Sachin Tendulkar Backs India to Defend World Cup
Retired batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar has backed defending champion India to do well at next year's World Cup because of the team's all-round ability.
The 41-year-old Tendulkar, who retired last year with most runs and most centuries in both tests and one-day internationals, praised all facets of the Indian team as it took a 3- nil lead after four games of a five-match ODI series in England.
Tendulkar, who is set to come out with his autobiography on November 6th, said the bowling attack too had been combining well.
The 2015 World Cup will be played in Australia and New Zealand from February 14th to March 29th.
