India favourite to retain Cricket World Cup: Bhachung Bhutia

Kolkata: Hailing Mahendra Singh Dhoni as the best skipper, former football ace Bhaichung Bhutia Saturday exuded confidence in the Indian cricket team successfully defending the World Cup.

"Under Dhoni, we have won Twenty20 and 50-over World Cups. Hopefully, they would do it again. India are the favourites," former India football captain Bhutia said here.

"Dhoni is surely the best captain India have ever had. I think he's going to win the World Cup this time as well," said Bhutia.

However, Bhutia admitted that he doesn't get much time to catch up much on the World Cup action currently going on in Australia and New Zealand.
