Former Australia skipper Steve Waugh has picked the top-three batsmen he would be looking forward to in the upcoming World Cup beginning on May 30 in England and Wales.

“Definitely Virat Kohli,” Waugh told cricket.com.au. “He’s No. 1.”

England’s hard-hitting batsman Jos Buttler was Waugh’s second choice. “Jos Buttler, I’d have him at No. 2 in the top-three,” he said.

Buttler has been in amazing form in the last four years, not only in ODIs but all three formats of the game. Earlier this month, he smashed a 50-ball century against Pakistan in Southampton after taking the West Indies’ attack apart for 150 from just 77 balls in February.

The third batsman on Waugh’s list was David Warner.

“Aaron Finch at his best is right up there, so is David Warner,” said Waugh. “I’ll go with David Warner.”
