Bangalore:Admitting that the Men in Blue had a poor record in Sri Lanka, vice captain Virender Sehwag exuded confidence that the team is determined to put up a good show in the forthcoming tri-series in the island-nation.

The series, which gets under way on August 14 also features South Africa.

Addressing a press conference at the end of the week-long fitness camp at the National Cricket Academy here, he said that during the recent visit to Sri Lanka, Team India's performance was not up to the mark, but this time the team was serious and wanted to set the record right.

''During the last season, we lost to Sri Lanka. This time we are serious and we are determined to put up a good show,'' he added.

To a question, the ace opener said he was not worried about whom he would partner with to open the innings, but what was more important was performing well and winning the match.

''Change of openers depends on the strategy we adopt before the start of the match,'' he added.

To another question, Sehwag opined that weather condition in Sri Lanka might not pose a major problem to the team.

Asked whether he felt that coach Greg Chappell was experimenting too much, he said ''there is nothing wrong in experimenting as long as it is aimed at winning the match. Winning is important for the team and it can be with changing strategies frequently.''
