New Delhi: Team India may have disappointed their fans in the T20 World Cup this time but coach Gary Kirsten believes that they will come back strongly in the 2010 edition of the event which is just eight months away.
"We will surely bounce back in the next edition of the World Cup," Kirsten said.
India, who were the champions in the first edition in 2007, did not even reach the semifinals, losing all their super 8 matches.
Indian coach once again stressed on the importance of preserving Test cricket.
"We just need to be careful. T20 and the Indian Premier League are a great product, very popular. But Tests is what the game stands for. It's been around for so long," he told a news channel.

Kirsten also stressed the need for playing IPL in India which was held in South Africa this year.
"South African fans enjoyed it immensely. It was a wonderful experience for them but IPL should remain in India because it's an Indian product," he said.
