Dhawan, Jadeja, Kohli are India’s nucleus for 2015 WC: Bedi

New Delhi, June 24: Former India captain Bishan Singh Bedi today hailed the brilliant performance of the Indian team in the Champions Trophy and said the “nucleus” of the squad that will represent India in the 2015 World Cup is ready.
“This tournament has given us an idea about what will be Indian team’s nucleus during 2015 World Cup. Shikhar (Dhawan), Virat (Kohli), Jadeja (Ravindra) and Suresh Raina will form the core of Dhoni’s team for the World Cup Down Under,” Bedi said during an interview today.
The legendary left-arm spinner, however, cautioned that one shouldn’t get carried away as this is the time to build upon this stupendous show.
“Let’s not get carried away by this performance. They are deserving winners no doubt but we need to build upon this victory. We shouldn’t bring the team down if they lose a few matches. The best part was that same XI played throughout the tournament and it happens when a team is full of self-belief,” the 66-year-old former spinner observed.
The stand-out player in the tournament, according to Bedi, has been Jadeja, who has shown “remarkable temperament”. (PTI)
