2015 World Cup - India finish league with clean slate

India not only made it 6-0 by beating Pakistan but also completed a clean slate of six wins in the league stage by winning against Zimbabwe. This time, the chase was harder and the top-order slumped to give a chance for Raina and MS Dhoni to put on a large partnership. They turned back the clock to replay the chases they have done over years in a clinical fashion, hastening the end with big strikes.

The Indian spinners suffered against the Zimbabwe team while the pace bowlers not only picked wickets but also bowled in a miserly fashion. This should have given a good feeling to the Indian think-tank. With the larger grounds in plan for the next knock-out rounds, the spinners will come back to the fore.

The Indian team have tested to the maximum extent in these six matches - they look to be well-primed for the next stages. Next is Bangladesh in quarterfinal at MCG. Form and History suggests that India should go to the semifinals.
