On the team combination, Tendulkar further said, "You see just the way Bumrah (Jasprit) bowled in Australia was superb and then nice to have someone like Ashish Nehra back, Yuvi back in the squad, Harbhajan is there. All these guys. It's a formidable combination. I would definitely want India to go all the way."

Tendulkar felt India whitewashed Australia in the three- match T20 series with "fabulous cricket".

"The way we played T20 I think fabulous cricket and I actually ended up watching the last ball (of the final T20). I was out somewhere and had just got back, my wife and son were watching.

They called me and said last ball to go and two runs to win. I said there is no doubt we are scoring those two runs and Raina hit that brilliant shot over point," said Tendulkar.
