In the last 15 years, Team India has evolved into one of the powerhouses in the cricketing world. After a gap of 28 years, they managed to emerge the world leaders by lifting the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2011. This has been one of the best times for cricket in the country as they set their eyes on the third World Cup trophy.
In the ongoing edition, Team India began their campaign with a six-wicket win over South Africa at Southampton on June 5.
Virat Kohli-led India next played Australia at the Oval in London, which also turned out to be another one-sided game in favour of the Men in Blue. India’s third match against New Zealand at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain.
The much-awaited India vs Pakistan clash took place at the Old Trafford in Manchester on June 16. According to former cricketer Waqar Younis, Pakistan’s defeat against India exposed the “massive difference” between the two sides when the Men in Green suffered an 89-run thrashing by Team India in their World Cup 2019 fixture.
India is currently placed at the third position in the points table and is all set to play few weaker opponents – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and West Indies – in their remaining league games to qualify for the semi-finals.
Ahead of India’s next game against Afghanistan on June 22, Bollywood diva Disha Patani has sent her best wishes to the Indian team. The bubbly actress, who played the role of MS Dhoni’s girlfriend in the movie “MS Dhoni: The Untold Story”, want the Men in Blue to bring back the World Cup trophy.
“Time to bring back the World Cup! Me with my @calvinklein #SwissMade Watch, wish #TeamIndia all the best for the #WorldCup2019 #MYCALVINS,” she wrote in her post.
