Our very own batting legend, Sachin Tendulkar believes that India would win the World Cup in England this summer! He told the media during a summer camp at the Tendulkar Middlesex Global Academy, “The World Cup will be coming to India.”
Tendulkar also inaugurated the pavilion at the MIG Club on the very day, which is now named after him.
Meanwhile, the critics are pining for the England and Australian teams to grab the massive trophy.
The now-retired God of Cricket expects wickets for the tournament, which is set to begin from 30th May, to be batting beauties. Tendulkar said, “I am told, it’s going to be a hot summer. If you see the last time when we played the Champions Trophy, the wickets were superb. When the sun is out and it is hot, the wicket gets really flat. I’m sure they are going to give beautiful tracks to bat on.”
He feels that the batsmen won’t face much difficulty once the sun is out on the field, although the English conditions normally encourage the seamers a bit more.
Talking about the state of the weather, Tendulkar said, “I personally don’t think there will be much difference in the conditions unless there is a heavy cloud cover. When there is a heavy cloud cover, the ball might move around a bit but that happens in any part of the world for some time. I don’t see it happening for a longer duration. Just for a few overs if at all. But if the sun is out, I don’t see too much lateral movement.”
Ahead of the tournament, Captain Virat Kohli, opener KL Rahul and all-rounder Hardik Pandya have struck form in the ongoing IPL and while the World Cup is a 50-over event, Tendulkar feels that the players will adjust well. He added later, “When you perform well in any format it gives you confidence. The players have time to make some adjustments according to the conditions. All of them have played enough cricket to know what to do to improve.”
