3 areas of concern for India at the 2019 World Cup
2019 World Cup is just a year away and some issues plague the Indian team
The Indian juggernaut has reached a supreme level of dominance in ODI cricket after having clinched the ODI series against South Africa in South Africa. In the past 18 months, Virat Kohli and his men have played a fantastic brand of cricket across all the formats. Having cemented the No.1 spot in ICC ODI Rankings, the Indian team have made sure that they go into the 2019 World Cup as one of the pre-tournament favorites.
With less than a year to go for the grand 2019 World Cup, the Indian team would like to try out all permutations and combinations to churn out the best team for the 2019 World Cup. Thus, let us have a look at the areas of concern that the Indian team will need to look into before the 2019 World Cup.
#3 Countering the post 40-over ball
While the Indian team is basking in the glory of their memorable series win against South Africa, there is no denying the fact that the team administration wouldn't be happy. The reason for the same is India's constant struggles to finish the innings strongly.
Although India's batting line-up has produced some strong performances in the past, they have struggled on one front, and it has been a problem over the last two years. While setting targets, India haven't matched other international teams in making the most of the final 10 overs.
With a little more than a year remaining for the following World Cup, the consistent disappointments to finish off emphatically are sufficient to give the team administration restless nights. In Kohli, India has a skipper who will never shy away from accepting striking issues and one can anticipate that he will act in the near future to take care of this issue.
