India is the most formidable team going into the second edition of the Twenty20 World Cup. Speaking exclusively to Nidhi Tuli, Sri Lankan explosive opening batsman Sanath Jayasuriya calls the Men in Blue the most solid side in the race for the world title.
Nidhi: Last time around Sri Lanka could not make the cut, but are you confident about doing well this time?
Sanath: I think. The boys have been playing well and we have been playing IPL too before this, so it is a good practice for us. We have a young and experienced side, so we are just looking forward to this tournament.
Nidhi: Which team would you are targeting?
Sanath: The thing is on the particular day who will do well will be good for the team. It will depend from day to day.
Nidhi: India are the defending champions in this tournament. Do you think the pressure to defend the title can pull them down?
Sanath: No. I think it is all a history. This is a new tournament. They will come in with a fresh mind and thinking to do well in this World Cup.
Nidhi: Do you think there will be any advantage for India going into this World Cup?
Sanath: They have a good side. They have been playing really and also their confidence is really high.
Nidhi: Do you think the current Indian side on paper is the best?
Sanath: Yes they have a very good side. They have been playing very good cricket in the last one year or so. They have been really good in all forms of the game. Most of their batsmen are in good form and their bowlers also are doing well.
Nidhi: Coming through the IPL, do you think that practice is going to help the team or will the fatigue factor come into play?
Sanath: When you play for any tournament, it helps players because you need match practice.
Nidhi: Which is the one team you would pick to be most solid for this tournament?
Sanath: I think Indian team is the most solid team
