Surely, one has to give credit to Ravi for the teams success, as it was the same team, which lost in the Test series, barring Suresh Raina from the starting eleven. Karsan added, ''As soon as the Test series was over, Ravi Shastri was inducted as the 'Team Director', and within no time, the transformation has come, which can be justified by the results.''
Ravi has been successful in igniting fire in the minds of the Indian players, which is a must as well with the ICC 2015 Cricket World Cup coming up in Australia early next year. But, one is not sure if Ravi would be in-charge of the Indian team till the world cup, as he had been roped for the ODI series only. The BCCI needs to think about it and extend it till the 2015 world cup, if possible, to yield best possible results for Indian cricket. Karsan adds, ''I am all in for Ravi Shastri. He could help the Indian team perform well in the world cup as well.''
If the Indian team can play like the way they have been doing in the ongoing series, India's could travel to Australia as favourites. The current Indian team seems to be well balanced to defend the title in Australia, which they won in 2011.
Wadekar said, ''This team has been gelling really well and it also has the right combination of experience and youth. But, I feel we should have one more spinner in the squad for the world cup, as the competition will last more than a month so, the pitches can deteriorate and the Indian spinner can play a huge role.''
