India can defend the World Cup: Gavaskar

New Delhi: Former cricket captain and legend Sunil Gavaskar feels that defending champions India are a good enough side to retain the title in the 2015 World Cup, co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand, Feb 14-March 29, 2015.

Gavaskar, who had blasted the team after the 1-3 humiliating loss in the Test series against England, praised Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Co. for making a stunning turnaround by winning the ODI series 3-0 with still a match to go. It was India’s first bilateral ODI series win in England since 1990.

“The team is handling itself a lot better overseas (in ODIs),” said Gavaskar adding that the current form should be good enough for the side to defend World Cup title.

Gavaskar, however, warned that “Test performances count for a lot in international cricket as well”.
