The failures amongst the wins


Team India continues its impressive run with its unparalled 15th consecutive successive chase. But what is even more impressive is the fact that this team has been successful without the form and absence of some of its key players - Sachin Tendulkar, Virendra Sehwag and Mohammad Kaif. Amongst all the victories that India has been able to conjure in the last 5 months two of these three players have contributed little to India's cause. That, in my opinion is the loss in all these victories so far ...

The selectors, captain and the coach continued to show a vote of confidence in both Sehwag and Kaif, by not only retaining both of them in the squad but also selecting Virendra Sehwag the captain for the next couple of ODIs. That is indeed a big vote of confidence for him, and if nothing else at least this should produce an inspiring innings from Viru.

With Rahul Dravid already being rested for the next two ODIs, it will be left to Viru to not only make sure that we do not falter and start losing the confidence that has been developed in the last 6 months by losing the games but also to sort out his own form and come to terms with his batting disappointments. It is these non-consequential matches that I really fear the most. There is nothing to play for, or so it seems - from the series stand point at least - but there is a lot to play for, if you are looking to gain confidence and hone your skills.

Moving forward, every game from now on would be critical leading into the World Cup. Although India have played Sri Lanka, Pakistan, South Africa and now England beautifully so far, they still have to face up New Zealand and then of course Australia. And remember, they have not played any team outside the sub continent of pitches that are always a concern to the Indian batting. The only way to make sure that you play well, we need to make sure that we win as many matches at home and gain a lot of confidence. After all half the game is played in the mind!!!

India should not let England come out of their bad form and dominate them in the last three games. That would indeed, despite the series win would be a big failure, one which could lead into a drop in self-confidence and eventually performance leading up to the critical series in WI and then the world cup. It could really be a BIG failure amongst all the beautiful victories! India must stay guarded and focused!
