With MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli is likely to benefit a lot in making decisions on the field.

At a recent press conference held in Mumbai on Tuesday, Kohli stressed that they are entering in the tournament with a balanced and a strong side.

“We are going into the World Cup as a balanced and strong side. You saw in the IPL as well. All the players in the squad are in great form and playing really well. I think from that point of view, we just expect ourselves to play the best cricket we can,” Kohli said.

The Men in Blue will spark its World Cup campaign against South Africa at Hampshire Bowl, Southampton on July 5.
