Former Indian player and skipper Mohammad Azharuddin is impressed by current Indian team by the win against West Indies. He was present at Old Trafford to witness the match live.
Currently, India stands at 2nd position of the points table with 5 wins out of 6 games and the match against New Zealand got washed out. India has an impressive Net Run Rate of +1.160.
Mohammad Azharuddin was quite impressed by Virat Kohli & Co’s win against West Indies and backed them to stay unbeaten in the competition till 14th July.
“India will be unbeaten till the 14th (July), I think. It appears that way. It looks like that. India are a very happy team. Everybody is performing. I don’t see any reason why can’t go all the way,” Azharuddin.
Virat and Co. will take on the host England on 30th June 2019, This is one of the most anticipated matches of the tournament and this match will decide the fortune of England Semi-final hopes.
“England’s morale is down. They have a very good side but I think they are struggling. They won’t even qualify for the semi-final. That would be a disappointment,” he said.
Indian middle order has been facing issues with the No-4 position and Vijay Shankar has failed to impress with his batting at that position and Azhar feels Rishabh Pant can do justice to that position.
“We need to play the best side. Vijay Shankar has a lot of talent and skill. But he doesn’t have the experience. I think we should go with Rishabh Pant. He has done well against England in the Tests,” he concluded.
