The current series of New Zealand has been quite interesting for India as it gave a booster for the upcoming games. The whole team is performing exceptionally well in the fields of bowling, batting, fielding. Starting from Rohit Sharma to the 11th player everybody is trying to give his 100%.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni with Virat Kohli

If we talk about experience then team does not has too many experienced players like Virendra Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan but new players have also got enough learning from seniors and time. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan may hold a couple of runs in the top orders. After that Captain Virat Kohli will continue his run machine which is on fire now. He has been practicing too much because winning a world cup is not a nightmare. He has a lot of responsibilities on his shoulders in fact, the wishes of millions of Indians is onto him. No. 4 position seems to be doubtful now as still, the search is going on for this position. Either K .L. Rahul, Ajinkya Rahane or some other youngster is expected to hold this position.

M. S. Dhoni, the senior-most player so far is guiding and making strong relations between players because internal confidence is the biggest power to win any big game. A lot of pressure is there on every player. The comeback of Dhoni in his wonderful form is a matter of great pleasure for everyone. It may bring a lot of positiveness in the entire team.
