The former World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev made some bold predictions on Team India’s T20 World Cup campaign. Former Indian players and greats Sachin Tendulkar and Ravi Shastri feel India have it in them to make it to the semi-finals easily. However, that is not what former Indian captain Kapil Dev feels. He believes India’s chances of qualifying for the semi-finals are narrow. He said that he can only comment on India’s chances if they make it to top 4.
Kapil Dev opens up on Team India
“In T20 cricket, the team winning a match can lose the next… It’s a very difficult to talk about the chances of India winning the World Cup. The issue is can they make it to the top four? And I am concerned about their making it to the top four, only then anything can be said. For me, it’s just 30 % chance of India making it to the top four,” said Kapil Dev in a promotional event in Lucknow.
Kapil however added that India have a decent batting attack which possesses stars like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. He said, “Having a batter like Suryakumar in the team in the company of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, a team automatically becomes strong.”
Team India left for Australia in the early morning hours of October 6 and played two practice games against Western Australia in the build-up for the tournament. India’s second warm-up tie vs New Zealand was washed out on Wednesday (October 19) before the marquee clash against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 23.
