Kapil Dev Highlights India's World Cup Preparation and Pressure Handling

Kapil Dev Highlights India’s World Cup Preparation and Pressure Handling. Kapil Dev, India’s 1983 World Cup-winning captain, stated that how the Rohit Sharma-led team handles the pressure of being the hosts and expected to win the upcoming ICC event at home will be a big element in how they perform in the World Cup 2023.

India will be looking to add another World Cup trophy to their collection after a 12-year absence, as the ICC World Cup 2023 will be held from October 5 to November 19. MS Dhoni lifted the Champions Trophy in England in 2013, the last time India won an ICC trophy.

However, Kapil Dev stated that India will join the 2023 ICC World Cup as clear favourites. “I’m not sure how it will turn out. The World Cup team has yet to be announced. As has been the case for a long time, India will always enter a tournament as the favourite. It all boils down to how the squad deals with the pressures from all sides.

We’ve won a World Cup at home, and I’m confident that the team, whoever is chosen, can do it again. “A World Cup is coming in four years, and I hope the players will be fully prepared,” remarked Kapil during the Karnataka Golf Association’s launch of the Golf Fitting Centre.

Given the quantity of cricket the players play in this era, Kapil believes workload and injury management should be prioritized. Kapil Dev, who played 131 Tests and 225 ODIs for India, never missed a game due to injury.

However, some Indian players, particularly bowlers, have recently broken down, including Deepak Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, and Prasidh Krishna, to name a few.

“My time was different because we didn’t play as much cricket.” These players have been playing cricket for about ten months. So, in order to avoid injuries, you must manage your body. “Everyone’s body is different, and they will need individual plans to maintain their fitness,” added Kapil.

He also discussed the current situation of the West Indies team, which failed to qualify for the 2017 World Cup after winning the tournament’s first two editions in 1975 and 1979.

“It’s heartbreaking to see the West Indies not participating in the World Cup.” It’s difficult to fathom an ODI series without them. They have produced so many outstanding players. “I’m not sure what’s bothering them right now, but hopefully they’ll make a comeback,” the renowned all-rounder said.
