India will make it to semis: Sachin

Sachin Tendulkar on Thursday tipped India to make it to the semifinals of the cricket World Cup and said that captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni could play a key role in the country’s fortunes in the showpiece event.

“According to me, the top four teams that I would put them in the semis would be Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and India,” said Tendulkar.

He said the whole team will have to perform if India have to defend the title they won at home in 2011 but felt that Dhoni’s experience and calm leadership would play a key role.

“I think MS Dhoni is the key guy because he has the experience of competing at this level for close to 10 years and he is calm and composed. You know, even on the biggest of the stages he is calm and composed and that is what you expect from a leader.” 

“A leader should not panic, a quality which he has, and you know it’s equally important for a captain to be in a good form also to take his team forward, only one individual cannot make you win the trophy,” the 41-year-old said.
