Players quote on WC selection:
VVS Laxman, Team Mentor, Sunrisers Hyderabad:
The Indian team is a very balanced side and is one of the strong contenders for the title. I have closely monitored Bhuvi and Vijay in the nets while they were on SRH duties. They look in great shape and are raring to perform on a stage like World Cup. I can see these players contributing in team’s success in a major way.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Player, Sunrisers Hyderabad:
I am extremely happy to be selected for the World Cup, the conducive English conditions will suit my strength and I am looking to make most of it. Playing for SRH in IPL has given me the right match practice just before the mega tournament like WC. This is my second WC and now I am pretty confident to perform at such level.
Vijay Shankar, Player, Sunrisers Hyderabad:
I am extremely elated to be in the Indian WC team. This is like a dream come true. We have a few World cup winning team members here at SRH and I have spoken to them to understand what it feels like to play in a WC and then go on to win it. I have learnt a lot from them on the ways to manage pressure at such a large scale event.
