KOLKATA - Former cricket legends like Steve Waugh and Vivian Richards say that the team with the best fielding side will have the highest chances of winning the World Cup that begins Feb 19.
“Catching, run-outs will play important roles. Whichever side winning the World Cup will have the best fielding. The best fielding side has the most chances of winning,” said former Australian skipper Steve Waugh while addressing an event called “Power Play” here Sunday.
The event was also attended by former cricket legends like Vivian Richards, Kapil Dev and Sourav Ganguly.
“I think India has improved. I feel people like Gary Kirsten should be given credit for that. They have changed the whole psyche. Today the guys are more committed on the field. I also feel that the good fielding unit will win this world cup,” said Vivian Richards when asked to comment on the fielding abilities of the current Indian side.
