Ranchi: Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said the team was not under any pressure to lift the cricket World Cup after 28 years and saw the expectations of the people as a faith in their talent.
"I don't think we felt burdened to win the World Cup since India's last victory in 1983, it was an achievement by our country back then," Dhoni said during the ICC Cricket World Radio Show.
"We were expected to win every game in the event and people knew we were talented to go all the way. It was an opportunity for us to fulfill. The players were in good nick for the whole tournament and although we struggled on occasions, the bowlers did well to defend the modest total."
