India has the most balanced squad among all the teams and they are the favourites to lift the cup this year. They have depth in their batting and they have all types of bowlers in their arsenal as well. Virat and Co. have become a nightmare already and no team would want to face them in the competition.
India produces more cricket talent than any other county in the world and they have selected the best of them for the biggest stage of all. So, you cannot underestimate even a single player in their squad but here we have shortlisted three most important players for India in the world cup.
- Shikhar Dhawan
Shikhar Dhawan never disappoints you in an overseas tournament. He is a run machine and he doesn’t care if the pitch is supporting spinners of if it’s a green grassy pitch. He’ll bash every bowler out of the park and he starts destruction from the very first bowl.
Dhawan has an average of 44.62 in ODI’s and has scored 5355 runs in 127 innings with 16 tons and 27 half centuries. He is definitely the most dangerous opener in the world on English tracks.
- Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli is considered as the greatest ever player to play the sports of Cricket. The Indian captain has no weakness and is considered as the god of chasing. He has developed a habit of scoring centuries and no bowling line-up can create problems for him.
He is without a doubt the key for India and India will be replying on him more than any other player.
Virat has scored 10843 runs in 219 innings with an average of 59.57 and with 41 centuries and 49 half centuries.
- MS Dhoni
MS Dhoni is one of the finest players and the greatest captain of all. He has won every possible tournament with India and although he’s not their captain any more we all know he is still the mastermind of the Indian team. His skills and his brain is the reason what makes him the most dangerous and most important player of the Indian team.
Apart from that, he’s one of the finest finishers the world has ever seen. He has scored 10500 runs in 289 innings with an average of 50.72 with 10 tons and 71 half-centuries and these stats are crazy for someone who bats at No.6 or No.7 but again the reason why we consider him as the most important player for Indian team is his captaincy skills and that makes him and Indian team a nightmare for other teams.
