We never played to our potential: Ganguly

Colombo:

Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly today admitted that the team never played to its potential throughout the Asia Cup and must find out a way to come out firing on all cylinders after a break. "We did not play to our potential throughout the tournament. We were playing after a break but breaks will be there in international cricket. We need to find some way to come back to form immediately after a break," Ganguly said after the Indians lost the final by 25 runs against Sri Lanka here. Attributing today's loss to his batsmen's failure to build any kind of partnership, Ganguly said the total of 228 was very gettable but the team lost the plot. Batting debacle "The total of 228 was always chaseable. Sri Lanka bowled well but we should have done better... I don't think we got partnerships." The Indian skipper said the team would have to work on all aspects of the game -- batting, bowling, fielding -- with commitment and intensity before the next assignment. "We need to get our health's right before the tournaments." India will now play a three-nation tournament in Amsterdam, Holland from August 21-28 and will participate in the Natwest Trophy in England next month before the ICC Champions Trophy tournament.
