Melbourne: Given their weak bowling and unimpressive fielding even the high quality batsmen cannot save India’s World Cup campaign, says former Australian great Dean Jones. He says winning the coveted trophy will remain just a dream for Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men.
“The three main common denominators consistent with all World Cup champion teams are: Your top four batsmen must be of a high quality.
They must have the technique to play the new ball, as well as have the power and stroke play during powerplays. Your top four bowlers must be of high quality, able to absorb pressure and bowl defensively in powerplays. If you can’t field, don’t bother turning up!” Jones said in his column for ‘The Age’.” All this taken into account, I do not believe India will win the World Cup with its current form.
