With the 2019 Cricket World Cup just a few months away, the hustle and bustle regarding the ICC megaevent has taken over everyone. And that is generally the case in the World Cup year as the cricketing carnival takes place only once in four years. Teams eagerly await to stamp their authority in world cricket through the Cricket World Cup.
Team India are one of the red-hot contenders to win the title, this year. Indian cricketer, Suresh Raina feels MS Dhoni is going to be indispensable to India’s chances in the 50-overs World Cup.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Raina said that the Indian wicket-keeper batsman will play a crucial role if India are to win the showpiece event.
“The amount of runs Dhoni has scored recently in Australia and New Zealand and the kind of guidance he gives to the youngsters in the team, especially the bowlers, that augurs really well for the boys. He has seen a lot of ups and downs, he has been a part of quite a few World Cups and has also been there in IPL finals and that is why he is the go-to-man for skipper Kohli,” he said.
The 2019 World Cup will commence from May 30 in England and Wales. Australia are reigning World-Cup champions but it is England and India, who are touted as the favorites to win the title.
