IANS  |  Ahmedabad 

may not be among the traditional powers at the World Cup, but their star player Temi Tope Adewalure insists that his team is in with a chance to win the title at the ongoing edition.

"Our aim is to win. We are actually the underdogs coming into this competition and we are going to put our best foot forward. This is such a great platform and a new experience for all of us, but we are focused on winning.

"As for our chances, the team has a fantastic balance. We just need to hold on to that balance, play to our full potential and we'll be unstoppable," the player told the official website of the 2016 World Cup.

"I think it's the passion among us for kabaddi. With passion as our weapon, we are capable of showing the world we could be a force to reckon with and use that as our motivation to do well in the 2016 World Cup," Adewalure added.

"It's an honour to represent your country. We've got a tightly knit team who share a good understanding with each other and I'm really excited to play with this team."

lost to Bangladesh by a substantial 18-52 margin in their opening clash of the competition. But they bounced back with a convincing 69-25 win over Australia. Adewalure was the star for during the clash against Australia with a total of 22 points, of which 20 were raid points.

With next facing Argentina on Friday, Adewalure asserted that he is looking forward to continuing his run of good form.

"I like to think of myself as an all-rounder. Personally though, I like to attack, especially with my quick feet movements. I look to bag a couple of points for my team and I think that would be beneficial," he said.

Adewalure was all praise for captain Someshwar Kalia and coach Ashok Das.

"Someshwar has a lot of experience and even his knowledge of the sport are reasons why he has been handed over the captaincy. He's been playing the sport for quite sometime now and he gives his inputs whenever required and encourages us in what we're doing which helps boost our morale," he said.

"Like our captain, our coach is an amazing person. We might be playing on the mat, but our coach is the one who points us in the right direction, guiding us along the way, strategising the game, teaching us top techniques to help tackle the opposition," Adewalure added.

"We are going to give our best for that man and make him proud. He's been fantastic and he deserves it."
