    Glenn Maxwell is hopeful of repeating his batting success from four years ago as he bids to help defending champions Australia to success at the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup in England.

    The allrounder cited the 2015 World Cup where on four occasions he made stand-out contributions for Australia with less than 20 overs remaining – 66, 88, 102 and 44 not out – all at a strike-rate in excess of 150. In that tournament, Maxwell averaged 64.80 and had a strike-rate of 182.02 while batting at numbers four, five and six to be a key figure in Australia’s success, and weeks before the 2019 edition gets underway he spoke of flexibility being the focus point.

    Two narrows wins in the span of a few days has left England captain Eoin Morgan in a positive frame of mind before the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, because in his estimation such matches push the leading ODI team into a good space.

    On Sunday, Morgan’s unbeaten 57 took England to a seven-wicket victory over top-ranked Pakistan in the first T20I. Two days earlier, the debutant Ben Foakes made an unbeaten 61 to get England over the finish line in the one-off ODI against Ireland.

    Just weeks before the start of the World Cup, Morgan took comfort from these two hard-fought wins.

    Mumbai Indians claimed the top spot on the IPL 2019 points table by hammering Kolkata Knight Riders by nine wickets at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday to close out the league stage of the tournament and finalise the playoffs schedule.

    Kolkata Knight Riders were eliminated from the playoffs race with this defeat, which brings SRH into the final four.

    Mumbai’s huge win, which came after KKR were kept to 133/7 in 20 overs, put them at No 1 on the points table which means that they will play defending champions CSK in Qualifier 1 at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium in on May 7 (Tuesday).
