Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is confident of his team’s chances for the 2015 World Cup to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
“I’m keenly looking forward to the tournament and confident that we’ll do well. Our recent victory in the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 has provided the team with a lot of confidence, and I am sure this experience will help us in our preparations for the World Cup in 2015,” Dhoni told the ICC website on Tuesday.
Terming the tournament as a special event, the 32-year-old assured that the team will do its best to defend the crown they won in front of home crowd at Mumbai in 2011.
“World Cup is a very special event for every cricketer because it only takes place every four years. Having tasted success in Mumbai in 2011, we’ll be working very hard to retain it,” he said.
The ICC on Tuesday announced the schedule of the 2015 World Cup clubbing archrivals India and Pakistan in the same pool.
The event starts on February 15 and the final will be hosted by Melbourne Cricket Ground on March 29.
