New Delhi | Legendary cricketer Ricky Ponting has said India can be dangerous for other teams in the ICC 2015 World Cup, but added that his favorite team will always be Australia.
India have got too many class players in their team to not be serious contenders at some stage. If they happen to play as well as they can, they are very dangerous, Ponting was quoted as as saying by ‘bccitv.com’.
India got into the World Cup after a tough time in the Test series and the tri-series. But I got a feeling that they got a bit of a downtime after that and started to build things up at the start of this tournament.
The former Aussie skipper further said he would still put his bet on his country to lift the trophy for a record fifth time.
Australia kick started their World Cup 2015 campaign on a winning as the Kangaroos thrashed England by 111 runs in Melbourne. They will now take on minnows Bangladesh on February 21 in Brisbane.
