Having pocketed the 50-over World Cup and Champions Trophy, India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has said his team will be looking to lift the ICC World T20 title next year in Bangladesh in order to complete a unique feat. "It's personally quite exciting for me as a captain, as I look forward to leading India's quest to reclaim the ICC World Twenty20 title," Dhoni said.

"If India manages to snare this coveted trophy, it will complete a unique feat as it already holds the ICC Cricket World Cup and ICC Champions Trophy," he added.

The 100-day countdown clock to the World Twenty20 Bangladesh 2014 was unveiled on Thursday evening in the three host cities -- at South Plaza Gate, National Parliament House (Dhaka), Chittagong's Circuit House Circle, MA Aziz Stadium and Sylhet's Keane Bridge (Surma River). Dhoni said India would have an upper hand in Bangladesh as they were familiar with the conditions there. "We are familiar with the conditions in Bangladesh and I'm sure they will suit our style of play," he insisted.
