And so they are off…

Team India departs today for the West Indies. Everyone from Shah Rukh Khan to Manmohan Singh, the Indian Prime Minister, has jumped in to wish the team.

The endorsement functions are all over. The farewell extravaganzas are all over. It is head-down-bum-up time for the team.

Rahul Dravid sought to downplay the hype about the World Cup being that precious trophy that the senior pros in the side desperately wanted. He instead sought to transfer the pressure onto Australia by terming them as favourites to win the Cup.

Greg Chappell exuded confidence meanwhile, saying that India had the team to win the Cup. He exhorted his senior pros to give off their best indicating that it was now time to deliver the Cup to the many fans in India.

We at i3j3 also send our best wishes to Team India.

One response to “And so they are off…

  1. It will be the senior players of course, who will have to play the main role for Team India to have any chance in WC07. Players like Dhoni, Yuvraj, Sree and Utthapa can deliver their parts only if Tendulkar, Dravid and Ganguly prove their worth this time round. One will have to wait and watch for another several weeks to see if this takes place or not!
