Whoever beat India will win World Cup 2023: England Legend makes bold claim
Ex English Captain Michael Vaughan was in awe of the Indian team after KL Rahul’s men scored 399 for five against Australia on Sunday at Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore.
Michael Vaughan, the former England captain, recently commented on India's performance in the second ODI against Australia, where they posted an impressive score of 399/5. Vaughan was particularly impressed with India's batting, highlighting Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer's centuries, as well as KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav's half-centuries.
Vaughan expressed his belief that India possesses a well-balanced batting and bowling unit, and the only thing that could potentially hinder them is the pressure of high expectations. He stated that, in his view, the team that manages to defeat India stands a great chance of winning the World Cup in 2023.
Following the early dismissal of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Gill and Iyer's partnership of 200 runs for the second wicket set India in a commanding position. Suryakumar Yadav further accelerated the innings with a rapid 24-ball fifty, injecting momentum into the Indian batting display. He notably hit four consecutive sixes off his Mumbai Indians teammate, Cameron Green.
It’s quite clear to me .. Whoever beats #India will win the WC .. 👍 #INDvAUS .. India’s batting line up on Indian pitches is ridiculous .. Plus they have all the bowling options covered .. it’s the only the pressure of the burden that could stop them .. 👍— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) September 24, 2023
