MUMBAI: New Cricket Board president N Srinivasan ruled out any post-mortem of the Indian team's dismal tour of England in which the side led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni failed to win a single international match.
"The tour did not go as planned. We did not have our best team from the beginning. A lot of players were injured. We have faith in the team. There is no reason why we can't get back (no. 1 spot) there. We have not formed any committee (to do a post-mortem)," said Srinivasan at the conclusion of the Board's 82nd AGM on Monday.
The Indian squad was whitewashed 0-4 by England in the Test rubber and lost the ODI series 0-3, besides losing the lone T20 clash against the hosts.
The Chennai-based businessman reminded that the same team had climbed the pinnacle of ODI and Test cricket before the England tour by winning the World Cup in April and achieving the no. 1 Test rank that it kept for more than a year in its hold.
"Our cricketers have achieved whatever there was to achieve. Two months ago they were heroes having won the World Cup, they were the number one Test team,. They had one bad series. (Now) they need our support," he said.
