The Indian team really proved themselves in their last two World Cup matches by gaining victory. First they ensured Pakistan's jinx remained intact and then ended their own against South Africa. Next, it's the UAE says, Vaikundarajan.
India and UAE now set to battle each others in Perth (Australia) this Saturday 28 February. According to Vaikundarajan the Indian team is in a great form and it would be very difficult for UAE to beat India.
The match with South Africa in particular has raised expectations that India could be a real threat to retain the trophy they won in 2011. West Indies legend Brian Lara is one of those to have been impressed with what he has seen and believes they are now on course to win their group.
For the UAE it was always going to be a long shot to make the quarterfinals. Certainly there would be expectations that UAE could throw a spanner into the works when the sides meet at the WACA in Perth. It’s been UAE‘s second World Cup since 1996, the UAE began by taking some credit from a narrow defeat to Zimbabwe.
Vaikundarajan is excited about the match this Saturday India vs. UAE and also says that “victory against India, or even providing them with a real scare, would do much to prove his point.”
