India`s Cricket World Cup squad has many match-winners and the country can win the tournament for the second time, former captain Dilip Vengsarkar said on Monday.

"This team has good possibilities of winning the World Cup and it can repeat the victorious run of the Indian cricket team in 1983 World Cup," Vengsarkar, who was here to inaugurate a state-level cricket tournament for visually challenged, told reporters.

"Team India selected for the World Cup has a number of players who can turn the game on their own," he said when asked about the World Cup starting on February 19.

Vengsarkar said that though there is no shortage of cricket talent in Uttar Pradesh, the state lacked basic
facilities.

As far as the basic facilities are concerned, UP is much behind Delhi and Mumbai, he said.

He said there was a need to set up a sports university in UP and he was ready to offer help.

Vengsarkar said that free coaching should be made at this university for boys willing to learn cricket.
