The 13th edition of the ICC ODI World Cup is being held in India. However, this season is more controversial than other seasons. There is a lot of criticism about the multiple schedule changes, visa complications for cricketers and media workers or the outfield.
Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer and 2011 World Cup winner Virender Sehwag made an explosive comment. Which is being discussed a lot.
There is a lot of criticism about the pitch in Chennai, the venue of the India-Australia match. The Indian media itself is claiming that the wicket has been made for the convenience of the host team. According to analysts, Chennai’s pitch in that day’s match behaved like the fourth day of a Test match. The five-time world champion Australian batters have eaten in the well of death. Cummins had no answer to the spin of India’s two spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav.
Indian media outlet Times Now reported on Cricbuzz that Sehwag commented that India will have an advantage in preparing the pitch for the World Cup. Sehwag also believes that there is financial gain for ICC if India wins. That is why ICC will want India to win.
Sehwag claims, ‘ICC will help India in this World Cup. Indians are preparing the pitch for the World Cup. When India play semi finals or finals, the pitch will be made as they like. ICC knows that if India is at the end of this competition, people will come to the ground, watch the game. That’s why India has the highest chance of winning the World Cup.
