Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has said his team will only be thinking of moving in one direction, and that is "up", when taking on the West Indies and Sri Lanka in a 13-day tri-series tournament that gets underway in the West Indies from Friday.
Participating in captains interaction with the media here ahead of the tri-series, Dhoni said: "The expectations will pretty much remain the same when it comes to Indian cricket..if things are moving, it will only move in one direction which is up."
Dhoni, who was speaking just days after India had won the ICC Champions Trophy tournament in the United Kingdom, further said: "What is very important for us is not to look too far ahead. We will take it series by series."
"We have just finished a world tournament in the UK, and now, we are in the West Indies. First, we will have to see the two teams which are ahead of us. The performance was really good in the UK, but we need to continue." It maybe recalled that India beat England in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy by five runs.
Apart from Dhoni, West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo and Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews said they were upbeat about their chances in the Celkon Mobile Cup tournament. All three promised some exciting and entertaining cricket for Caribbean fans. Bravo, Dhoni and Mathews pledged to bring their "A" game in the June 28 to July 11 tournament.
