Cricket is dominated by teams from South Asia. India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka were five of the ten teams in the ongoing ICC 2023 Cricket ODI World Cup. Players of South Asian origin from South Africa, England, the Netherlands, and New Zealand adapted to the Indian pitches quickly and comfortably. South African Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi, Englishmen Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali, Flying Dutchmen Teja Nidamanuru and Aryan Dutt, and New Zealand's Ravindra Rachin and Ish Sodhi relished the opportunities they had on Indian pitches. New Zealand's Mumbai born spinner Ajaz Yunus Patel could have been a real threat to opponents on Indian soil.

5 time champions Australia won its first World Cup in India and they were the underdogs in the 1987 final.

They don't have Steve Waugh but they do have Steve Smith who has been pretty quiet this World Cup.
