Adelaide: Former Australian batsman Dean Jones says for India to regain the numero uno status in world cricket, they would have to find a "great core of fast bowlers and batsmen" who specialise in all three formats of the game.
"This Indian team craves respect, but the way India are going about it, they will lose more than just respect. The Indians look tired and too slow in the field. They must stop idolising their greats, and start looking to the future.
"The Indians have had a tough 13 months. They have played 16 Tests, 38 one-day internationals, four Twenty20 matches and many IPL matches. India have won a World Cup, but lost massively when they play overseas," said Jones.
