ICC World Cup: 'Any team can beat anyone' Virat Kohli refuses to brand India as favourites

The 2019 ICC World Cup is around the corner and the fans are sporting their respective country. Although India and hosts England are being touted as the two favourites for this big tournament as far as the Indian skipper Virat Kohli is concerned, there are no outright favourites for the title as all the top sides have the quality to go the distance.

The ODI series against Australia ended in a 2-3 defeat for the Men in Blue, a result that has started to worry both the fans and experts of Indian cricket. Kohli, however, is still confident of his side pulling off their A game in the quadrennial extravaganza.

The India and England are currently  the ICC World No. 2 and No. 1 sides respectively, but Kohli's men were undone by a spirited Aussie side, led by Aaron Finch. With David Warner and Steve Smith yet to return after serving their 1-year suspensions, the Kangaroos could once again become a team capable enough to defend their title.

Addresing to the press conference Virat Kohli said, "Honestly, every team at the World Cup is a threat. Anyone who gets on a roll at a World Cup, it's very, very difficult to stop that team.

Indian Skipper go on saying,  "I don't think any team starts the World Cup as favourites. Any team is dangerous. You see how the West Indies has come along. They are going to be a serious threat at the World Cup as well because of the balance that they've been able to crack.”
