India have a good chance of beating Australia. India is a better side.” Speaking on India’s prime hope against the Aussies, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav said, “I don’t mind him failing against the West Indies. Every time he has got out cheaply, he comes out all guns blazing (referring to his two centuries against England and South Africa in this WC) in next match. I hope to see him putting India in a good position against the Aussies.” Tendulkar had failed to score big in both the games in WC 2003, when India won all their matches, except against the Aussies.  India’s only WC winning captain Kapil Dev also said, “They have the ability to do it (beat the Aussies).”last_img read more
