World number-1 batsman (Test and ODI) Virat Kohli has consistently been included in the list of great players with his good show, but the World Cup in England will have an opportunity to make his mark in the form of the Indian captain.
The first Indian captain to lead the Test series at the Australian Test team, Kohli will lead a team that has some problems. But it is not less than a match-changing team, which is essential for big tournaments.
The Indian team will start its campaign in the World Cup against South Africa on June 5. The team will play practice matches against New Zealand and Bangladesh respectively on May 25 and May 28.
Who will bat at number four? Is Kedar Jadhav OK? However, all-rounder Jadhav has been declared fit. Third fast bowler or an all-rounder? Kuldeep or Chahal or both? Kohli will be seen more as captain than the batsman in the World Cup. There is no doubt that the Indian captain will be very important in this seven-week-long tournament where he is expected to cross 11,000 runs and he would like to add some more centuries to his 41 hundreds.
If the pitch in England is going to be flat like 'pancake', Rohit Sharma can add some more big hundreds due to his superb batting. It may be that the fourth double century may also be included, but for this, the vice-captain will have to continue the same form.
Shikhar Dhawan is also in the team, who has never performed poorly in ICC tournaments since their international debut and would also like to keep this record alive.
The troubles start after this and this is something the team has failed to solve on paper despite the good performance of the top three players on many occasions. And that is the position of fourth place after Ambati Rayudu failed to run this place, it is a matter of discussion and Rishabh Pant has not even got a place in the team.
At the same time, Dinesh Karthik's experience was preferred to him. Vijay Shankar or specialist opener KL Rahul are expected to play in this place. But whoever plays will have to play responsibly.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni's last World Cup campaign was emotional for his innumerable fans, but the ability of the rival teams to remain consistent with the strike rate of 70 and the 35th to 50th over will increase the consistency of consistency.
Kedar Jadhav will be number six. Those who are expected to be fully fit by June 5, the day the Indian team will launch a campaign against South Africa in Southampton. Jadhav is leaving for England with Team India on May 22. However, the poor performance of Jadhav in 14 IPL matches will be a matter of concern.
At the seventh, Hardik Pandya's versatile talent is expected to be good use during the tournament. Their ability to hit sixes in death overs can change the game's scenario.
In the last two years, the Indian team management and selectors, Kurali spinner Kuldeep Yadav and Yuswendra Chahal have given considerable thrust to those who have also enjoyed great success.
