New Delhi: After dismal tours of England and Australia, former captain Sourav Ganguly said Monday that India have to win the Asia Cup that kicked-off in Dhaka Monday.

As India start their title-defence against Sri Lanka Tuesday, Ganguly said the World Champions have the ability to defend the title.

"India have the team to win the Cup. They need to lift their confidence after two bad tours. My only worry with the India is their bowling," he said.

Ganguly said India should be wary of Sri Lanka.

"Sri Lanka are a good team and they are playing well at the moment. Pakistan looked a bit vulnerable the other day against Bangladesh," he said.
