Indian Cricket team are getting criticized for their continuous failure in big competitions. A team that destroys their opponents in bilateral matches somehow fails to make it big at global tournaments is what concerns most of the experts and even the fans. India won the last 50-over World cup in 2011.
India haven’t won any major title since 2013, however, former Indian Cricket Board president and a former captain of the Indian cricket team, Sourav Ganguly, thinks the Men in Blue have the potential to win the ODI World Cup at home this year.
Ahead of the marquee tournament, Ganguly feels that skipper Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid should continue with the same team that recently defeated Sri Lanka and New Zealand at home.
“India can never be a weak team. A country that has so much talent can never be a weak team. Half of the players don’t even get a chance. I would want Rahul Dravid, Rohit Sharma, and the selectors to hold on to the same team till the World Cup, When they reach the World Cup, they should play without any baggage. They should play fearless cricket, it doesn’t matter if they win the trophy or not,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by Sports Tak.

The legendary opener praised India’s extraordinary cricketers and urged them to give it their all at the upcoming World Cup. The Indian side recently witnessed youngsters Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan hitting double centuries in ODIs and their brilliance with the bat caught everyone’s attention.
The great opening batter heaped praise on India’s talented cricketers and said they should go all out.
“The team which has Shubman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami… Ravindra Jadeja will come back… can never be bad,” he added.
