Indian Cricket Captain Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri addressed a press media in Mumbai before leaving for England for the World Cup 2019. Speaking at the press briefing at the BCCI Mumbai headquarters, 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. Focus will be to play the best cricket to the best of our potential. It is going to be a different challenge," Kohli added. 

Addressing the briefing following Kohli, coach Ravi Shastri said that the most important thing in this season will be to enjoy the game and if played to potential, the boys will bring the cup home.

"It is about striving for consistency and not playing any differently. The most important thing to enjoy the World Cup. If you play it to potential, the cup might be here," Ravi Shastri said.
