India blanked Sri Lanka 3-0 at home recently, following their triumph Down Under, which has given the team hope of regaining the trophy it won in its inaugural edition in 2007 under the leadership of Dhoni.
The 34-year-old said, "We have played T20s in Australia and the at home in recent times. The team is doing well. So, you can say that the team is in auto-pilot mode. Injuries have to be kept at bay. If every player is fit, and every player is in form then it is good for the team," Dhoni said yesterday.
Dhoni is especially satisfied with the performance of his bowlers and expects them to deliver in the mega-event starting March 8. According to him, they are better equipped to do well in the shortest format than in ODIs.

We are always top contenders in shorter formats, says Dhoni

"As far as T20 is concerned, our bowling has been very good. And at the same time, if you compare it with 50 overs it becomes a bit different. Because in 20 overs you know after one or two balls, batsman will want to go for a big shot, they will play aggressive cricket so you can play around with that,” added India's T20 skipper.
Sometimes in the 50-over format, we talk about building pressure and when playing outside India, if you don't get wickets in middle overs, the pressure builds up, especially on the spinners and then on the fast bowlers in the slog overs.
