MS Dhoni wants to emulate West Indies, Australia at the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup

MS Dhoni hopes that India can become only the third team to successfully defend their World Cup title. West Indies and Australia achieved this feat in 1979 and 2003 respectively. Australia are the only team to win three tournaments in-a-row after winning the 2007 edition as well.

Dubai: Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Friday said that India would aim to be only the third side in history to clinch back-to-back world cups by winning the tournament which will be held in Australia-New Zealand next year.

Dhoni said his side was shaping up nicely and confident of emulating Australia and the West Indies to win back-to-back Cricket World Cups.

"It is amazing to think that it is just one year until we defend our ICC Cricket World Cup title as that means it is almost three years since we won the trophy on that amazing night in Mumbai. The memories of that night and of the whole tournament are as fresh and as special as ever," said Dhoni, in an ICC release to mark one year to go to the start of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup.
