A win will make a difference: Pathan

Sydney, Feb 25: India's all-rounder Irfan Pathan has said, winning games will make a difference as they have been facing a few issues in the tri-series off late, during the press conference ahead of their Sunday's clash against Australia on Friday.

According to reports, Team India has sorted out the mess that troubled the players regarding the rotation policy.

A few days ago, verbal spats between Virender Sehwag and captain MS Dhoni had created a flutter, and was sorted out after BCCI took an initiative regarding the same which resulted in players exchanging smiles.

Team India, turned up for the practice session after a two-day break ahead of their clash against Australia on Sunday.

India, having lost a couple of matches in the series so far, they need to win both the ODIs in order to qualify for the final. Players aware of this fact, were keen on putting up a good fight in the remaining one-dayers.

As soon as the press conference started, reporters started off with a predictable question as they asked Pathan about the cold-war between MS Dhoni and Virender Sehwag.

"Definitely, I've been hearing things but it's not like that," said Irfan. "It's a matter of winning big games and once we start winning, everything will vanish by itself. The whole team has only one goal which is to win the next two matches."

Pathan made his point clear as he said, Team India's goal is to win the next two matches, and stressed on winning matches which could sort out the problems as well.

Regarding his good performance in the tri-series, he said, It's been so far so good. I'm pleased to have made a good comeback."
