Will Indian team continue to give consistant performance?

Indian cricket team is on the top right now. It is performing very well. The team under Dhoni's captaincy has been considered the best of all times by many experts. All the players are in good form. But at the same time they are getting a lot of attention from media. Players are getting contracts for endorsements of various products. Do you think all this will affect their performance over a period of time? Will India play consistently in the years to come?

Dhoni has a great leading skill. He can encourage his team mates like anything. Secondly, we have a right blend of talented experienced and youngster players in the team. Thus, I think India will keep on performing provided the team management doesn't experiment with the current team combination. As far as media coverage and contracts for endorsements are concerned it is being governed by BCCI as player have a contract regarding this with it.

Even Gangully had great leading skills. Remember the NatWest Series? we performed consistently. But then the team went down when there was politics within the team. Everyone knows the Greg Chappel case. The team was not performing well at that time. With the current team, you never know. What do you think?

You really cant predict any team until & unless the team consistently plays for 2-3 years.For that to happen you need players of the class of Sachin & Dravid.You cant even imagine a replacement for the 2 of them.Sachin is still around & we have Gambhir who has taken the world by storm.You cant really rely on Sehwag , Raina , Yuvi , Rohit , Pathan & the rest of the batsmen.They might play well in patches.So till you really find players of Sachin's & Dravid's class there is no chance of India emulating the Aussie feat of considering to be the best team. Players who have firm head on their shoulders will continue to shine in cricket even if they have more endorsements.They should know that they got the endorsements just coz' they played cricket well.
