Former Australia left-arm spinner Brad Hogg is in awe of the current Indian cricket team’s fielding abilities and feels the defending champion is a “big tournament team” and has become the favourite to lift the World Cup.

“The thing which impressed me most about India is their fielding. The time when I was playing we really felt we can get some extra runs on the field, we can take them on in the boundary,” Hogg said.

“But we saw against South Africa the other night, they had two crucial run outs of (AB) de Villiers and (David) Miller and turn the game around. It took the game away from South Africa.

“That extra pressure on the field is going to help their bowlers and batters. That’s why I feel they are starting to become the favourites for the World Cup.”
