London, May 30 (ANI): The India cricket team arrived at London Heathrow Airport on Friday to participate in the second World Twenty20 tournament that begins on June 5.

Before the team’s departure from Mumbai earlier in the day, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who won the cup in 2007, said he was confident about retaining the title, as the current team had enough experience of 20-20 cricket.

India play their opening match against Bangladesh on June 6 with Ireland being their other opponent in Group A of the 12-team tournament.
