Taylor picks India to win World Cup

6:50 am on 10 December 2010

The New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor is picking India to win next year's World Cup.

With the 2 sides preparing for the 5th and final one day international in Chennai, Taylor says it would be very hard to bet against India.

Despite the absence of several first-choice players, India have dominated New Zealand to run up a 4-nil lead in the five-match series.

He says India has a young team, but one with plenty of experience.

He says they would be favourites for February's tournament, not just because of the local conditions, but also because of their experience.
