New Delhi:Former India captain Kapil Dev has offered a suggestion to the Team India think tank on their extended run of losing in tournament finals. "We have the talent, technique, and the right blend of youth and experience. Yet something goes wrong somewhere in the final. You cannot keep on ignoring the fact they we are losing one final after another."

"The team think tank should sit down and analyse this problem and find out the areas where we go wrong in the final. It is high time we won a final," said the legendary all-rounder on the sidelines of a promotional press conference for the Delhi half marathon, scheduled to take place on October 16.

On a question as what he thought could be the key reason, Kapil said,"There is no use in pointing fingers at any individual player. Maybe there is not enough commitment, or maybe they are not hungry enough.." Conscious of the fact that his recent statements to the media have set a debate, Kapil then added: "I am using the word 'maybe' for a reason. Please don't put words in my mouth."

Kapil, though, is not in favour of drastic changes. "There is no point in chopping and changing people. The board has to form a policy, which outlines where they want Indian cricket to be after the next 10 years. In my playing days, there was no policy. But with so much resources available, there is a need to have one now," he said.
