India to revise its strategy in finals

New Delhi:

Indian captain Sourav Ganguly accepted that India needed to rethink their approach to the final of a tournament but felt it was unfair to call his men chokers. India have lost 11 of the 14 finals in one-day tournaments involving more than two teams, the latest being the 25-run debacle against hosts Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup final. Ganguly put up a brave front and has defended his side's performance in recent times. "It depends how you look at it. You can say you lost so many finals. But I don't think chokers is the right term. The term chokers means not playing well under pressure, " said Ganguly. "But if we are making it to the finals, it means we have won the semi-finals where there is equal pressure. We were 2-1 down in Pakistan but we won back-to-back matches to claim the one-day series, " he added. "I accept that we are losing in the finals. We deserve to win a few finals. We have to think about how to approach the final," said the captain who was here for a promotional function where the ICC Champions Trophy was unveiled. Ganguly said that his side is the only other team than Australia which has been winning all over the world. (PTI)
