In the ICC World Cup 2019 which is going to take place in England and Wales, apart from the hosts, Team India is considered as the favourites to lift the trophy. Virat Kohli’s Men in Blue are in a good form and there is no fitness confirm apart from Kedar Jadhav.
The trio of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and captain Virat Kohli have combined to notch up 10,944 runs from 207 innings at an average of 60.8 and a strike rate of 97.04.
Team India are currently placed at the second spot in the ICC ODI Team Rankings.
Apart from them, Team India also feature pacers like Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya into their side, who are capable to turn things away from any opposition.
With the likes of Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and MS Dhoni, Team India look monstrous on the papers and we hope them to bring the same on the ground as well.

With the experience of former skipper MS Dhoni and the talent of youngsters like Hardik Pandya and Bumrah, the Men in Blue are capable of pulling off win from most difficult situations.
Team India begin their World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 5 at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.
Team India under Ravi Shastri were facing a problem at number 4 in their batting order which is also sustained by the inclusion of KL Rahul, who has shown a good form in IPL 2019.
Apart from pace bowling, the spin bowling section would be led by the chinaman, Kuldeep Yadav and he will be accompanied by fellow spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. All-rounder abilities of Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav and Vijay Shankar will also prove to be an asset for Team India.
