Icc Cricket Worldcup 2019:india Preview - Hitcricket
Reason why India is favourites
There is a reason almost everybody around the world they put India as joint favourites along with the England in ICC Cricket Worldcup 2019 and
that’s because India built a little aura around themselves.65% wins since the Cricket Worldcup 2015 and you go overseas it goes upto 69.23%.
After 2017 champions trophy loss India come a long way as a Odi side they won 9 bilateral series wins in row and the fact the India’s batting evokes
awe among the opposition largely because of the Top3.Nobody has scored more runs then Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma before the ICC Cricket
Worldcup 2019 .
They scores lots of hundreds and they averages over 60 and Shikar Dhawan comes along as perfect foil for both of them and those top3 are good as
anybody else in the world.you could look turn around and say England has Bairstow,Roy,Root is a fabulous Top3 but there is something about these
three and I think if Inida has to win the world cup then these three have to make a huge contribution.
Msd back in form at No5
And what else Msd at No5 is big contribution and I saw him batting during the Ipl and you could see the old Dhoni is coming back aswell.
12 months ago I must admit I thought may be Msd is weak link in the side and dare I say that he is batting like Msd of old and I actually think he is
wonderful resource at No5 and with that experience in his bag he will be a crucial cog for India to win the cup.
Hardik is big player at No7 for India in Icc Cricket Worldcup 2019.He balances the side with is batting and bowling.He seems to finish very easily
he seems to take the pressure of finishing games very easily he is gonna be big player at No7 for world cup.
India’s Long Tail
Unlike England,India got a very long tail.Whats happens batting there after, India’s batting falls of cliff and its so important therefore Top7 do well
for India.Who bats at No8,normally they say that if the Top 7 cant do No8 cant.But we are looking for a 350 worldcup no8 has to be score runs.
But if india play our best four bowlers at present the best four at the moment are Bumrah,Shami,Chahal,Kuldeep and literally anybody could bat 8
and so that top 7 had to do well.
This might lead to Top3 batting conservatively.In any case India’s Top3 are far more conservative than any other team but I just get a feeling that
India might be conservative at the top to account for the fact that India has very very long tail.
Bowling Trump cards
But there are other reasons India start among the favourites is the bowling.Few are the sides can boast three of the five bowlers
(Bumrah,Kuldeep,Chahal) who takes wickets every 4-5 overs and have economy of under 5.
And that’s not going to happen you are not going to get economy of under 5 but that’s what these three are capable of.And even
Shami has been great form recently and these are your top 4 bowlers.
Kuldeep back in form
You might turn around and say Kuldeep yadav is going through bit of a dip.But there is something intresting that happened during IPL
Whether it was Msd or Rohit they all working on talking to Kuldeep just to ensure you that he is in right frame of mind and the beauty of world cup
you wont same team everyday and that is big plus for him and we expect him to do well.
So bowling is in pretty decent hands its question of whose is going to 6&7 bowlers we didn’t talk about Vijay shankar and Kedar Jadhav and I think
they are going to be bonus players In this side.If Shankar does bat at No4 and it is going to be ask from him and Kedar is good finisher No6.
Unresolved No4 Issue
And what about the other issues then One big issue No4 and we have been talking about it from long time.And reason we bring back about No4
issue is something intresting that Virat Kohli said recently.
Every captain was asked which is the one player you want from outside your team and didn’t say Rabada,Warner or one of those big names his
answer was Faf du plesis who are the best no4’s in the world Steve smith,Eoin morgan,Faf du plesis.May be is little worried about that spot.
But every team has that soft spot and india has to overcome that if they have a chance of making it.
And there is another factor India has to be worry if Jadeja doesn’t play they don’t have Jadeja,Pandey or Rahane this is not the stand out fielding
side it was.
At the champions trophy 2013 squad world look at India and said India is very good fielding side.the bowlers are not that great
in the field.I you are looking at 330-340 games fielding has to contribute 1-2 wickets.India’s have to up their fielding enormously if they want to
compete hard on that front.
How well does India fare at ICC Cricket Worldcup 2019?
Will India make to final four?or I’ll say if they don’t it will be one of the big results of the world cup.If you win 6 out of 9 games you are almost
certain to go through 5 wins may be little bit of here and there but if India don’t make it it will be huge huge surprise.and I am backing India big time
making it to Top 4 and after its just the question of what happens in last two days.
