Colombo: Indian team coach Gary Kirsten on Friday said that India's goal in 2009 is to be the No. 1 team in the world.
India have moved to second place after Australia's loss to New Zealand in the second ODI at the MCG. "Getting to No. 1 is the obvious goal for this year," Kirsten said.
"But it's not playing too much on our minds. To do that, it's important for the basics to be right. We are just trying to focus on taking it game by game and series by series. The team ethic is great. Everyone is preparing really well for a game and we are moving in the right direction."
To be the No. 1 team in the world, Kirsten said that India would have to dominate the opposition consistently.
"It's going to be a fantastic achievement if we can make it 5-0. You want to be a part of the team which is creating this history," he added.
