Hopes the break would have helped Team India
India’s Mahendra Singh Dhoni is hoping that a break in a long summer tour of Australia has recharged his men for the World Cup and has not left them “over-cooked”. “It’s not easy to play four Test matches… followed by a tri-nation series,” Dhoni told reporters in Adelaide. “So this break would have definitely helped them to recharge their batteries … only time will tell.” India begin the defence of their World Cup title against traditional rivals Pakistan on February 15 in Adelaide.
