India have a perfect mix of world class performers and that makes them hot favourites at the upcoming World T20, former batsman Virender Sehwag said on Tuesday.

Sehwag, who bid adieu to international cricket recently, said the hosts have a strong batting line up and a lethal attack.

“We have batsmen like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane and bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah, Ashish Nehra and spin attack of Jadeja and Ashwin. I think, India are the favourites for the competition,” Sehwag said.

Sehwag was all praise for India’s opening combination of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan.

“They have become a good pair and if they stay there for first seven or eight overs, nobody can stop India,” said Sehwag, who himself was an aggressive opener.
