Southampton: Leading India at the ICC World Cup 2019 is a “matter of great pride”, said Virat Kohli as he spoke to the media ahead of the team’s opening game against the injury-hit South Africa in Southampton. Kohli also said that he was feeling bad for Dale Steyn who was ruled out of the tournament due to shoulder injury. The skipper also said it was advantage for India to start the 10-team competition late. World Cup 2019 started on May 30 but India’s opening match is only on June 5.
