India will dominate this WC like vintage Aussies: Ashwin
India’s premium off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin said that India stand every possible chance to dominate the ongoing World Cup tournament just like Australia did in 2003 and 2007.
Having played two games so far and that too against two big teams, South Africa and Australia, India comfortably registered two wins on the trot. Virat Kohli & Co are only riding high in confidence and there seems to be no drop in their momentum.
India will dominate like vintage Aussies: Ashwin
“India will go on to dominate this World Cup like Australia did in 2003 and 2007,” Ashwin said after launching the ‘Ashwin Foundation’, which strives to help young cricketers at his Gen-Next Cricket Institute.
Tamil Nadu cricketer also highlighted that India’s spinning duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have been pretty well for a while now. Chahal, in particular, has done remarkably well for the team as he picked 6 wickets so far in the tournament (4-wicket haul against South Africa and two wickets against Australia).
Kuldeep Yadav picked just one wicket so far which came against South Africa but it is not advisable to write him off now as there are more games to come.
“Chahal and Kuldeep have been doing well for a while now. Chahal has performed well in the World Cup also,” Ashwin added.
With 100% win record, India will lock horns with New Zealand on June 13 (Thursday) at Trent Bridge who too haven’t lost a single match so far with a hat-trick of wins in a row.
