According to Sourav Ganguly, the presence of the two most successful IPL captains, Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni are extremely valuable to skipper Virat Kohli this World Cup. He believes that the captain can turn to them during tough situations. He asserted the fact that Virat Kohli’s poor form as a captain in the IPL should not be taken into consideration. He said, "Don't compare Virat Kohli's IPL captaincy record with that of India. His captaincy records for India is very good actually. He's got Rohit in his team as the vice-captain. Dhoni is there. So he's well supported."
Another added bonus according to him is Hardik Pandya. He said, “Hardik Pandya will play a key role. He is in tremendous form. He will be very, very important for India's chances." When asked about his favourites, the former captain picked Pakistan alongside India, Australia and England as the four semifinalists in the upcoming World Cup, saying their records in world tournaments in England is remarkable.
The World Cup begins on May 30th in England and India start their campaign versus South Africa on the 5th of june at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground.
