On the eve of the team’s departure for South Africa for the Champions Trophy, Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni today cautioned his teammates against taking any side lightly, saying all the eight participating nations are best in the world.
Dhoni said his team is geared up for the September 22-October 5 tournament and the return of opener Gautam Gambhir will boost the side’s batting line up.
“Each and every team that will play in the Champions Trophy are the best in the world. So we are taking every team seriously,” Dhoni said at a pre-departure press conference here.
“We are thinking about things we are supposed to do rather than thinking about what others are doing. We are quite keen on going over there and giving our best.
