Nasser Hussain believes that India has the best team to win the World Cup

India’s real advance over the last two years has been in their seam bowling department.

Former England captain and commentator Nasser Hussain said on Saturday that team India has the potential to win the World Cup. The cricketer who played 88 ODIs for England and considered as one of the best English captain, is very much impressed with the current combination of team India.

In an ICC event talking to metro.co.uk, Nasser said, “They have every base covered.”

“They have the best batsman in world cricket right now in Virat Kohli. He’s backed up by various other batsmen, in particular, Rohit Sharma. They have good finishers in MS Dhoni and their bowling is very strong, with Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. They’re no longer a one-dimensional team – they have good seamers and good spin options.”

“They use the powerplay well with Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. Those two go hard and go well and set it up for Kohli. They chase as well as any team in the world and they travel well in white-ball cricket.”

“In England, you need a varied bowling attack. You need your spin options but India’s real advance over the last two years has been in their seam bowling department.”

“(Jasprit) Bumrah is a fabulous bowler who bowls at the start and at the death. (Bhuvneshwar) Kumar will be a real handful and their spinners are very good. I’d be very wary of India at this World Cup.”

The World Cup will begin from 30th May between the host nation England and South Africa. India will start their campaign on 5th June against South Africa exactly the same way they did in 1999.
