Presence of wicket-takers in the middle will play a crucial role in World Cup: Rahul Dravid

Virat Kohli led team India is eager to return home with the World Cup trophy.The team will head into the competition as one of the favourites with the likes of England and Australia. The Men in Blue have one of the best top orders in world cricket at the moment in Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Kohli but what sets the team apart is a formidable bowling attack capable of taking down any batting line-up on their day.Former Skipper Rahul Dravid believes India have wicket-taking bowlers in their ranks which will benefit them at the World Cup.

Dravid believes the presence of wicket-takers in the middle will play a crucial role in the team's success in England and Wales. He told PTI, "In a World Cup, I believe, having experienced some of the conditions in England last year with the A tour, it would be a high scoring World Cup. And in a high scoring WC, having bowlers who can take wickets in the middle will be very important. I think India is lucky in that regard.”

Dravid further added, "People like (Jasprit) Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal... (We have) got bowlers who can take wickets. Teams that are taking wickets through those middle-overs in those high scoring games have a better chance of restricting the opposition.”

India are currently the 2nd ranked ODI side in the world and have produced results under Kohli both at home and away.
