Before the commencement of the on-going ICC World Cup 2019, Indian skipper, Virat Kohli predicted that teams will defend low scores in the tournament and it will be difficult to post high totals in the latter half of the World Cup.

Recently, the Men in Blue were successful in defending their total after posting 268 runs on board at the end of the first innings. The team managed to win by 125 runs and is currently the only unbeaten team in the tournament so far. Prior to this, India defended their low scoring total of 224 runs against the Afghans on Saturday and won the match by 11 runs. This World Cup witnessed many low-scoring matches contrary to the predicted 500 plus scores in the tournament.

Men in Blue skipper Virat Kohli told the reporters prior to the tournament that it will be as difficult for the teams to chase the total of 260-270 as chasing a 380-370 total in the World Cup. He also mentioned that he doesn’t see a lot of high scoring games happening in the latter half of the tournament and that’s the kind of pressure the World Cup will bring.

On talking about the much awaited 500 plus score in the tournament, the Captain said that the hosts are more obsessed than anyone else to reach that mark. "They (England) seem to be obsessed with getting to 500 before anyone else. They smash it from ball one and for the full 50 overs. Yeah initially, some teams might get on a roll, but you'll see 250 defended as well,” Kohli added.

The Men in Blue will next encounter the England cricket team on Sunday, June 30 at Edgbaston cricket ground.
