Former England skipper Michael Vaughan was all praise for Team India’s performance following their thumping victory over West Indies in their World Cup match in Manchester on Thursday. Vaughan said that the team which manages to beat the Men in Blue will win the coveted trophy on 14 July at the Lord’s in London.
“Will stick to it… Whoever beats India will win the World Cup,” tweeted Vaughan after India defeated Windies by 125 runs.
Will stick to it … Whoever beats India will WIN the World Cup … !!! #CWC19

The two-time world champions India (1983 and 2011) have been in sublime form in the ongoing World Cup and are the only unbeaten team in the tournament so far.
With 11 points (five wins and a rain-washed match) from 6 matches, India are currently placed at the second spot in the points table and have almost booked a berth for themselves in the final 4.
Though the team has been suffering from injuries of its ace players, it could not impact their performance. Some matches have been tight but the Men in Blue have managed to end on the winning side.
Just after Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out of the tournament due to injury, KL Rahul started opening the innings for India. With his scores of 57, 30 and 48 as an opener, Rahul has done a decent job for India.
The Indian team further suffered a blow when fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar received a hamstring injury but his replacement Mohammed Shami came with blazing figures of 4 for 40 and 4 for 16 in the two matches he has played so far.
