4 matches, 3 wins, 2 injuries… What next for Team India?


The World Cup is underway in England, and Team India is playing exceptionally good cricket. In the 4 games they have played in the tournament so far, the Men in Blue have registered 3 wins against big teams like Australia, South Africa & most recently Pakistan. 1 game against New Zealand was washed out hence, the team has 7 points from 4 outings and maintain a top 4 position on the points table.

Bowling is a big reason why Team India is performing well at the World Cup. With one of the best bowling attacks, Team India are the overwhelming favourites to win the trophy. Led by Jasprit Bumrah, the bowling department has a good mix of talent and experience. With Kuldeep Yadav & Yuzvendra Chahal bowling superbly in tandem, the team is packing a punch in the middle overs. The experienced pacer, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has suffered a hamstring injury and is expected to be out of Team India’s next 3 games. His replacement, Mohd Shami is also an experienced candidate and is in tremendous form as well.

The batting department is being led by Rohit Sharma who has smashed 2 hundreds in the tournament already. Virat Kohli is also in a superb nick and is scoring runs at will. India lost the services of opener Shikhar Dhawan as he broke his thumb during his match-winning hundred against Australia. Dhawan is out for 3 weeks and is expected to be fit again during the knockout stages of the World Cup.

The game against Pakistan was considered a tough one but with an easy win against the arch-rivals, the team is now posing as the strongest and most balanced side in the competition. The Men in Blue next play Afghanistan on Saturday which is expected to be an easy outing. The team then plays some crucial games against hosts England, West Indies, Bangladesh & Sri Lanka during the round robin stages.
