Team India are in the ICC World Cup Semi Finals!


The Men in Blue have made it to the semifinal of the 2019 Cricket World Cup after beating neighbours Bangladesh in a close match. This was India’s 6th win in 8 outings which confirmed a semifinal spot.

So what has worked for India so far? Here is a list:


  1. Rohit Sharma’s consistency

Despite losing his opening partner, Shikhar Dhawan, to an injury, Rohit Sharma has been the rock of Indian batting at the World Cup. With 544 runs in 7 games, Hitman has smashed 4 hundreds. He is also the highest run-getter of the tournament so far.

  1. Virat’s captaincy and batting

Virat Kohli has smashed 5 half centuries in 7 games for India at the World Cup so far. The skipper has been superbly consistent in his approach and has had a glorious run so far at the tournament. Virat’s captaincy has also been appreciated by fans and cricket pundits and that has definitely helped the side qualify for their 3rd straight semifinals at the World Cup.

  1. Fast bowling

The fast bowling department for Team India is having the best time ever at the World Cup. Jasprit Bumrah has been the Knight in Shining Armour for the team and has rescued the side in tough times. After an injury to Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohd Shami has come out all guns blazing for the side. Hardik Pandya too provides a great option in the middle overs which helps the team to choke the opposition. Together the fast bowling department has picked up 42 wickets in the 7 games played so far.

While all seems to be working out well for the men in blue, the management was forced to make multiple changes to the squad due to injuries. Rishabh Pant was called in to replace Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Agarwal got the call after Vijay Shankar was ruled out with a toe injury. Despite the hiccups which included a loss to hosts England, the team is looking very strong and are the top contenders to win the tournament.
