Former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has backed the current side under Mahendra Singh Dhoni to bounce back after drubbing in the England Test series. India were beaten 3-1 by England in the Test series, which sparked heavy criticism of many players.

Tendulkar was quoted as saying by The Hindu, “I know the cricketers in this Indian team. I know what they are capable of. This team will come back in Tests. I want to look at things with a positive mind-set. Look at the way the Indians have come back in the one-day series. The team has shown a lot of fight.”

Talking about the ICC World Cup 2015, the Little Master said India are among the strong contenders. “India is definitely among the strong contenders for the title. It is a well balanced side and is tough to beat. It is a versatile ODI team. There is depth in batting and variety in bowling. And the fielding has been brilliant.”

“If you look at batting, there is a good mix of the right and the left-handers. When a right-left combination is at the crease, it becomes a lot harder for the bowlers. They have to find the right line. In bowling, the Indians have been bowling well in partnerships. There are some good pace and spin options at different stages of the innings,” Tendulkar said.
