Former New Zealand fast bowler Danny Morrison has expressed that India is a tough team to beat in the ICC World Cup 2019 because of the camaraderie MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli share on and off the field.

“Having someone like MS Dhoni there as his predecessor. I love the way they can chat and react. They obviously have a great rapport also with coach Ravi Shastri in the picture. I think he has a great ally in MS Dhoni because we know what he used to produce as a captain in tough situations. That’s why I think India is tough to beat,” Morrison told India Today.

“I would have liked to have Virat relax his captaincy in IPL, just focus on his batting, have a breather, have some downtime. When you are captaining everything, it has to impact you. I think am not alone and other former players who have seen the IPL closely, am saying what some colleagues of mine have said that Virat should have rested in IPL,” said Morrison.
