The Indian team departed in the late hours on Tuesday for England and Wales to begin their preparations for the all-important ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 which is set to start on May 30. The Virat Kohli-led side will be all geared up for the mega-event as almost every cricket pundit believes they can turn the show. The likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Mohammad Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Ravindra Jadeja will be seen playing their second 50-over World Cup. Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni are too most experienced campaigners in Indian line up.
The Men in Blue have had good preparations for the ICC mega event with the recently concluded Indian Premier League. While some cricketers have displayed good form ahead the marquee event, others would be looking to reflect upon their poor performances and get things right on time before the first game.
India will be kick-starting their campaign at Rose Bowl in Southampton against South Africa on 5th June. Before that, India will also be playing two warm-up games against New Zealand and neighbours Bangladesh.
Standing at the No.2 position in the ICC ODI rankings and also boasting of some great batsmen in their ranks alongside a formidable bowling line-up, India are amongst the favourites to win the World Cup.
The Indian team, after travelling from Mumbai to Dubai, has finally reached London, where they will begin their homework. In this scenario, the official twitter account of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) posted a picture which was captioned, "Touchdown London #TeamIndia".
