We need to do better in Asia Cup, says Raina

Harare: Relieved to have finished the Zimbabwe tour winning both the Twenty20 Internationals, India captain Suresh Raina on Sunday said the team needs to do better in Asia Cup in Sri Lanka.

Raina has preformed consistently on the tour and on Sunday led India to its second consecutive win in the T20s with an attacking unbeaten 72.

“By the grace of God it has been a great last few weeks. Rohit (Sharma), Virat (Kohli) and the bowlers have done well. Lot of hard work required in the Asia Cup. I’ve enjoyed the tour,” Raina, chosen Man-of-the-Match and Man-of-the series, said after the match.

Seven members of the current Indian squad in Zimbabwe will leave straight for Sri Lanka on Monday.

India struggled against Zimbabwe in the ODI tri-series as they lost both the matches against them and had failed to qualify for the final.

Zimbabwe captain Elton Chigumbura was elated at his side’s improved show.

“We were about 20 short but the batters did better than yesterday. We’ve been improving. Captaincy has been good so far and help from other senior players has been good. I’m just one game away from getting back to form. I just want to thank all our supporters,” Chigumbura said.
