Anil Kumble’s Comparison of India’s World Cup Squads
India is doing really well in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, just like they did in the 2003 World Cup. Anil Kumble, a former Indian spinner, talked about how the two squads are similar in some ways. He mentioned that the balance of the 2003 squad was outstanding, and it’s somewhat similar to the 2023 squad. Anil Kumble also talked about the left-armers in both squads and how both the Rahuls kept wickets.
Anil Kumble mentioned the core senior group in the 2003 World Cup, which included himself, Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, and the coach John Wright. He expressed that it was an honor to be part of that core group and to be part of a World event where India dominated every team except the champions Australia.
India is unbeaten in this World Cup and is just a few steps away from winning their third title to be the second most successful team in the World in terms of most ICC titles. This World Cup has seen a different Indian team in which every member has contributed in some way. The Men In Blue have dominated in every aspect, and their campaign has been nothing short of amazing. Hopefully, India will end the long wait for an ICC trophy by winning the most coveted one.
