The ODI World Cup 2023 will start from October 5. Before this World Cup, West Indies legendary batsman Chris Gayle has made a big comment about Indian star batsman Virat Kohli. He said that he did not get a chance to believe that Virat would not come out of his poor form and become the top run-scorer in the World Cup. In fact, both Gayle and Virat have played for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL.
India will be under pressure
Chris Gayle, known as ‘Universe Boss’, called Virat Kohli a mentally and physically strong cricketer. Also, he also said that Virat will dominate the World Cup in India. He said, “Not only Virat, every player goes through such periods. Hard times don’t last long. However, strong players last longer. Virat is mentally and physically strong. He will maintain the same rhythm and dominate in the World Cup.”
Meanwhile, Gayle also said that India will be under pressure. Because, they will enter the One Day World Cup 2023 (ODI World Cup) as strong contenders at home.
Big loss not to win ICC trophy
Gayle comments on India’s failure to win ICC trophies. He said, “I know that India has not won the ICC trophy for a long time. Same is the case with us. We last won the ICC trophy in 2016. In this case, the Indian team will be under pressure. Because, this time they are going to play an ICC tournament in their own country.”
ICC Trophy won by India in 2013
The Indian team won the ODI World Cup in 2011 under the leadership of MS Dhoni. After that, the Indian team won the 2013 Champions Trophy under Dhoni’s leadership. India reached the finals of the T20 World Cup in 2014, Champions Trophy in 2017, World Test Championship in 2021 and 2023. However, the team lost in the finals of all the four major tournaments.
The Indian team will begin their ODI World Cup 2023 campaign against Australia on October 8 in Chennai. India vs Pakistan match will be played in Ahmedabad on October 15. (Universe boss chris gayle lauds at cricketer virat kohli for upcoming odi world cup)
