New Delhi: Former India legend Sachin Tendulkar feels that Mahendra Singh Dhoni's side have a very good chance to win the ICC World Twenty20 starting at home from March 8.

In an interview with NDTV, Sachin said that the T20I team is very well balanced and as a package the players have performed very well.

"We have a very good chance. In T20 I think the team is well balanced with senior members in the squad, then also youngsters and guys who been around for a while and they all as a package have performed really well," said Sachin on Wednesday.

Debutant Jasprit Bumrah won hearts with his bowling against Australia in the T2Os. Sachin was quick to praise the bowler.

"You see just the way Bumrah (Jasprit) bowled in Australia was superb.”

He also went on to add that it was nice to have senior players back in the side besides that he would definitely want India to go all the way.

“It is nice to have someone like Ashish Nehra back, Yuvi back in the squad, Harbhajan is there. All these guys. It's a formidable combination. I would definitely want India to go all the way."
