Former captain Anil Kumble on Sunday said India will miss the services of Sachin Tendulkar when they enter the field for the first time without the batting great in a world-level tournament but insisted the team has enough young talent to do the job in the Champions Trophy.

"It is never easy but the Indian team has a good set-up. It will be the first time it will be in a world championship without the great man but I strongly believe the India team has a good record and a good team to go out there and do really well," Kumble was quoted as saying in an ICC release.

Describing Sachin Tendulkar's impact on the world cricket, Kumble said it won't be easy to replace someone like Tendulkar in the ODI format.
