Sachin Tendulkar has said that India can definetely match title contenders Australia and South Africa and advised the men in blue to take it “step by step”.
Tendulkar told a TV Channel that India need to go step-by-step and they should not think about just the quarters but take it match by match.
“We can match the likes of Australia, South Africa. We can play even better than the way we played Pakistan. Our batting can do even better and our bowling needs to continue same way. The series in Australia will help us…playing against the top sides makes your game better .
Tendulkar also spoke about India opener Rohit Sharma that he should not be put under pressure after he only scored 15 runs against Pakistan
in the last match and opening would be the key against the “Proteas” .
He also added that India will need to respect South Africa’s pace spearhead Dale Steyn and India should not change its batting order much in the
the next match . He said “Rahane can come up if we lose early wickets as Raina is more dangerous post-20 overs. Rahane can play early overs better”.
Also” Team India” has reached Melbourne after defeating Pakistan for the 6th time in World Cup and after a two days rest Indian team was back to the field where they played football for warm up.
