to kick off on October 5, with the final match scheduled for November 19.
