“We are still playing well…we are reaching the finals, the semifinals,” the former cricketer Kapil Dev added.
The Indian team starts the biggest cricketing event on October 8 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The tournament starts in October when the last World Cup finalist meet in Narendra Modi Stadium. England and New Zealand kickstart the tournament in Ahmedabad.
