“India are going to go into the World Cup as favourites – and I think it is justified. They are a really strong team, they have a lot of depth in their squad as well and have all bases covered. We’re on a different journey at the moment than we were going into the 2019 50-over World Cup,” Eoin Morgan was quoted as saying in ICC’s media release.
