India is favourite to win ICC World T20: Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar has backed India as the favourites to win the ICC World T20 2016. “We have a very good chance. In T20 I think the team is well balanced with senior members in the squad, then also youngsters and guys who been around for a while and they all as a package have performed really well,” the master blaster told NDTV on Wednesday.

“The way we played T20 I think fabulous cricket and I actually ended up watching the last ball (of the final T20). I was out somewhere and had just got back, my wife and son were watching. They called me and said last ball to go and two runs to win. I said there is no doubt we are scoring those two runs and Raina hit that brilliant shot over point,” said Tendulkar.

The Indian cricket team played some excellent cricket in the T20 series against Australia. On the team combination, Tendulkar further said: “You see just the way Bumrah (Jaspreet) bowled in Australia was superb and then nice to have someone like Ashish Nehra back, Yuvi back in the squad, Harbhajan is there. All these guys. It’s a formidable combination. I would definitely want India to go all the way.”

To the lead up to ICC World T20, India will play three T20’s against Sri Lanka and atleast 4 matches in the Asia Cup. The Indian batting line up looks in great touch with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh. India has the edge of playing on home conditions. India has ability to play good quality cricket and if they play aggressive cricket then India has great chance of winning the World T20. Indians have the confidence of beating Australia 3-0 and will be looking to continue their winning streak in lead up to World T20.
