Dravid, who was here for the Laureus Sport for Good programme 'Magic Bus' in his capacity as a member of its World Sports Academy, said India looks to be the most "formidable" team of the tournament, the main draw of which gets underway from March 15.

“I think India would make the top four, but after that, it's just a question of who has a better day in the semifinal and final... There's a good crop of players coming through. I think it's going to be an exciting 24 months for the Indian team. I think the good thing about this Indian team and this T20 World Cup is they have good depth, they have good all round depth at the moment," Dravid said.
"Players like Hardik Pandya and Pawan Negi, it just shows that they have got sort of batting right down to No. 8, 9. They have got six or seven bowlers to call upon in Indian conditions that they can use.
"So I think it gives them sort of a good range of all around ability, and then with Ashish Nehra bowling well up front and Bumrah bowling well at the depth, they have actually  got the two areas which India were struggling in covered. This is a pretty formidable side at the moment and I think the all around ability of this team is what excites me," he added.
Dravid said the Indian team's next target should be to fetch good Test results abroad.
