Vivian Richards, West Indies cricket legend has named Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team a “powerful force” but he feels that India will face problem defending their cricket World Cup title due to their “inconsistent” weak bowling. 

Viv was quoted as saying in his International Cricket Council column: “India is a powerful force at this point in time with three wins out of three matches. Its batting is always its strong point and it is looking good. Its bowling is looking good too, as good as anything we have seen so far from them on this long tour. But even then, it is not consistent enough and sooner or later, that factor will come to play. That is an open chance for any opposition team to pounce on.”

India drove their car smoothly sp far in the tournament but the road ahead is only going to get more difficult as they face a maverick West Indies at the WACA. Viv said India’s crusade may hit a tough patch soon. He added that it is not to undermine what India has got in this International Cricket Council World Cup so far with three consecutive wins, particularly since its tour of Australia did not go so well.

Viv said that its recent outputs have been good, but all-inclusive it has been inconsistent at best despite a huge quantity of talent in its team. For this reason only, he thinks it will have trouble defending their precious title. 

Chris Gayle has already demonstrated his might with a glorious 215 runs against Zimbabwe and Viv said that the Jamaican batsmen have that potential in them to take on the Indian bowlers. He thinks the West Indies’ batting order is enough talented to take an opportunity against such so called inconsistent India bowling attack. While India is comfortably positioned in Pool B, West Indies has to make up points for qualifying in the next round.
