Don’t worry so much—that India might be a pacecr short at the World Cup, or that a brittle middle-order doesn’t have the wherewithal to negotiate the yawning mid-overs if exp­osed (as they will) to the elements. Relax and take heart from our boys at the departure lounge in Mumbai. Dhoni, Chahal and Bhuvi are immersed in PUBG, as Pandya and Kohli seem to have an intense confab. Best o’luck, boys!
