 We are basically a strong batting unit. We have a useful bowling attack too. We have players who can step in to bowl if our main bowlers go for runs. I think, overall, we have a balanced side,

Our bowling has improved in bits and pieces, we have done well. Youngsters are doing well. May be in one year we will also put up the best fielding side in the world.

 I have changed my batting a bit, but the situation demanded that kind [attacking] of innings... The ground is a small one, and we were a bit worried about the dew factor. But once they lost 3-4 early wickets, it was difficult for them to get back into the game.
