India are set for their strongest tilt at the World Cup since they won it in 1983. The team is packed with veterans – young and old. Tendulkar, although no one in world cricket wants to see him go, looks like he will be playing in his last World Cup. This paired with the fact that India will be playing five of their six matches at home will be a huge boost to a country looking for their second World Cup trophy. However, there will be a lot of pressure on the team with expectation across the country at fever pitch, if the reaction to India’s T20 World Cup win in 2007 is anything to go by. If they pull it off, they will be the first team in World Cup history to win at home.While pace bowling may be a weakness, Zaheer seems to have the power to change the momentum in a match. The only problem is the lack of alternatives. This will be a weakness but the team is stocked with bowlers experienced in the conditions. They will have no problem with scoring runs as they have arguably the most explosive line-up in the world with Sehwag, Dhoni, Tendulkar and Yusuf Pathan, who almost won for India the South Africa series with a 70-ball century batting with the tail in the last match. It has always been difficult to beat India at home and this tournament might be no different.

Verdict: The loss against South Africa came at the perfect time. It will allow the team to reassess where they stand for a stronger shot at the title. With Sachin, Sehwag and a host of others to return, India will be a much stronger team, and have a great chance to break the hoodoo of home teams.
