Coach Dravid says India must improve through the middle overs

A 3-0 drubbing in SA is a timely reminder that India need to overhaul their approach to one-day cricket and head coach Rahul Dravid says the problem lies in how they fared in the middle overs both with bat and ball.

With India also missing all-rounders Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, and Washington Sundar due to injury, Dravid said the series was an"eye-opener" and that their conservative batting was down to a lack of team balance."We certainly could do better in the middle overs," the former India captain told reporters after Sunday's loss, which followed their 2-1 defeat in the preceding test series.

"We understand the template, and a large part of that template is dependent on the balance of your squad."Some of the guys who really help us balance out the squad and give us those all-round options at number six, seven and eight were not available for selection.
