2015 World Cup Will be a Very Open Tournament: Ravi Shastri
Former India cricketer-turned commentator Ravi Shastri feels the 2015 World Cup, to be jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand, will be a very open tournament because of the surfeit of limited overs cricket, including T20 events like IPL.
Regarding India's chances of retaining the crown they won for the second time at home in 2011, Shastri felt that it depended on how mentally and physically fit the players would be, after completing an exhausting tour of Australia where they will play Tests and ODIs against the hosts.
The former player was of the opinion that the IPL has broadened the boundaries of support for the Indian team.
