Kolkata, June 2(ANI): Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar on Tuesday emphasized that the Indian squad has all the qualities to retain the Twenty20 cricket World Cup due to commence from Friday in England.
Commenting on India’s performance at the Twenty-20 level, he said that the Indian team looks absolutely balanced.
“I think we have an explosive batting line up and a good bowling attack. On the whole, you can see the team is quite nicely balanced. I don’t see any reasons why we cannot live up to the expectations,” Tendulkar said.
Further, he exuded confidence of India defending the title won in 2007.
