Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly on Thursday said that India has played good cricket in the last couple of months, which makes them the favorites to win the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup in England. "India are the favorites. The team was playing some good cricket over the last few months. They prepare for the World Cup," Ganguly said on the sidelines of an event.
India will face South Africa in their opening match of the World Cup on June 5. Ganguly also gave his take on whether India should play Pakistan in the World Cup post the Pulwama attack. India is set to play against Pakistan in the World Cup on June 16 in Manchester. "This is a decision ICC will have to take. I think India will have a tough stance which is quite natural and you have to deal with it. Anyway, bilateral ties don't happen so we will have to wait," he said.
