India’s Quest for World Cup Glory: Could They Be the Greatest Team in History?

India and Australia will compete for the 13th World Cup championship at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday night. If India wins, they will become only the sixth team in history to go through the tournament undefeated. Australia awaits them in the finals after their victory over South Africa in the semi-finals. India has been impressive in the tournament, but they are not invincible. Australia has won eight games in a row but has not put together a complete performance. If India wins, they will have a claim to be considered among the best in ODI World Cup history. There have been 12 previous champions of the World Cup, and to determine which one is the greatest, each team was analyzed based on all-time greats, domination, and legacy. Teams that were not as strong compared to others were removed from contention. In a hypothetical match, the 1992 Pakistan side could beat anyone, but they also had the tendency to put in a collective shocker, and they had their share of luck to win the cup. The West Indies’ 1979 side contains their two greatest skippers, Clive Lloyd, and Viv Richards, world-class openers in Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes, and a strong pace battery. However, the Australian sides of 1999-2003 are probably just a touch behind them. Five players backed up from 1999 to be part of the final celebrations of 2003, making them a formidable team. Although they started their march to victory slowly, the Australian 1999 team is considered the greatest when it comes to World Cup champions. They had strong leadership, an aura that frightened opposing batters, no weak links, and a formidable line-up that makes them likely to finish at the top in a hypothetical tournament between all the World Cup champions.
