Our team has done well so far in World Cup 2023. Batting is excellent, bowling is even better. In such a situation, the road will not be easy for New Zealand in tomorrow’s semi-final. Talking about the 5 main strengths of our team, the first is the batting lineup, which is quite long. Which players would you sack? Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill to Virat Kohli are in the team. After this, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav came out. Then there is Ravindra Jadeja. This is the biggest positive point of Team India. Due to which we have easily won many chasing matches.
Talking about another strength, it is the role of KL Rahul. They can stay and play if necessary. That means he knows how to play the role of an anchor as well. In the first match against Australia, he played a similar role after taking 3 quick wickets. Not only this, he is also adept at showing his hand quickly when needed. In the last match he scored a century against Netherlands in just 62 balls. This is the fastest century by an Indian batsman. With this they have shown that they are ready for any challenge if needed. The third strength is Virat Kohli. He is also a master of the chaser and a master of the finisher. In such a situation, if New Zealand wants to survive in the match, he will have to be dismissed soon. If they survive once they play a big innings. For this reason, Kohli is the batsman who has scored the most runs in the current World Cup with 2 centuries and 5 fifties.
The fourth and biggest strength of the Rohit Sharma-led Indian team is fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah. They are putting pressure on the opposition team right from the start. So far no batsman of any team has been able to play openly against him. Other fast bowlers Mohammad Shami and Mohammad Siraj are benefiting from this. The way Shami has performed so far has proved to be very beneficial for the team. Its line length is also amazing. Overall, the performance of the trio of fast bowlers has been superb so far.
Talking about the fifth strength of Team India, it is spin bowler Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav. Jadeja does not allow the batsmen to play big shots. Its live and length have been good so far. If you get a spin pitch it is not easy to hit. What we can say about Kuldeep, he has increased his pace and is bowling in one spot. The batter can’t even read his hands. Due to which they have become more dangerous. If New Zealand wants to win this match, they will have to face 2 to 3 strengths of Team India. But it is not easy for the Kiwi team considering the home ground. The Indian team has also defeated New Zealand in the league round. In such a situation, the first final of World Cup 2023 is going to be very exciting.
