Fixtures of ICC World Cup 2015 and chances of India


  • Millions of cricket fans are eager to enjoy the spicy encounter between the most competitive cricket teams of the world come this World Cup 2015. The ball by ball changing equation, emerging new records, the word-war on the field, the controversial decisions, issues related to bowling action, and the crucial fast tracks posing threat to the teams from Asia, all such elements converts this tournament into a battle field.

    As we all know, the 2015 ICC cricket World Cup is to be played in New Zealand and Australia from 14th February to 29th March 2015.There will be 42 group matches, followed by 4 Quarter final and two semi finals. Co host New Zealand will take on Sri Lanka in the opening match at Christchurch on 14th February.

    The final will be played on 29th March in Melbourne cricket ground which is to be witnessed by around 1,00,000 spectators.

    As a few of former legends of the game have already opined and also based on speculations going around, in its all likely hood, Australia and India might be fighting for the title in the finals. Although South Africa and England will also be fighting for their prestige, especially on those pitches suitable for their cricketers. New Zealand will definitely have the advantage of home ground.

    But by and large, TEAM INDIA is running in best of its form with Virat Kohli coming back to his true colors. With a finisher like Dhoni and striker like Rahane, and stroke player like Dhawan (fingers crossed), Team India looks ready for the show. Collectively, Jadeja and Raina might prove handy with both, the bat and the ball. Honestly, bowling has always been a cause of concern but many of the fans believe that with the exposure of last tour of England and the upcoming tri series, our boys will learn a lot before the World Cup. Umesh Yadav, Shami Ahmed, Bhuvneshwar Kumar will prove to be the key factors in the bowling performance of the team.

    Former Captain Sourav Ganguly has correctly said India have got a good chance of defending the World Cup. They are a very good One-Day International (ODI) side wherever they play. Whether it is Australia or England, they are a top one-day side.
