Windies are a "powerhouse"

Delhi, India, CMC - Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly has identified West Indies among teams to pose the biggest threat to India’s captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's dream of lifting his second Twenty20 World Cup title.

Dhoni led India to the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup in South Africa in 2007 and lifted the 50-over World Cup on home soil last year. India will head to Sri Lanka for the September 18 to October 7 event as one of the favourites but Ganguly remains wary of the West Indies' skills in the shortest form of the sport.
