Pietersen feels subcontinent teams will excel in WC

England’s batting great Kevin Pietersen has made a bold prediction of subcontinent teams dominating the forthcoming World Cup, if the weather conditions are to remain hot for the summer. The World Cup is scheduled to take place from May 30 to July 14 in England and Wales.

Pietersen has hence claimed that if the conditions are to be dry and hot, this will lead to opening up of the cracks in the pitches and aid the Asian teams’ spinners. “It [the World Cup] is going to be weather dependent,” Pietersen told reporters at a gathering.

“Last year was one of the most beautiful English summers since 1976. It was the hottest summer recorded in the UK with hardly any rain at all, conditions were extremely dry. If the conditions are like they were last summer, then I think the subcontinent teams are going to have a massive role to play in the World Cup,” he elaborated on the prospects of success of Asian teams.
