Two-time champions India, among the favourites to lift the World Cup along with England and Australia, have three wins and a no result from their four matches and look set for a semi-final place.
Srikkanth has been impressed by India's form and claims their powerful displays are torturing opponents in the same way the great West Indies' team of the 1970s used to have teams beaten mentally before the match even started.
"It is a little like England, at the moment everything seems to be going right (for India) and the fans should be very happy," Srikkanth said.
"This is starting to feel a little like the West Indian teams of the 1970s, where the opposition would start the game with a psychological disadvantage.
"Teams are worried about facing India and how they will cope with them, which immediately puts them on the back foot."
