The Cricket world cup is scheduled to occur in 2019. Every team is preparing their best and is looking to plug in their best team combination. It is definitely going to be a tough battle for each nations. The World Cup will be held in England, and, it seems they are one of the top favorites to win the cup. However, the team where most people would like to vouch for and has the maximum chance of winning is- India. Let us understand how.

India has always been considered as a good batting team. However, in the last couple of years, bowling and fielding has improved tremendously. Talking of bowling, the combination of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar kumar has made India perhaps the best bowling attack currently. Kumar can swing the ball early in the innings and Bumrah can work on death overs to chuck opposition.

Also, the likes of Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra chahal, Ashwin and Jadeja has made the spin bowling look really vicious. The recent ongoing series between India and Australia bears testimony to that fact. Any team will have a tough time facing these bowlers. They have experience as well as the courage to prove something out of the box.

The fielding of the current India team is probably the best in the world right now. The young players would give more than cent percent to stop any runs and boundaries. The catching has also improved magnificently. India are producing classy all-rounders with one player multitasking several roles.

However, the thing which always helps India take advantage of situation, is their batting. Virat Kohli is the number one batsman in the world, and, has the backing of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinky Rahane and others. These players are all match-winners and can single handedly win you games on their day. These batsmen are nightmare for every bowlers.

Also, India has the most experienced, skilled and the best Wicket Keeper in the world- MS Dhoni. He has the record of fastest stumping in International cricket and can change the course of a match at any instant. He can hit some big sixes as well.

This is a very well balanced team, which can squeeze the life out of his opponents and can be a tough team to beat. They can beat any and every opposition and will aim to win the world cup third time in history.
