The Men in Blue could not cross the final hurdle to lift the World Cup title and fell short in the summit clash against Australia. But this World Cup was historic for the Indian team in a lot of ways. They played some world-class cricket to win ten matches on the trot and qualified for the finals. This team might be the greatest ODI side that India has ever had.
Let’s take a look at the 3 biggest positives for India from their campaign:
1. Fearless Leadership
The biggest takeaway from this World Cup for India would be the fearless leadership and all the credit should go to the coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma. The management along with captain Rohit Sharma led this team without any past baggage. They implemented a new way of playing fearlessly and Captain Rohit Sharma led from the front.
The skipper walked the talk on the field and batted in a way throughout the tournament which alleviated all the doubts and fears that any player might have had. India would remember his leadership in reverential tones as he emerged to be a leader who does what he preaches.
Another positive from this campaign was the stability in the side. In the past, there have been instances where players have suffered because of the insecurity that emerges out of constant chopping and changing in the team combination. But in the last couple of months, we have seen this management bringing a sense of security among the players. This is a great sign for Indian cricket as stability is one of the essential factors to become a successful unit.
3. The Indian Middle Order
The middle order was a perennial cause of concern for Team India in the last few years. Since the departure of MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, and Suresh Raina there were no dependable figures who could lead the Indian middle order on big occasions. But this World Cup has been a success from the middle order’s standpoint. The Indian middle order was delivered throughout the tournament. Players like Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul acted like glue in the middle order that helped India put up big totals.
