After thrashing Sri Lanka in the first two ODIs, Indian captain Virat Kohli today said that his team will be ruthless against Sri Lanka and will try to win each and every game they play.
“What we are trying to achieve is being ruthless rather than letting the situations be. In the past it happened a lot when we had got eight wickets then let the last two players get away with it.
“If you want to be ruthless, want to have big and convincing wins it is important to address the issues that happen in resounding win as well. That’s the kind of hunger and vision that we are trying to instil in this team going into the 2015 World Cup so that every game we play we want to be ruthless, we want to win by big margin.”
Kohli is quite aware that it’s more important for the team to create targets for themselves rather than think about the opposition’s strategy and with the World Cup just 97 days away, the team should treat each match like a knock-out game.
“We want to more focussed on what we want to do rather than who we are playing against.
“We are taking this series and the tri-series (involving Australia and England) to test ourselves and create targets for ourselves rather than worrying about the opposition,” Kohli quoted.
