The fielding level of the Indian team has become very good. He said of the World Cup, "India, England, Australia and New Zealand teams can reach the semifinals, there are many match-winning players in all four teams, England will benefit from its domestic conditions, its batting and bowling are strong. He has an all-rounder of up to nine numbers, though he will also be under pressure from the domestic audience. "
Rhodes said, "The most balanced team is of India. He has the best batsman, good all-rounder and fantastic finisher. With Kuldeep Yadav, Yuswendra Chahal, Bumrah, there is variety in bowling too. Australia have won four World Cups. It will not be easy to beat The New Zealand team has a good combination of experienced and young players. In addition to these four, the West Indies should not be underestimated.

Rhodes said about good fielding, "Every fielder on the field has to think that every ball is coming towards you. I always used to think so and could get good fielding. Australia has always been better in fielding. D. Africa is not too weak. Team India will be like the surprise package for most of the fielding this time. Therefore, it is difficult for me to name someone in the field of best fielding. "
'This World Cup will be high scoring'
They said, '350+ scores are getting cheaper. There are also double hundreds in ODIs. This World Cup will also be high scoring. This time South Africa will lack AB de Villiers. It is impossible to fulfill their lack. He was also a wonderful batsman along with the finest batsman. Had he not been able to bat well, then he would have been able to finish it by fielding. They used to save only 15-20 runs. "
'South Africa failed due to small mistakes'
Rhodes said, "The South African team has always emerged as a strong contender. But due to very small mistakes we failed. In the 1992 World Cup semi-finals, we lost 10 minutes due to rain After that, Brian Lara scored a century in 1996, in 1999, a simple mistake made between Lance Klusener and Alan Donald in the semi-final was made by the team.
