As we get ready for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Team India will be hoping to become the second most successful side in the history of the tournament. India currently have two titles (1983 and 2011) along with West Indies (1975 and 1979). Australia is the most successful team with five titles to their name and has come into the 10-nation competition as the defending champions.
The twelfth edition of the quadrennial event will be played across eleven venues in England and Wales. Team India, in the first phase will be playing their nine matches in six of the 11 chosen venues. If they reach the finals, there will be another venue i.e. Lord’s, the home of cricket, the venue at which India lifted their inaugural World Cup in 1983, against all odds.
India have won 56 of the 86 matches they have played since the last World Cup and have the second-best win-loss ratio behind number one ODI side in the world, England.
And ahead of the commencement of the World Cup 2019, Bollywood actress and Miss Diva 2015, Urvashi Rautela, has wished the former India skipper MS Dhoni and his successor Virat Kohli all the best. All eyes are on Dhoni and Kohli as India are one of the favourites to win the World Cup title this year.
“Wishing @msdhoni & @imVkohli all the best !!!! 🇮🇳,” Rautela tweeted.
