And <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/hardik-pandya/news/">Hardik Pandya</a> is a great X-factor in the team and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ravindra-jadeja/news/">Ravindra Jadeja</a> who can get going at the lower order, so overall, I think we have got a very good chance and I think we should be in the top four," added Rajput, who is now Zimbabwe's coach. <p></p> <p></p>India begin their campaign against South Africa at Southampton on June 5.
