"This World Cup Would Be Most Challenging", Says Indian Skipper Virat Kohli

New Delhi: Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, and head coach Ravi Shastri addressed the media ahead of Team India's departure to participate in the Cricket World Cup that is slated to begin on May 30 in England and Wales. in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Undoubtedly, Virat Kohli will be the fulcrum of India's famed batting line-up that has a fair share of problems of its own. The number four conundrum needs to be addressed in a unit that is not short of game-changers. 

Virat Kohli, arguably the best batsman in the world right now, will hold the key to India's chances in the quadrennial event where he is expected to cross 11,000 ODI runs and also add a few more hundreds to his tally of 41.

A World Cup victory will put Virat Kohli in a league of his own as earlier this year he became the first Indian captain to win a Test series on the Australian soil. 

India's lethal bowling attack, consisting of Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami among others, is pretty much well-set and has been one of the most potent in the the recent years. 

However, Kohli and Shastri will have to decide if they want to go with an extra all-rounder, Kuldeep Yadav or Yuzvendra Chahal or both.

Before India begin their World Cup 2019 campaign against South Africa on June 5, they will play warm-up games against New Zealand (May 25) and Bangladesh (May 28).
