Dhaka: Mar 15, 2014

 

Pakistan seamer Sohail Tanvir, who made his debut against India at ICC World T20 2007 tournament, believes India will have the strongest batting line-up.

 

“With the inclusion of MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh, India are I think the strongest batting line-up. But then again, it’s not a game of big names, it depends on how you perform on a given day,” he said.

 

“I have played with a lot of Indian players. I shared a dressing room with [Ravichandran] Ashwin and Yuvi [Yuvraj]. They are good friends off the field. The tension or the hot gestures that you used to see are still like that, it hasn’t changed over the last 10-15 years, but off the field we are good friends,” said Tanvir, who had played in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for Rajasthan Royals.
