Refusing to be bogged down by critics of his "experiments" with the Indian cricket team, coach Greg Chappell on Sunday said the side would continue to try out new things.
"We will keep trying different things in different games. Sometimes they will look normal, at other times they may look out of the ordinary," Chappell told a news conference in Mumbai ahead of the final one-day match against South Africa.
"It's a long journey to the 2007 World Cup and we will continue to do what needs to be done irrespective of what others think," the Australian said.
"Tomorrow is a new game and we really cannot worry about the past."
Chappell, whose tenure as Indian coach extends till the World Cup in the West Indies in 2007, said the team had learned a lot by playing against tough teams like South Africa and Sri Lanka.
"It's a very good thing that we have been challenged by a team like South Africa who play very good cricket. It's a great challenge and a big learning experience for all of us," he said.
"The benefits of this series will be seen in a few months or within a year."
