Pace attack behind Caribbean success


Coach Greg Chappell has described the performance of young pace bowlers in India’s Test series win in the Caribbean as outstanding and said the team now had bowlers to win under any condition.

“We have won with three young fast bowlers and it’s a credit. Along with Irfan Pathan, we have got four fast bowlers of variety which would help us play under any condition, inside or outside India. I think we are better equipped than ever before,” Chappell said.

He, however, made a plea not to overreact to series triumph, saying, “I have been in cricket for long to know that you can’t overreact to anything. Good or bad. We shouldn’t get carried away. We have lot of work to do before we become a very good Test team.”

He said it took time to build a strong Test team and people should not expect miracles overnight. “England beat Australia in the Ashes last year and it took them five years to build that team. I don’t know why there is expectation we can do it in 60 minutes. Playing good Test cricket takes 20 to 30 Tests before a player really understands what Test cricket is all about,” Chappell added.
