Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma and the coaching of Rahul Dravid, the Indian team would not like to make any mistake from here. If there is any mistake or omission, then it can be very heavy on Team India. Till the Asia Cup, the Indian team has been making many mistakes in the name of experiment. He has also suffered because of this. The record 7-time champion Indian team could not even reach the final in the Asia Cup this time.
Indian team’s bad condition in Asia Cup

In such a situation, if the Indian team has to become the World Cup champion, then now any mistake will have to be avoided from here.
