Sachin Tendulkar reckons that the young Indian ODI team is very capable even in overseas conditions and there is no reason why they cannot defend their crown in the next year’s World Cup in OZ.
According to Sachin, the fight back by the young boys after the test series in England is a sign that they are mentally tough and relish the challenges.
After the 1-3 test series loss, a lot of Indian players, including the superstar Virat Kohli, were criticized.
There had been questions raised over the abilities of the youngsters, but, all those critics eventually had to eat their words as in the One Day Internationals, India came back in style and handed England three consecutive defeats in Nottingham, Rose Bowl and Edgbaston.
Talking about the Indian side the other day, Sachin said, “I have spent time with these young boys and I can assure you that they are all very good. Yes, in test matches, there have not been too many positive results of late, but, let us have some patience. It’s a young team. They will start delivering. I mean see how well they have done in ODIs.”
When asked about India’s chances in the World Cup, the master blaster said, “I would not be surprised if they are able to defend the title. They are a versatile side. There is left-right combination in their batting and as far as bowling is concerned, they are good both pace and spin wise. There is some real quality in there and I am backing them to do well in Australia-New Zealand.”
Sachin was a key part of the Indian side that had won the World Cup in the subcontinent in 2011. He was the man of the match in the semis against Pakistan.

The future of Robinho is consistently being linked with a move away from Ac.Milan as the Brazilian player could never really manage to make himself being felt by his teammates or managers. With a price tag of €18 million, Robinho arrived to the Italian club from Manchester City but his time at San Siro is reaching its end as there are a number of clubs that are willing to sign him and the head coach of Ac.Milan Filippo Inzaghi could use the cash injection to strengthen other areas of the squad.
During the past few seasons Ac.Milan has been going through a major renovation with senior and experienced players leaving the Italian club while some younger ones have been added to the team but things have not been going smooth for the club with a number of managers seeing their way out of San Siro after not being able to pick up positive results.
Even though the Italian season has not started Filippo Inzaghi is already been heavily criticized after losing against Manchester City, Liverpool and Olympiakos in the International Champions Cup. Robinho was not featured in either of those matches and this puts into question if the Brazilian attacker is in the plans of the new coach.
Robinho, Al-Ahli, Orlando City, Al Jazira are some of the latest clubs that have been in contact with the agent of the Brazilian player as they are trying to sign him before the conclusion of the summer transfer window.
Marisa Ramos is the agent of Robinho and she has revealed a few details concerning the future of her client, Robinho as she said: “Yes, Santos is certainly a possibility for Robinho. However, we are waiting, as nothing has been decided or completed. We are evaluating every hypothesis.
“At the moment, nothing has been sorted out for Robinho’s new club. There has been important progress and now we are down to details. There is a great chance Robinho could return to Santos. We are analyzing everything calmly, considering the financial and sporting aspects, plus obviously the love Robinho has for Santos. I have always made it clear we were analyzing every possibility without ruling anything out.”
