NEW DELHI, Jan 19 (PTI): Former Australian all-rounder Michael Bevan has picked India as one of the favourites to win the World Cup starting next month in the sub-continent.
Bevan, who has been roped in by Kings XI Punjab as their chief coach for the fourth edition of the Indian Premier League, said Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his boys have it in them to lift the trophy on April 2. �India is performing as a team, as a unit. One would have to say that they have come up great as a team. There is so much potential in these boys,� said Bevan.
�They are the number one Test side in the world, second in one-day internationals. India have got the capacity to lead world cricket for a long time,� the 40-year-old Belconnen-born former left-hander said. India have won the World Cup only once in 1983 and were runners up in 2003. In 2007, they were knocked out in the first round.
