Bangalore: Kris Srikkanth, the chairman of India's selection panel, has described India's winless tour of England as a "bad dream" and said the team needed to move ahead and focus on upcoming series, including the tour to Australia that begins in December.
"Australia is the next target," Srikkanth told the Times of India. "We have a couple of home series [against England and West Indies] before that and from those matches we'll try and pick the best possible combination for Australia. We have to make up for the loss in England."
Srikkanth, whose tenure was extended by the BCCI at the AGM on September 19, welcomed the appointment of Mohinder Amarnath to the selection panel as the North Zone representative. "Jimmy [Amarnath] is going to add a lot of value," he said. "We are delighted to have him around us. He comes across as someone who has plenty of cricket experience and that will help us in selection matters."
