Tendulkar praised Jasprit Bumrah for his fine performance with the ball. The return of Ashish Nehra, Yuvraj Singh, he said, will make India a formidable unit.

Sachin Tendulkar today said that India, with its “well balanced team”, has a very good chance to win the World T20, which will be held in India from March 8.

“We have a very good chance. In T20 I think the team is well balanced with senior members in the squad, then also youngsters and guys who have been around for a while and they all as a package have performed really well,” the master blaster told NDTV today.

On the team combination, Tendulkar said: “You see just the way Bumrah (Jaspreet) bowled in Australia was superb and then nice to have someone like Ashish Nehra back, Yuvi back in the squad, Harbhajan is there. All these guys… It’s a formidable combination. I would definitely want India to go all the way.”

Tendulkar felt India played fabulous cricket to make a clean sweep against Australia in the three-match T20I series.

“The way we played T20 I think fabulous cricket and I actually ended up watching the last ball (of the final T20). I was out somewhere and had just got back, my wife and son were watching. They called me and said last ball to go and two runs to win. I said there is no doubt we are scoring those two runs and Raina hit that brilliant shot over point,” said Tendulkar.
