"We have a very good chance. In T20 I think the team is well balanced with senior members in the squad, then also youngsters and guys who been around for a while and they all as a package have performed really well," the master blaster told NDTV yesterday.

On the team combination, Tendulkar further said: "You see just the way (Jaspreet) Bumrah bowled in Australia was superb and then nice to have someone like Ashish Nehra back, Yuvi (Yuvraj Singh) back in the squad, Harbhajan (Singh) is there. It's a formidable combination. I would definitely want India to go all the way."

Tendulkar felt India whitewashed Australia in the three-match T20 series with "fabulous cricket".

"The way we played the T20 series was fabulous. I was out somewhere and had just got back, my wife and son were watching. They called me and said last ball to go and two runs to win (in third T20 at Sydney). I said there is no doubt we are scoring those two runs and (Suresh) Raina hit that brilliant shot over point," said Tendulkar.
