ICC World Cup 2019: India Team Preview, Strengths and Weaknesses

ICC World Cup 2019: India Team Preview, Strengths and Weaknesses

India team, led by Virat Kohli is one of the favourites to lift the Cup this time. India already won the World Cup twice- in 1983 and 2011. Since the convincing victory in 2011, they have only grown for the betterment and hence regarded as a tough contender. Let’s take a look at the Strengths and Weaknesses of Team India for the ICC World Cup 2019.

India Squad:

Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal

Strength of Team India

India cricket team has always boasted the batting line up. Since ages, India has produced world class batsmen. This team is no exception. Virat Kohli, the number one batter is always at the service. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the perfect finisher with all his experience. There are Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan to give a solid start to the team. England will have batting friendly for the tournament. No wonder Indians will have run-fest. This team has match-winning all-rounder like Hardik Pandya as well who can be handy as a wicket take any time. India’s bowling side is currently one of the best and arguably the best Indian cricket has ever produced. India looks good with the perfect set of combination for the tournament.

Weakness of Team India

Apparently, India looks all set but the first warm-up match against New Zealand gave a glimpse of the weakness as well. The batting line up can collapse at any time. Too much dependency on Virat Kohli, especially during the chase can go all wrong. Most importantly, India is still to decide on their No. 4 position. This needed to be sorted as soon as possible. Vijay Shankar was selected for the same role apparently. But KL Rahul’s glorious performance in the final warm-up made it once again troublesome for Kohli. Team management has to finalize this as soon as possible.
