Mr Bashir also said that if India wins the toss on Wednesday, they should look to bat first and put runs on the board.
“India should take batting first, play well, score 350-400 runs and then there are top Indian bowlers (to defend it),” he said.
Under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, Team India displayed a commanding performance in every match. The Indian team appears well-balanced, with all facets of their game performing at a high level.
On the other hand, New Zealand experienced a rollercoaster journey in the tournament. Despite an impressive beginning, they faced a setback with four consecutive losses. However, the Kane Williamson-led side rebounded with a victory against Sri Lanka in their last match, securing a spot in the semi-finals.
