With seven points out of seven against Sri Lanka on Thursday (November 2), the excitement among Indian cricket fans is: Can they continue their unbeaten run until the night of November 19? It is very similar to Australia, the only other country to do so in both the 2003 and 2007 editions.
Arrogant, yes, but there’s a similar air of invincibility around Rohit Sharma & Co that fuels expectations. We need four more matches to make 11 from 11, but even the best teams will tend to believe the cliché that cricket is a game of magnificent uncertainty.
Australian all-rounder Shane Watson, a member of the 2007 champion team, raised such a possibility in an interview before the Sri Lanka match. ”After (India’s) first two matches it reminded me of Australia’s 2003 and 2007 World Cup teams. These teams had no weaknesses and went undefeated throughout the tournament. They were very dominant and you could see why. No team could uncover them. All the Indian players are doing their best at the moment,’ said Watson, who is now the TV pundit for the tournament’s official broadcasters.
