The first time since the 1992 World Cup, the forthcoming ICC tournament will feature the extremely challenging round robin format. With all teams scheduled to play against each other once, the wear and tear and the notion of consistency will be crucially important in determining which side surpasses others.
Commenting on the difficulties that await his team, Indian skipper Virat Kohli opined that this will be the toughest World Cup he has participated in thus far. Having represented India in the 2011 and 2015 World Cups, Kohli felt even the weaker teams this time around posed a tremendous threat.
“Personally, it will probably be the most challenging World Cup I have been part of because of the format and also the strength of all the teams. If you look at Afghanistan from 2015 to now, they are a completely different side. Any team can upset anyone,” Kohli claimed.
