Cricket: India has some serious match winners going to World Cup Steve Smith

Prepared Australia hitter Steve Smith says a “awesome” Indian group is loaded with some genuine match victors going into the T20 World Cup, suggesting that Virat Kohli’s side will be one of the top picks to lift the title.

India pounded Australia by eight wickets in a warm-up game with Rohit Sharma (60), K L Rahul (39) and Suryakumar Yadav (38) all getting a few runs under their belts.

Kohli didn’t lead the side yet came out to bowl as India were all the while sorting out their 6th bowling choice.

“They’re an awesome side, they have all bases covered and some genuine match victors in there,” Smith was cited as saying by ‘Sydney Morning Herald’.

“They’ve clearly been playing in these conditions during the most recent few months with the IPL so they’ll be utilized to that,” he added.

Smith himself scored 57 off 48 balls in the game, crossing the 50-run mark interestingly since he struck 86 for NSW against Queensland in March.

“It was great to invest a touch of energy in the center once more. It’s never simple when you’re three down.

“You need to reconstruct for a period there and I figured we did that quite well. The associations with Stoin (Marcus Stoinis) and Maxi (Glenn Maxwell) were clearly significant.”

Smith, who had given the voyages through the West Indies and Bangladesh because of an elbow injury, said he is feeling “completely ready to go at this point”.

He included in two games for the Delhi Capitals in the second leg of the as of late finished up IPL.

“I haven’t clearly played such a large number of games with the IPL yet I’ve invested a ton of energy in the nets and becoming accustomed to the conditions, which has been great,” he said.
