MUMBAI - Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni Tuesday said the team has always performed under pressure and it will be no different in the upcoming World Cup at home starting Feb 19.
Dhoni’s boys would be looking to win the coveted trophy for a second time and repeat the feat of 1983 in front of home fans.
“I think the Indian cricket team always performs under pressure. What we have done in the last three years is that we have seen pressure as a responsibility,” Dhoni said at a promotional event here.
“We will stick to the basics and are well prepared. We have the potential to do well in the tournament. For a change we will not be the underdogs,” said Dhoni.
Dhoni, however, refused to make predictions on India’s performance.
“I never predict when it comes to cricket. We believe in each of us and the support staff members are also there to help us. We believe in a process. We will just give it our best shot.”
