India can win ICC World Cup 2015, feels VVS Laxman

VVS Laxman & DhoniFormer Indian cricketer VVS Laxman feels that India can win the next edition of the ICC World Cup to be held in 2015.

Laxman was effusive in his praise for India captain MS Dhoni, who lead the national team to back-to-back title triumphs at the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 in England and Caribbean tri-nation series in the West Indies.

“His records [of winning all the world titles] speak for himself. He has that uniqueness to respond to a tough situation with ease. He does not involve himself much emotionally, and that’s his quality. India are lucky to have a captain like Dhoni,” Laxman said on the sidelines of a function in Kolkata.

The 38-year-old batsman, who had announced his retirement from International cricket in August last year, however, refused to draw comparisons between Dhoni and former India captain Sourav Ganguly.
