The Indian team has already started preparations for the 2019 World Cup. They are playing a number of ODI matches. In a bid to get the combination right for the marquee event slated to take place in the United Kingdom.
Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, feels that the string of matches will help players to get into the groove. Players like MS Dhoni, who only play limited-overs games will get the momentum for the tournament.
“This coming season gives us an opportunity to define roles for players and give them time to execute it,” Kohli said. “So that for the World Cup, we know exactly what one player needs to do in certain situations.”
“And it helps someone like MS Dhoni also because he doesn’t play Test cricket anymore,” he added. “This long streak of matches will help him be in touch with the international games, find some momentum and stick to it.”
