-run mark in the one-dayers, said team's success mattered to him more than personal milestones.

''The only personal milestone I'm looking forward to is to get my two hands on the trophy. I want the Caribbean cricket to be back where it belongs -- on the top,'' Lara stressed.

The southpaw was also not worried over his less-than-impressive batting record in India and said it was team's performace more than his own which mattered to him more.

''I've not played much of an ODI cricket in India. May be that could be one of the reasons (of my poor record). However, I'm not too concerned about my individual performance. Obviously, me batting well is important for the team's success. I'll try to ensure that I fit into the team's scheme of things.'' With the world cup being just six months away, Lara said the Champions Trophy would provide an opportunity for the teams to judge their potential before the showdown in the Caribbean.

He said his team with a mix a of youth and experience would get its act together before cricket's biggest extranaganza.
