It happens once in four years, connecting different countries and millions of fans together. Yes, I’m talking about the World Cup. This time ten nations will come together to support their country. The 2019 World Cup is to be played in England and Wales. The World Cup is the most awaited moment for all the fans around the globe; tears would be shed, hearts would be broken and spirits will be lifted as nations battle for the trophy.
After the Lok Sabha Elections 2019, now the eyes of India are on the World Cup. 2019 has been a memorable year so far for India as the rivalry between India, Pakistan could be clearly seen, which forced people to get on the ground and demand abandonment of India and Pakistan World Cup match. But the demand of the people couldn’t be fulfilled and in return, assurance was given to BCCI from ICC that the players’ safety would be well taken care of.
India has been victorious two times in bringing World Cup home i.e. in 1983 and 2011. Looking into the year 2019, after the win of the most cherished leader of India, now the fans are waiting for the World Cup.
The World Cup is starting from 30 May 2019 and the first match of India is to be held on 5th June 2019 with South Africa. As said by the Indian cricket team captain India-Pakistan match is the most anticipated match and the scenario is totally different from other matches. The match between India and Pakistan is to be played on 16th June in Manchester on Sunday.
A big change that would be seen is in Indian Jersey. According to reports. India will have an orange jersey. But it’s yet to be confirmed by ICC.
The warm-up matches have been started and it would be refreshing to see KL Rahul opening and giving justice to the position allotted. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are the actual openers of the Indian cricket team and recently Rohit Sharma, Captain of Mumbai Indians in Indian Premier League brought back the trophy for the fourth time. This is the time where vice-captain Rohit Sharma needs to prove it again and play all the matches with great zeal and enthusiasm.
All the players are well motivated by their performances in the Indian Premier League and it would be great to see them flourishing in England and making the nation proud.
It’s time to tie the seat belts, cross our fingers and support our nation.
