India have already gave up the Border-Gavaskar Trophy to Australia after trailing the 4 match series 2-0 after managing a draw in the 3rd   cricket Test, but Team Director Ravi Shastri is not disturbed about the score and still believes in his young team India

Ravi Shastri told Star Sports that he is not disturbed about the score because of the way they have played in the previous matches. He has seen teams in the past, where they have gone down, hooked under pressure and there has been no competition.

The average age of this side is 26 years old, full of young blood. He said, one year and after that we will get to see a bullet team. He also said that this team will be ready to play anywhere.

The tourists lost the 1st match in Adelaide by 48 runs and conceded the 2nd match in Brisbane by four wickets before putting up a fight at the Melbourne.

The former Indian skipper, who played 80 Tests and 150 One Day Internationals during his 11 year old career said some areas are there they have to work extra to make that perfect. Like better batting from the tail. They have to work on managing the pressure, and batting collapses. He believes they will rectify themselves in the near future.

Everyone in Australia came to know that this Indian team has not just come Australia to play cricket. They have come there to compete and win. And that is the most crucial thing for Ravi Shastri. The score does not matter. “To hell with the scoreline,” he added.

Ravi Shastri, commented that the India team does miss a Sourav Ganguly like aggressive all-rounder.

He said that they need a batsman in the top six line up who can bowl, someone like Sourav Ganguly. When Sourav Ganguly played he could bowl 10 or 15 overs. A medium-pace bowling all-rounder overseas. If you have that, it will be a big advantage for the team. And that will be the struggle, he added.
