‘Trying to clean up the late errors’

After every training session, India’s Australian coach, Michael Nobbs, makes it a point to deliver a lesson on discipline. He believes it would help his wards commit fewer errors at crucial junctures.

Indians, says Nobbs, have a tendency to become error prone towards the fag end of the match. "Committing errors under pressure that too in the dying minutes is like committing suicide," Nobbs said after the team's morning session on Monday.

Keeping in view the upcoming series against South Africa and the Olympic Qualifiers, the team has shifted base from Bangalore to the National Stadium here.

Talking about the team's prospect in the February Qualifiers, Nobbs said, "Home advantage is fine, but the team has to work its way up very cautiously. I mean, fewer errors in the dying moments," he said.

The coach also felt the team would benefit by adapting attacking style of play for the Qualifiers. "Attack is the best form of defence. Hence, the more you charge into the rival citadel, the more goal-scoring chances you get," he said.
