With the 13th edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup drawing near, former Pakistan captain Intikhab Alam reckoned that the Indian spinners would be their key in the competition. The hosts will begin their campaign against Australia on October 8 in Chennai.
“The way India played in Asia Cup and played the final (decimating Sri Lanka), they look like the team to beat. Their spin attack stands out. Kuldeep is going to play a major role in the tournament. He will test the batters of all teams,” Alam was quoted as saying by India Today.

“There will be pressure, for sure. It depends on how team management treats the players to ensure they focus only on cricket. You get four years to prepare for an event like this. You have to do something special so people remember for you a long time. It is a great opportunity for Babar and Co,” the former cricketer concluded.
