5 reasons why India are in the right direction for the ICC World Cup 2019
With the 2019 World Cup being just a year away, let's look at India's position in terms progress they've made since 2017 Champions Trophy.
India was on a juggernaut in the recently concluded cricketing season. Apart from the Test series against South Africa, India won everything against different oppositions. It's not that the team wasn't tested, in fact they were put under pressure several times during the season, but the beauty of this current lot is that they know no fear and therefore, are able to make strong comebacks to every setback.
With the 2019 World Cup just a year away now, let's look at the five reasons why India is on the right path.
#1 A vast pool of players
India seems to be the best team in terms of planning for any of the ICC events. The current team has such a vast pool of players for each category, that it will be tough for the selectors to name the squad for the upcoming World Cup.
Be it the spin department, the fast-bowling department or the batting, India has worthy backups for every position. In fact, India is one those few teams that can hypothetically field two teams in a tournament.
But here we have to credit the BCCI for maintaining a strong domestic circuit and knowing its value. Even IPL plays a huge role for the players, at least financially.
