India is becoming the favorite in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, but not everyone believes that. Those that don’t believe it are their upcoming opponents in West Indies, as they feel a defeat of the favorite is indeed possible. Don’t miss any of the action in this huge match and catch it all streaming live online.
So far, India is 3-0 and that includes victories over Pakistan, South Africa, and United Arab Emirates. All three victories have been rather dominating so far, and India is showing that they won’t be an easy team to take down.
As for West Indies, they are 2-2 in the World Cup through four matches. They were upset in their opening match by four wickets to Ireland. West Indies did get big victories over Pakistan (by 150 runs) and Zimbabwe (by 73 runs) to keep pace in this pool play format. Their huge loss to South Africa by 257 runs was very disheartening though.
Indian Express is reporting that India has jumped out to the front of the pack and is truly looking like the favorite. Former Australia left-arm spinner, Brad Hogg, says he is totally in awe of how India has played so far in the World Cup.
“That extra pressure on the field is going to help their bowlers and batters. That’s why I feel they are starting to become the favorites for the World Cup.”
He is incredibly impressed with their fielding and thinks they have started to bowl better in Australia conditions. Getting used to the weather and Australian fields does not spell good news for other teams, as India is talented enough to begin things.
BD News 24 does feel as if West Indies can pull the upset of India, but it won’t be easy. Many are hoping West Indies to be a strong challenge for the Indian team, and that the contest is competitive.
