First 3 grp games for Ind in the WC may hold the key

Recommended Posts

1. June 5th vs SA at The Rose Bowl, Southampton

  • This will be SA 3rd game after playing Eng and BD 
  • Since this is an early group game, SA will be relatively under less pressure esp. if coming from a win vs BD 

 

2. June 9th vs AUS at Kensington Oval, London 

  • This will be Aus 3rd game too, having played AFG and dangerous WI 
  • A relatively full strength Aus would be confident after its recent encounters vs. India 

 

3. June 13th vs NZ at Trent Bridge, Nottingham 

  • This will be NZ's 4th game post its encounters with SL, BD and AFG
  • NZ will be well oiled to take on a team from subcon. Similarly, it would be Ind's 3rd consecutive game vs a SENA team

Best and Worst Case Scenario

  • If we win all 3, we have a great chance of making it to the SF (unless we mess up) 
  • If we lose the 3 games, we are out at worst or NRR scenario dependent at best (with WI, Eng and SL to tackle)

 

 

BOL!

We need to win 2 out of the three surely. I think we are capable of beating both NZ and South Africa but defending against Australia is where we lack and it prove din this series too during the record Australian Chase.

 

Our bowling has to be better when we are defending against Australia.

It's mainly about conditions. Ind defended 250 one day and couldn't defend 350 the other day.

In SENA since 1992, we have only won 4 games against them in WCs. From what I recall:  

 

1992 = 0 

1999  = Eng

2003 = Eng and NZ

2015 = SA 

2019 = ?

Lost to SA in 99, haven't beaten Aus since 1987(?) in non KO games. Have a mixed record against NZ, but good one vs England.

Talking about in SENA, that must be Eng in 1999 .... Eng and NZ  are relatively stronger in 2019

I think Pandya is vital, one really felt the lack of power hitting lower down the order in the AUS series. With him back, India have a fair chance of winning all 3.

 

Also, I think Rahul should play #4 based on the fact that he did quite well in the T20's in Eng last time. Even if he clicks every 3rd game, he'd be worth it.

2015 wasn't really tough. Except Aus we easily won against all other sides.

Meant to say this will be the toughest ODI tournament for India in many years. Bi-laterals don't have knockout pressure.

1992 WC was a missed opportunity esp. since Ind played tests and tri-series in Aus prior to the WC to get used to the conditions .... I hope that we do not go 1992 way in 2019
