Virat Kohli and his men are in the form of their lives at the moment as we inch closer to the 2019 World Cup slowly but steadily. With a plethora of world-class and promising talents, the Indian team looks the favourite as the countries brace themselves for the mega showdown. It can be safely expected that Virat Kohli’s run of form as a captain and his oozing confidence can take India all the way to the World Cup finals.

However, it will be too early to put our bets on such a statement but a news from says something different. According to a news from Inkhabar, which is doing circles on social media, the ICC World Cup 2019 has already been fixed. And the icing on the cake for the cricket crazy Indian fans is that India has been tipped as the champions.

If this was not enough for you, there is much more to the story. The story suddenly caught the eye of the people when legendary Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni liked the link of the news posted by the news website on its Twitter handle. Now the question that needs to be answered is that whether Dhoni liked it because he found it too funny to resist or there is some truth behind it.

While the news is completely believed to be a hoax, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s like on the tweet has definitely stirred the issue. While we strongly believe Dhoni’s reaction was an act of pun, it might be a possibility that Dhoni liked the news because it predicted India as the winner.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been under the close inspection of national selectors due to his age and the slowness that comes with it. While half of the fans believe that the icon should make way for the youngsters in the 2019 World cup, another half stands firmly beside the three times ICC tournament winning captain. Dhoni has been silencing his critics in the perfect manner ever since. His latest reply to his critics came at Dharamshala when the team was struggling at 16-5 against the Sri Lankans. The inventor of the helicopter shot played a gutsy and matured knock of 65 to take India past the 100 run mark.
