Well, the way team India missed the chance of a clean sweep in England, it has certainly put a big question mark on their capability of lifting the next world cup. As usual our star batsmen failed to deliver against quality swing bowling.

Captain MS Dhoni has given a word of caution to his team mates and told them to raise their level in case they intend to defend the world cup trophy.

He said, “I think slog bowling is something which I would like to improve as a team because the conditions in Australia and New Zealand will be very different. In New Zealand, there are not many games (for India) but the grounds are not very big. So we cannot use spinners too much after the 40th over. To some extent it will put extra pressure on the fast bowlers to stand up and take more responsibility. It`s really important for them to use the coming games well but at the same time, the next five (ODIs at home) against the West Indies, we will get a fair amount of dew so they might find it tough to execute their yorkers or may not find their reverse swing — it won`t be exactly what we may face later in Australia and New Zealand.”
