Virat Kohli-led Indian cricket team left for the World Cup 2019, starting on May 30 in England and Wales, on Wednesday. MS Dhoni, who led India to their second World Cup title in 2011, was spotted along with 14 others selected for the World Cup squad in official uniforms at the Mumbai airport.
India will commence their World Cup 2019 campaign against South Africa in Southampton on June 5. However, Virat Kohli’s men will play two warm-up matches before the ICC mega event — against New Zealand at Kennington Oval on Saturday and Bangladesh in Cardiff on Tuesday.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared pictures of India players before the flight to England. “Jet set to go,” the BCCI captioned the pictures.
