Former Aussie great Shane Warne has rated Team India as one of the favourites to win this year’s World Cup along with England and reigning champions Australia.

“As I’m putting my #worldcup squad together for my column, I really believe Australia can win it again. As we have the players for the conditions, match winners etc. I think England & India go in as hot favourites, but if the selectors play their part – then the Aussies can 100 per cent win,” Warne wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

Men in Blue have done exceptionally well in the fifty-over format, defeating South Africa 5-1, Australia 2-1 before thumping New Zealand 3-1 this year.

Sachin Tendulkar is also backing India to come good in the World Cup. “I have gone on record saying that we have a perfect balance in the team where we will be competitive in any part of the world or on any surface.” “As far as our chances are concerned, I will not hesitate in saying that we are the favourites,” Tendulkar told PTI.
