Kolkata: India’s constrained overs captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sunday said his 15-part squad chose for the Asia Cup and World Twenty20 has the fixings and ability to win the two major forthcoming competitions. “Yes [India can win World T20]. I have the conviction that we have the ability required to win a major competition. This group has every one of the fixings yet what will be essential is to keep the group fit and attempt to give the same number of diversions to every one of the people who are a piece of the side,” Dhoni said in his question and answer session before flight for the Asia Cup in Bangladesh. MS Dhoni-drove India will leave for Dhaka on February 21 to join in Asia Cup 2016
“In any case, that will rely on upon where we are situated in the competition, in Asia Cup particularly. After that we have two recreations before the World T20 begins. On the off chance that everybody gets a chance, it will be useful for the group.” India group leaves on Sunday for Bangladesh where they will play the Asia Cup, being played in the T20 position surprisingly. The competition will be played from February 24 to March 6 with all matches being held at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.
Taking after the competition, India will return home to join in the extremely critical World T20, which will be played crosswise over seven urban areas from March 15 to April 3. “Two [World T20] warm-up diversions — we will attempt to play every one of the 15. At last, you need to do well in the field. In this arrangement, you need to keep the huge hitters away. In the event that a group has two major hitters, particularly in a knockout, you need to guarantee they don’t score runs. On the off chance that they do, they can remove the amusement from you,” said the 34-year-old. India have an extremely adjusted group for World T20, says MS Dhoni
India go into the Asia Cup without pacer Mohammed Shami, who is as yet nursing a harm. Shami was as of late supplanted by swing bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar. “We need to declare the 15-part squad a month prior to the competition. Presently it is on you on the off chance that you need to pick a fellow who can get fit before the competition. You won’t not pick him and after that you see some person like a Shami 100 percent fit in 10 days time. That is the reason he was chosen,” said the 2007 World T20-winning captain.
“He needs to demonstrate his wellness and on the off chance that he isn’t fit then we have substitutions holding up. He has been one bowler who has knocked down some pins well for us, be it forthright or at the demise, so that was considered. On the off chance that he gets fit, the rocking the bowling alley assault looks vastly improved.” The captain has over and over advanced himself up the batting request in One-Day Internationals (ODI) yet demanded he won’t be doing likewise in the following two occasions unless there is a noteworthy need.
“In the event that it is a typical situation, there would not be any requirement for me to bat up the request. We are a decent batting side. In any case, obviously, on the off chance that you have an organization and everyone is doing admirably till the eighteenth over, then I might advance myself. Other than that, I don’t see myself giving myself an advancement,” said the 34-year-old. Inquired as to whether his captaincy has changed throughout the years and in the event that he does things another way now, Dhoni said, “I have not changed as a commander. I am 100 percent the same that I used to be. There are no adjustments in my captaincy.”
