Cricket World Cup 2019’s stage set for Joe Root, Virat Kohli, Steve Smith and Kane Williamson to play defining role.

RRoot, Williamson, Kohli and Smith will be key to their teams’ hopes of lifting the World Cup Cricket’s Fab Four — Virat, Joe, Kane and Steve — are, by common consent, among the most accomplished of the multi-format batsmen presently playing, similar in age and importance to their teams. For those who would compare and contrast, the cards have fallen well: the four maestros find themselves on opposing sides in the forthcoming semi-finals of the 2019 Cricket World Cup and it would be surprising if one of them does not play a defining innings to determine its destination.

Kohli, Root and Williamson have had fine tournaments so far, without enjoying complete dominance, while Smith has been more anonymous. Each knows the next play will shape permanent perceptions of the tournament and that a defining innings will leave a more lasting impression than anything.
