Indian Cricket Team nowadays have transformed into a most successful and challenging team in Cricket and also have been in major finals many a times but could be successful in lifting the cup and face the challenge of the final. What could be the problem behind this and what could be the right solutions with such a brilliant team not making it all in the main finals.

Will definitely India has a big problem in the finals and the biggest reason for this I personally feel is that we have too many young players in our team who have a lack of experience in playing the finals. No matter what type of competition it is, a finder has a completely different type of pressure on the players and if they do not have that much experience pain they are definitely going to choke in the finals. I do say that they don't have the talent to win the final matches but the thing is when we get a competitive team in the finals then maximum time we will be choking in those matches because our young players are not able to take the pressure. Apart from this there is too much pressure in our team right now because any player can be dropped at any time which does not give them the freedom to play their natural game and this is a big problem. A team like Australia is performing so consistently because their players are not fighting for their place. They are sure that they are going to play the next match and so they have the guts to play freely and that is the reason why they can do something which we cannot even think of. Apart from that I think the inexperience of the new captain is showing off in lot of times with very basic mistakes and by him in his captaincy and this is the reason why we are losing too many matches in the crucial stages.

as i think most of the time indian players plays for individual and most of the indian victory is because of individual performance.now it seems to be changed,so we can hope that Team INDIA plays like a team not as 11 individual teams.

Losing in finals has become india's bane. May be that is why a world cup victory in 1983 and a victory in 20-20 is so cherished...

obviously i think. they play extraordinary well in preliminery games most of the times. they are just doing blunders in finals. i think they just can't hold their nerves in Finals.
