What's Your Prediction for Top Indian Players in World Cup 2019?

You cannot underestimate even a single player in their squad. India produces more cricket talent than any other county in the world and they have selected the best of them for the biggest stage of all.

Virat and Co. have become a nightmare already and no team would want to face them in the competition. As per winning percentage in Test matches, Kohli is India's most successful Test captain, having won more than 61% of Test matches. They have depth in their batting and they have all types of bowlers in their arsenal as well. India has the most balanced squad among all the teams and they are the favourites to lift the cup this year. But here we have shortlisted three most important players for India in the world cup.

1. Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli is considered as the greatest ever player to play the sports of Cricket. The Indian captain has no weakness and is considered as the god of chasing. He has developed a habit of scoring centuries and no bowling line-up can create problems for him. Under Kohli's captaincy, India was unbeaten in 19 Test matches, starting from a 3–0 series win over New Zealand and ending with a 2–1 series win over Australia. An unbeaten streak of winning 9 consecutive Test series as of Dec 2017, starting with a 2–1 series win over Sri Lanka. After Australia and South Africa, India became third to have won their most recent Test series simultaneously against all the other Test-playing nations. Virat has scored 10843 runs in 219 innings with an average of 59.57 and with 41 centuries and 49 half-centuries.

2. Shikhar Dhawan

First Indian batsman to score a century before lunch of the first day in a Test match. He is the quickest to reach 1000, 2000, 3000 ODI runs. Most runs in ICC Champions Trophy 2013 and 2017. He is the fastest batsman to reach 1000 runs in ICC tournament. Highest run-scorer of Unimoni Asia Cup (2018). Most runs in a Calendar year in T20i's by a batsman (2018).

Shikhar Dhawan never disappoints in an overseas tournament. He is a run machine and he doesn’t care if the pitch is supporting spinners of if it’s a green grassy pitch.

Dhawan has an average of 44.62 in ODI’s and has scored 5355 runs in 127 innings with 16 tons and 27 half-centuries. He is definitely the most dangerous opener in the world on English tracks.

3. MS Dhoni

His captaincy skills and that makes him and Indian team a nightmare for other teams. One of the finest finishers the world has ever seen. Bagged Padma Shri, India's fourth-highest civilian award, in 2009. Honoured with Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, India's highest honour given for achievement in sports, 2007–08. Degree of Honorary Doctorate by De Montfort University in August 2011. Padma Bhushan, India's third-highest civilian award in the Republic of India, 2018 and many more.

MS Dhoni is one of the finest players and the greatest captain of all. He has won every possible tournament with India and although he’s not their captain any more we all know he is still the mastermind of the Indian team. His skills and his brain is the reason what makes him the most dangerous and most important player of the Indian team.

He has scored 10500 runs in 289 innings with an average of 50.72 with 10 tons and 71 half-centuries and these stats are crazy for someone who bats at No.6 or No.7.
