Mohali: Indian coach John Wright on Saturday said that his boys have a lot to learn in fielding and shot selection according to nature of the pitch to improve their performance."Certain shots are played by Indian cricketers happily on home pitches, but on the other wickets they have to be careful. This scenario needs improvement," Wright told reporters during the Indian team's practice session in Mohali ahead of the first Test against England starting on Monday. "The players also have to learn more in the area of fielding and running between the wickets," he said. Reviewing the South African series as tough, Wright said the tour gave the players a good exposure. He said that wicket in Mohali is good a track though not as green as the strips in South Africa. Refusing to comment on the playing eleven, Wright said it was too premature to tell about combinations.Skipper Saurav Ganguly, who did not arrive with the team, will come on Sunday the coach said.
