India may find it difficult to win World T20: Kapil
Former India captain Kapil Dev feels that Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Indian team will find it ‘very difficult’ to win the upcoming World T20 in Sri Lanka considering the manner in which they played in during their last T20 International against New Zealand.

‘My heart says something and mind says something else. My heart says that India will win the World Cup and my cricketing brain thinks that they will find it very difficult. The way they played in the last T20 against New Zealand is not a good sign ahead of such an important tournament,’ Kapil said during a promotional event at a city outlet on Friday.

‘India lost from a winning position and one cannot let go opportunities just like that. A team can lose confidence if they are defeats like these,’ Kapil added.

‘Getting off to a good start in the tournament will be a key thing and then should think about the later part of the tournament,’ he said.

The 1983 World Cup winning captain didn't forget to mention that the batting unit has to click in order to excel in the big-ticket event.

‘India's biggest strength is the batting. Every team has 1-2 match winning batsmen, but India have around 5-6 batsmen who can turn the match all by themselves. But then, they will have to avoid complacency,’ he said.

Kapil also feels that Dhoni doesn't need to prove anything to anyone.
