Indian Team Can Lift the 2015 World Cup: Rahul Dravid
Former Indian Captain Rahul Dravid believes that Team India has the potential to lift the World Cup 2015 to be played in Australia and New Zealand as the team has the luxury of playing five bowlers in the match.
“India are one of the strong contenders for World Cup as the team has been shaping up well and have an advantage of playing five bowlers in a match, which is a key factor for any side to be that good.
“The Australian tour will be a learning curve for young Indian players before they participate in the World Cup.“
When Dravid was asked about how should the likes of Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane maintain the legacy of the ‘Fab Four’ that comprised greats like him, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, he expressed that the younger players must make efforts to establish themselves as good players.
“We are actually not thinking about it. We tend to take one step at a time and try to establish ourselves as good players.
“I didn’t even think about trying to cope with the legacy of Sunil Gavaskar, Dilip Vengsarkar, Mohinder Amarnath and GR Vishwanath. Yeah, there is a thrill associated with these names, but when you are starting as a kid you don’t think you want to be a GR Vishwanath.
“The upcoming events will be an opportunity for the youngsters to build a stable batting line-up for the Indian team.
“Therein lies the opportunity for the group which is going now. There is good talent in that group – but if they keep performing consistently, then I think they have potential to build a strong and stable middle-order for India.”
