By India Today Web Desk: Former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar stated that if India doesn’t win the T20 World Cup then it will come as a surprise as the team got numerous matches to prepare for the ICC event.

India played two T20I bilateral series against Australia and South Africa, a practice match against Western Australia and a T20I World Cup warm-up match against the world champions in the build up to the marquee event in Australia.

“One thing for sure. If the Indian team does not win this T20 World Cup it won’t be for lack of preparation. Not only have they gone to Australia almost three weeks before their first game of the tournament, they are also playing practice games against good sides that should get them ready for the tournament,” Gavaskar wrote in his column for Mid-Day.

“The old saying, ‘if you fail to prepare then prepare to fail’ will not apply to this Indian team as, apart from these games in Australia, they also played six T20 matches at home and won four out of those to show that they are tuning in nicely for the big event.”

The member of the 1983 World Cup-winning India, Gavaskar further said the team has a terrific blend of youth and experience. He also pointed out that the team is in good headspace unlike in previous events, where he went “cold”.

“India’s performance in the white ball bilaterals has always been good, be it at home or overseas, but it’s in the multilateral events that they have been stumbling. In the past it’s been because they have come cold into the event.

“But that isn’t the case this time around and that’s why, with a terrific blend of youth and experience, there’s optimism among Indian cricket fans that the Cup should be coming home. Yes, the other teams have also been playing practice games and that should hold them in good stead, but there’s a buzz about this Indian team despite the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja,” Gavaskar said.
