Statistics might have been painting a different picture but Rahul Dravid is not 'very worried' over Virender Sehwag's poor performance as for the Indian captain his beleaguered deputy remains in 'good form.'

Save an aberration in Abu Dhabi, the gifted Delhi batsman has been failing quite consistently in the shorter version of the game. In the first two matches in Jamaica, Sehwag scored 22 and 12 leaving the team in lurch early in the game.

"I think he (Sehwag) is in good form, he has been batting well at the nets. We are not very worried," Dravid said.

The skipper also said the pressure to perform always came from the fans or media, but the Indian dressing room was pretty confident about its players.

"The players know their roles and the dressing room is pretty relaxed, we don't expect players to do exceedingly well all the time. Most of the times the pressure is from media to perform," Dravid said.

Meanwhile, there was some good news for the Indian attack as team manager Ranjib Biswal said paceman S Sreesanth was recovering well should be in contention for the playing eleven.

However, the team management will take decision on playing Sreesanth on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, West Indian captain Brian Lara lauded his young players but guarded them against complacency.

"Players have risen their game but we need to continue playing the level. We also have to keep guard and put away complacency that has been our problem in recent past," the southpaw said.
