Chennai: Batting great Sachin Tendulkar believes India will retain the Twenty20 World Cup next month, saying skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team is the world’s best in the most explosive form of the game.  “India is the most balanced side in the world and there is no doubt we can defend the title,” Tendulkar told the DNA newspaper on Thursday.

“We have very good cricketers in our side and we have proved that this combination is the deadliest,” added the record-breaking batsman, who does not play in Twenty20 internationals.
