The Indian Cricket team is on their way to England for the World Cup 2019. In the 12th edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup, India will play its first match on June 5 against South Africa at Southampton under the captaincy of Virat Kohli.
Here is the 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
A day before, Captain Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri addressed a press briefing at the BCCI Mumbai headquarters wherein Virat Kohli said that all bowlers of the team are in fresh form and handling pressure will be the most important thing in this season's World Cup.
"Handling pressure is the most important thing in the World Cup and not necessarily the conditions. All our bowlers are fresh, no one looks fatigued," he added.
He further stated that 2019 World Cup is the most challenging World Cup for him out of the three seasons he had played in his cricketing career.
"There will be quite a few high-scoring games looking at the conditions. Personally, I think it is probably the most challenging World Cup out of the three that I have been a part of. The focus will be to play the best cricket to the best of our potential. It is going to be a different challenge," Kohli added.
The quadrennial event will commence from May 30 as England will lock horns against South Africa at the Oval. The final will be played on July 14 at the Lord's with a reserve day on July 15. India will begin the tournament with a hope to hold the World Cup for the third time after the stunning victories under the captaincy of Kapil Dev and Mahendra Singh Dhoni in 1983 in 2011 respectively.
