Indian Cricket Board president Jagmohan Dalmiya today billed India to upset defending champions Australia in the World Cup final here on Sunday.
Dalmiya said India outscored Australia in almost all departments of the game.
"They are nowhere near us in batting. We are equal to them in bowling as our medium-pacers are bowling no less than the Australians.
"Also they do not have a good spinner while we have one," the BCCI chief said.
Dalmiya reconfirmed that the team will receive Rs 3.84 crore for just entering into the final.
"The money will actually double if India were to lay their hands on the Cup," he said.
"The prize money is all theirs. The board gets nothing. They will also get 60 per cent of the total earnings of logo money. And they deserve every penny of it," an upbeat Dalmiya said.
