The cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar recently opened up on India’s trophy draught in terms of winning the World Cup. ‘The Little Master’ was part of the team when the Men in Blue picked up the historic World Cup back in 2011 under former Indian skipper MS Dhoni. Since Virat Kohli took the charge, the side has not been able to record major ICC Trophies which has been a matter of criticism. Sachin Tendulkar now believes that there is huge possibility that India could perform well under the new regime of Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma in the T20 World Cup later this year.

India crashed out of the T20 World Cup last year in the Super 12 stage. Ahead of the tournament in the UAE last year, Kohli had said that he would relinquish the T20I captaincy after the end of the T20 World Cup. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) named Rohit Sharma as full-time white-ball captain while announcing India’s squad for the recently-concluded tour of South Africa.

Australia is set to host the next T20 World Cup later this year and Tendulkar said that he would love to see the team lift yet another World Cup title.

“In the month of April this year, we’ll complete 11 years (of World Cup win). That’s a long wait. Everyone including me would love to see that trophy in BCCI’s cabinet. This is one trophy which all the cricketers play for. It doesn’t get any bigger than that… be it a shorter or longer format. World Cup is something special and that’s what I feel,” Tendulkar said on ‘Backstage with Boria’ YouTube show.

He hailed them as a “fantastic pair” and he also praised Rohit and head coach Rahul Dravid, saying that both the stars have played enough cricket to overcome all “ups and downs”.

“Rohit & Rahul is a fantastic pair. I know that guys would give their best shot and prepare to the best of their ability.”

India will face Pakistan in their opening match of the T20 World later this year, which be a repeat of last year’s Super 12 stage match.
