Kohli reveals the strongest side of WC 2019
“England in their conditions are the most strong side in this tournament. But all the teams so strong and well balanced and the fact we have to play everyone once, I think this will be the most competitive World Cup that anyone will have seen,” Kohli said at the official captains’ media conference.
All the 10 teams will play each other in a round-robin stage, with the top four qualifying for the semis- a change in format which makes the tournament competitive than ever before.
According to Eoin Morgan, this world cup will turn out to be one heck of a contest as he believes there will be high-quality cricket played from game one.
England skipper Eoin Morgan said “I don’t think anyone is head and shoulders above anyone else. These are the ten best teams in the world, it will be extraordinarily competitive and some quality cricket will be played so we are really looking forward to it.”
“Every captain sitting here would lose their left leg to play in a World Cup final at the home of cricket. It’s something every one of us would have dreamed of as a kid. We are as best prepared as we can be. We just want to play that first game now,” Morgan added.
India will commence their campaign against South Africa on June 5 at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground while England will start their world cup opener against South Africa on May 30 at The Kennington Oval.
