The ICC World Cup 2019 will start from May 30 in England.
India are ranked number two side in the world as they enter the mega tournament as one of the favorites.
The Virat Kohli-led side has minimal issues, with several match winners in the ranks.
The Men in Blue, who have enjoyed a fantastic run in ODIs, can win the trophy.
India have the best top order. The likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are the lethal weapons of this side.
Dhawan and Rohit often give India the desired starts. They have scored more than 4,000 ODI runs together as a pair.
Kohli is definitely the best ODI batsman in the world.
The three players seldom fail together and can score emphatically.
MS Dhoni is probably India's X factor, this term. He will anchor the middle order and can finish off the games when needed.
Dhoni's experience will come handy during crunch situations.
Moreover, one can always see Kohli going to Dhoni to seek his suggestions.
Dhoni's keeping skills are the best in the world and he would be a massive help to the Indian spinners.
India's middle order might look shaky but has the required experience.
Vijay Shankar, Kedar Jadhav and Dinesh Karthik are solid customers.
Jadhav and DK can be rotated and both have maturity to handle pressure situations.
Shankar has sound technique and he can be counted upon at number four.
Jadhav's wicket-taking abilities with his part-time spin will be useful. These factors will also aid India.
Hardik Pandya can be India's trump card, as he can contribute across the three departments.
Teams with quality all-rounders will do well and Pandya is one of the best. He can also come in as the third pacer.
His hard-hitting can change the complexion of any game.
Pandya is enjoying a great form in IPL and would look to continue in the same vein.
India have one of the best bowling quartets in ODIs and they will extract the maximum out of English conditions.
Wrist-spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have been dominating matches. They will look to weave their magic.
Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami are world class pacers.
Their ability in crucial junctures will give India the lift.
JB in particular is top notch.
