Yeah, it is surely moving forward.. A lot of youngsters have been inducted into the side which has improved the team standards a lot as the team is no longer dependent on our old heroes.. So, its good for the team as well as for all the Indian fans.. Envy for all other teams..LOL...

Yes certainly it is moving forward in the right direction and it will continue to move in the right direction. I think we are winning tough matches now.One or two losses will not dampen the morale of the team for sure,so nothing to worry,we are surely winning and we are surely doing very good.

what you are thinking is right.our players are not performing consistently as aussies.it may be because our players are nto concentrating on there stamina and they are not withstanding the pressure.aussies players know how to play in pressure because of there county matches but here our ranji is not that much good.

I see indian team set to move forward. They havent moved forward yet to win great games and names but i think they are all set for it. The young team now has won a lot of matches and they seem to enjoy the game to the maximum extent. so if this continues, i think indian cricket team has got all the potential to become world champions. Big players and their performance is not the matter now, how the young players are going to manage is what is important.

The problem is our players are not concentrating enough on stamina and strength. Our bowlers are not working hard enough. And also, we are not preparing enough to play on fast and bouncy pitches. I really wonder if our batsmen are prepared enough to play on the bouncy pitches of Australia. We have been saying the same thing for the 20 years. India has to improve, but still we are not there. And I have always noticed, whenever a talented bowler like Munaf or Pathan comes into the team, they are only good for the first one year, and later they lose steam. A talented batsman like Dhoni was doing really well when he was promoted up the order, but Chappell insteand promoted Pathan with the dream of making an all-rounder and ended up making nothing out him and his slump in form started from there. And too many people putting their brains in the team management is spoiling the broth. As long as people are not occupying the selection chair, they criticise the ones who are occupying it. But when they replace the selectors, they do the same mistakes. Now Vengsarkar is doing the same thing what Kiran More did with Ganguly. Instead of taking decision in the interest of the game, he's playing his ego on Dravid. These things are not going to do any good to the team. As long as these dirty politics exist, things can never improve.
