India's World Cup-winning coach Gary Kirsten said the team India misfiring before WC is a good thing and has a really good chance of repeating their 2011 success. Speaking to media persons at a city hotel here, Kirsten revealed that the Indians have an "incredibly" strong team which the opponents would find tough to beat in the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, beginning February 14. "The Indians have a really good chance of retaining the trophy. They have produced a new team after 2011 and they have had incredible success. I think the Champions Trophy win was a tremendous event for them and they have an incredibly strong side, which will be tough to beat," Kirsten said. Asked if fielding an injured player can become a liability for the team, the 47-year-old added that it depends on the circumstances and the balance of the team. "They have all forgotten about 2011 and are focusing on the upcoming World Cup. New time, renewed hopes, they will be doing their best to retain the trophy." Kirsten was the Indian cricket team's coach from 2008 to 2011.
