Kohli’s India boast firepower to make World Cup charge

ICC World Cup 2019,World Cup 2019,World Cup

"Team India reached England for the all-important World Cup 2019".

Captain Aaron Finch's own battle with poor form provided the microcosm of the turmoil Australian cricket endured before series victories against India and Pakistan. "So I see pressure being a massive factor in the World Cup". It's a festival for all the cricket fanatics around the world.

Kohli banished his own English demons a year ago when he comfortably finished as the leading scorer in the test series and second highest scorer in ODIs even though England won both. With just a few days left for the tournament to kickstart, the Virat Kohli led Indian team is headed for the match.

May 25: India will play their first warm-up game against New Zealand at the Oval. The critics, fans, supporters, haters alike have been amounting a lot of pressure on these 15 gentlemen, who are representing India in the showpiece event.

"We play (these guys) twice a (season) in the IPL, so you know their weaknesses, you know their strengths, you know if they can't run between the wickets.it gets you an extra bit of inside information". But punters picked up on some awkward moments between the pair, with a sizeable gap between them and a lack of chit chat at times. They were spotted at the airport as they headed off for the upcoming World Cup tournament to be held in England and Wales.

In a column for The Daily Mail, former England skipper Nasser Hussain said: "This is not only the best World Cup squad England have ever had, it's probably their best ever one-day squad". In any other country in the world, overcast conditions don't matter much.

"But I can not rule out the home team (England)". "If Jofra said that it's a big compliment as he is a world-class bowler and there's a good reason why he's been fast-tracked into playing for England".

Ravi Shastri voiced out his opinion on the bowling unit, calling it an experienced one.

Ravi Shastri acknowledged the fact that there is no room for complacency in this highly competitive tournament. The session will be followed by a press conference.

"When you get closer to the knockout phases that is going to bring greater pressure and no-one is going to go gung-ho from ball one".

Here are some of the tweets by the players.

England's spectacular rise is due to a change in their approach to one-day cricket and Jonny Bairstow reflected that when the opener was recently asked to choose between winning the World Cup and regaining the Ashes.

A woeful first-round exit at the 2015 World Cup following a defeat by Bangladesh prompted England to overhaul their approach to the 50-over game and give it the status they had previously reserved for Test cricket.
