1. Win the toss and bat
Of the 41 games completed in World Cup 2019, 27 were won by teams who were the first to succeed. Given the current shape of the top three in India, Indian captain Virat Kohli would not mind asking his men to put a challenging score on the board before releasing his bowlers. The burning summer has had an impact on the fields, but the volatile English weather has shown many shades. Rain is predicted for Manchester on Tuesday, and that too can play a role in what the team that wins the toss decides to do.
2. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul have a good outing
K.L. Rahul has etched scores of 57, 30, 48, 0, 77, 111 against Pakistan, Afghanistan, the West Indies, England, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in the current World Cup, while Rohit Sharma has plunged himself into a frenzy and five hundred has gathered already. India will once again focus on the opening duo.
3. Middle order comes to the party
Rohit, Rahul and Kohli scored most of the runs and it is time for the middle order to flex his muscles. Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant did reasonably well and the intention is that Dinesh Karthik goes one step further. It never goes further than M.S. Dhoni to shine, especially when things are difficult.
4. Go back to Dhoni to anchor the middle order
Dhoni must bring his wealth of experience to the game. Maybe he will turn the clock back like a batsman. Dhoni is still vital for the team and he put out a scorching cameo (a 14-ball 27) against Australia and a measured 34 of 46 deliveries in the opening bout involving South Africa. Kohli and Co. hope for more of the same.
5. Run amok in the last overs
Pandya and Pant could help the team with a commanding total by launching those mighty hoicks in the last 10 overs. Despite the basis of Rohit and Kohli, among others, India & # 39; s batting match showed signs of a hissing result towards the end of the inning.
6. Release Bumrah in shorter bursts
In the early games, Bumrah bowled short and was vulnerable to cutting and pulling. But as the campaign progressed, his penetrating spells returned. Bumrah & # 39; s 17 wickets against an amazing economy of 4.48 are a testament to the value he brings to the team, both with the new and the old ball. Against Bangladesh, when Mohammad Saifuddin and Sabbir Rahman threatened to take the game away from India, he broke the score by cleaning up Rahman before claiming three to finish four for 55 of his 10.
7. Shami at death
Shami, despite his strange expensive spells against England and Bangladesh, is Kohli's go-to man with the new ball. Bhuvaneswar Kumar is back in the mix after a hamstring smile and the composition of the team will depend on the weather conditions on the match day. Shami, bowling with intent and pace, has already put a hat trick in the bag. Kings XI head coach, Mike Hesson, who has worked closely with Shami during the IPL, thinks the 28-year-old can use more variations in survival to be effective.
8. Kuldeep and Chahal have to rediscover their mojo
Kuldeep and Chahal, India & # 39; s wrist spin duo, were hammered for 160 runs in their combined 20 overs against England, with Chahal & # 39; s 0/88 in 10 overs being the worst figures of an Indian bowler in the World Cup . Kuldeep was dropped for the next game against Bangladesh, while Chahal was again taken for points. It is absolutely crucial that the two spinners find their rhythm before the important knockout game.
9. Leading from the front
Captain Virat Kohli has so far gained 442 points in the tournament and has beaten five consecutive half centuries. He also became the fastest to score 11,000 points in ODI & # 39; s and the fastest to 20,000 international runs. The flamboyant right-handed man still has to turn his starts into a big hundred. Indian fans are convinced that he is big and what a better phase than the end of the company.
10. Rub the green
Those within the edges early in the turns, half the chances and the close run-outs. Good teams create their own happiness, but part of it always comes without trying.
