India will take on England in the upcoming Test series. Root-led England have a better chance of winning the series against the visitors. Former India batsman WV Raman feels that Virat Kohli’s Team India can upset the hosts in the purest format of the game. However, he also added that it is not always the pressure that results in a poor performance by any top team
He was also asked about India’s chances in the upcoming T20 World Cup.
“I cannot say with a guarantee if Virat Kohli will win an ICC Trophy or not. The Indian team has performed well in each of the three formats under Kohli. If you look at it, this Indian team has a very good chance in the T20 World Cup.
“T20 is a format where no one is sure what would happen. Everything can change in just one over. That is the beauty of sport. You look at World No. 1 Djokovic (who won all the three Grand Slams so far this year), who could not win the bronze medal in the Tokyo Olympics He was in great form in tennis this year.
“This happens in top-level sport. Generally, we cannot predict what happens in cricket, and more so in T20 cricket. Who wins, whether Kohli wins, it is different. If you look at his captaincy record, he has a very good success record. India is well placed to win the T20 World Cup.” added Raman.
