Jagran Post Network): The Jagranpost brings a garland of good luck to team India for the upcoming Cricket World Cup battle as India is the first team to kick off the World cup fixture series.
With just only 1 day to go for the upcoming mega cricket event ICC World Cup 2011, team India is all set for “Cricket Mahayudh”.
Dhoni’s team has to be calm and composed on the field and keep on dominating on the opposition.
Especially when men in blue will be playing in the Asian Sub continent, so they can rule on opponents.
Men in blue should not feel any pressure for Word Cup on the field, that can led to team demoralisation.
India has already pulled up their socks with confidence and boosted up after two consecutive winning in the World Cup warm up matches against Australia and New Zealanders.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni would be playing his first world cup as a captain and would follow the deeds of World Cup stars—Kapil Dev the stunning all rounder and 1983 history maker, Clive Lloys the inimitable Caribbean flair of his time, Imran Khan the perfect mix of youth & experience, Arjun Ranatunga the intelligent and pioneer veteran in ODI format, Alan Border the tailor made batsman, Steve Waugh the inspiration for all captains. These all will be the brainwaves for our skipper.
These brainwave’s legendary performances can help Dhoni & co in this mega event, where all the Indian fans are waiting for 1983 recap.
Kapil Dev, the intangible all rounder of 1983 history will be hoping for the second win after 28 years of thirst.
The main competition that Dhoni and co can get is from two consecutive World Cup winner Ricky Ponting. Let put the Kangaroos back into their hut this time as Punter and party must be eyeing for the hattrick.
India have already clinched for being the World No1 team in test cricket and now it is time to break the 1983 jinx specially when they are playing in their own nation.
The experienced spinner Harbhajan Singh and the youngster R Ashwin have the ability to change the game any point of time.
India has devastating batsmen—Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, and Yuvraj Singh, who can be a problem for the opponent team.
As Mahi’s team would be playing in their own nation, so that would be a plus point and can take the benefit from Indian pitches.
The batsman Virat Kohli who is emerging as a second the great wall of India, Rahul Dravid can infuriate the rivals with his witty batting in the middle order.
Yusuf Pathan, who is also known as Indian flamboyant can be dangerous for other teams and has the ability to change the game any time with his dazzling shots.
As master blaster Sachin Tendulkar most probably will be playing his sixth and the last World Cup, so this would be his extreme goal to clinch the World Cup for India.
