Cricket Fever at RPG

With the cricket fever at RPG, here are some senior management who have shared about their favorite players in the ICC World Cup 2019 and the teams they had wished to see in the final.


Anant Goenka- CEAT

My favorite player in the world cup was Rohit Sharma because he played like an artist and used his bat very gracefully. I am also partial because he uses the CEAT bat.


I was pretty sure that we would witness an India-England final as both teams were in incredible form. It was disappointing that only 50% of this wish came true!


Vimal Kejriwal- KEC International

Who else but Virat Kohli! While he was far less impressive than what he is capable of, there is no one like him currently in all three formats of the game.


I expected to see India and England in the final. There was a big reason to be optimistic – India holds a stellar record in ICC tournaments held in England. With the advantage of a home turf, England is also well poised to lay claim to the elusive World Cup.


Ramani Kasi- Raychem RP

My favorite player remains MS Dhoni as his contribution to India’s ODI history in the last decade or so cannot be ignored. His awe-inspiring performance and his six to seal the win against Sri Lanka in the 2011 WC final, will be forever etched in the memory of all those who love the game.


Azfar Hussain- RPG Enterprises

My favorite player was Mohammed Amir - from being dropped from the original team for the World Cup to being one of the highest wicket takers despite playing one less match than Mitchell Starc – is a huge achievement. He’s been one of the best bowlers of the tournament so far.


I had hoped to see England taking on New Zealand in the final, but the results left me quite shattered, frankly!


Tushar Joshi - RPG Life Sciences

My favorite player in the WC was Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan. He has been a consistent performer in all formats of the game.


India and New Zealand are the two countries who I expected to see in the final. India’s record in the past year was impeccable and their ouster simply proved the whimsical nature of any sport.
