Kolkata. The top-seeded England and India, though, are considered to be the strongest contenders in the World Cup, but South African veteran fast bowler Dale Steyn said that rankings will not be of much importance during the tournament.

The World Cup will be held in England from May 30. During the press conference, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) bowler Steyn said during the press conference, "According to me, the rankings are of no importance these days. I do not even know what the West Indies are ranking but this team recently defeated England. Australia was losing consistently but now she has started winning.

He said, I believe that there are bright opportunities to win the title of every team going to the World Cup. The England team is playing in their home and they are performing well in the ODIs. The team who will get used to the conditions of circumstances will increase the chances of winning.

Stan, who is going to be 36 in June, will be the last World Cup and he said that There are many hopes from the African team. They said, I do not think that Africa have lost a one-day series in the last two and a half years, but no one considers us to be a strong contender. D. Africa has won 11 of the last 13 ODI series.

Stan said, if someone is not going to win with the intention of winning in the World Cup, then he should not go. We have many great players.

South African pace spearhead Kagiso Rabada, spinner Imran Tahir and captain Faf du Plessis are currently in formidable form. I think that South Africa will eventually win the World Cup.

South Africa will face hosts England on May 30 in the opening match of the World Cup. Stan did not buy any team in the IPL auction, but Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) replaced him in the team instead of injured Nathan Colter Nile. Coach Gary Kirsten had asked me whether I was playing in and bowling at the nets so I told him that I was preparing for the local T20 tournament.
