Yes ICC world cup will be starting next year in our country India. I think really it will be big events for our country. And now I hope our country can also win this world cup. Because our mostly players are in the form. But the main thinking topics are our bowling department. I can hope that in world cup our bowler make a good perform. Now there are only 4 months to go for starting it. I think it will be last big tournaments for sachin Tendulkar. So I can hope master blaster again will play some good innings.
