‘They have the best batsman in world cricket right now in Virat Kohli. He’s backed up by numerous different batsmen, particularly Rohit Sharma.
‘Sharma must be within the all-time XI in one-day cricket. They’ve good finishers in MS Dhoni and their bowling may be very robust, with Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
‘They’re not a one-dimenstional crew – they’ve good seamers and good spin choices.
‘They use the powerplay nicely with Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. These two go arduous and go nicely and set it up for Kohli.
‘They chase as well as any team in the world and they travel well in white-ball cricket.’

‘You need your spin options but India’s actual advance during the last two years has been of their seam bowling division.
‘Bumrah is a fabulous bowler who bowls at the start and at the death. Kumar will be a real handful and their spinners are very good. I’d be very cautious of India at this World Cup.’
