Former West Indian great Brian Lara said that he believes India and England are among the better equipped teams heading to the World Cup and they will definitely make it to the semifinals. “I think the key to performing in England is - knowing your game, knowing your limitations, and playing accordingly, assessing conditions very quickly. England is all about how quickly you assess the conditions,” says Brian Lara. The prince from the Caribbean said, "The key battle in cricket is always the mental battle. That's something you cannot show. But it's there. Always. Simmering. Playing on your mind. The team that wins that, wins half the battle. You see guys with average technique score tons of runs and guys with amazing techniques going nowhere. That's because mentally they're not there." Brian Lara also praised India's new breed of fast bowlers including Jasprit Bumrah and said that they are very impressive.
