In addition to the Indian cricket team, which is headed by Virat Kohli, in the World Cup, hosts England are considered to be the strongest contenders for the title. After winning the Test series 2-1 in the tour of Australia, the Indian team had also captained the ODI series 2-1. After this, India won the one-day series 4-1 in the New Zealand tour while they lost 1-2 in the three T20 T20 series.
In England, the Indian team is going to get the pitch exactly as they did in New Zealand. Since the Indian bowlers and the batsmen are in full swing, then it should be expected that they will give a tough fight to the remaining 9 teams.
