"After all even in 1983, no one rated us highly. Yet we managed to win playing some inspired cricket," said the World Cup winning captain.
But he said the competition would get extremely tough after the super six stage and India would have to reproduce their best form to get the better of other teams.
"All the teams that make it to the last six stage of the tournament are almost of the same strength and calibre. And the team that plays well on that particular day will lift the Cup," he said.
