The 2011 winners are Virat Kohli, who is the best ODI bowler in the world and is considered as the best of India, but he has to face a difficult start and avoid the ambush.

  • 66 years after Kapil Dev’s India – 66-1 outsiders won their first World Cup, at Lord’s, they entered into the 2019 tournament as joint favorites with England.
  • This time his leadership is a person who has been part of two successful World Cup campaign – the under-19 version (in the form of captain) in 2008 and the 2011 version (the youngest player in the team).

  • Now, in the case of senior captain, his reputation is followed in the epic run chase, Virat Kohli does not consider pressure only as an acquaintance, but he has been a long-lost friend.
  • There is a possibility to include more than 300 wickets in a tournament, which is often in the form of a summer embryo as candy floss, the captain of India for the half-century of any batsman with a minimum of 5,000 one-day internationals Claims the most successful conversion rate for he changed 41 out of his 90 half-centuries into three figures.
  • His record is also ridiculous in pursuing a successful pursuit: In 84 matches, Kohli averages more than 95 with 21 centuries. No rescue is safe until he is out.

World’s No 1 Ranked Bowler

Jaspreet Bumrah – The invasion of India is not only in the context of the speed of Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Bhubaneswar Kumar, but also as the left hand wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav and leg spinner Yuswendra Chahal. With four all-rounders, it is high on one side of confidence and behind the host is second in the ICC rankings. Yet, due to his huge migration, India treats England as home away from home.

But – and it’s a big one – it will be one of his most difficult world cup assignments.

  1. After only two warm-up games against New Zealand and Bangladesh, and no one-day international match, as Australia lost a series in Australia in March, only one match against India’s first three matches against South Africa, Australia and New Zealand Will be in the week.
  2. This is quite an introduction to the tournament. If asked, two of those games do not run in their own way, it makes them weak for their fourth match
  3. Against Pakistan, a very incomplete competition that has allowed the players and the management to lose sleepless nights for many nights.
  4. India has just emerged from a divisive general election, nationalist sentiment is at its peak: winning against Pakistan is non-negotiable.
  5. On the other hand, India has won all six World Cup matches against its bitter opponents.
  6. India’s batting depends heavily on the experience of their top three – Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli.
  7. Although Dhoni can be India’s largest finisher, with an average of 105 successful races (better than Kohli), he is worried that he is not following the big totals as his totem.
  8. And if anything happens to the recent England-Pakistan series, then there will be some really big totals.
  9. Finally, there is a burden of hope – only England will have to struggle with more pressure than India, the most supported team in all sports.
  10. As long as they recently lost to Australia, their only bilateral one-day series since January 2016 was in England last summer. But knowing Kohli, it will be just the inspiration that needs blood inside him.

However, thanks to Kohli, India now specializes in pursuing the goal.

  • This means that they can put Sharma in the best possible six after the final World Cup – when batting first, and Kohli chasing.
  • As far as bowling is concerned, Bumrah’s economy rate of 4.51, both the ability to swing Kumar’s ball, and Yadav’s ability to make the best fox in the business – he had 25 in the Trent Bridge against England last summer Take 6 wickets – they will be their main weapon.

A tournament is scheduled to be a run fest, the dot ball will be like gold dust.

  • With its unorthodox action, accuracy, and a bullet-like yorker, Bumrah is the dream of a captain, especially on death.
  • But it is his calm nature – recently during the IPL final match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings – this will be India’s largest asset.
  • During austerity, wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock gave Bumrahah a growing delivery through his gloves
  • In that situation, any bowler will have to excuse himself to get rid of something. Bumrahah’s reaction? One hand around the deck’s shoulder – and a frying smile.


Although it is the most inefficient format since the 1992 World Cup, in which only 10 teams are in the field, there is no separate group and there is no easy entry in the knockout stages, it would be a shock if India did not make the semi-finals.

After that, of course, this is someone’s game. As it was proved in the 2017 Champions Trophy final between India and Pakistan, a spectacular display – in this case, the century of Fakhar Zaman could match the match despite previous expectations. India will be eager to ensure that they will not kill again.
