Suresh Raina wants to use T20 for ODI comeback

So we will see where I can fit in. Bhuvneshwar has played a lot in the tour which comes to end with the match on Saturday.

Only New Zealand pair Martin Guptill (2,271) and Brendon McCullum (2,140) have scored more runs in the shorter format of the global game, although Kohli has played 20 and 17 fewer innings respectively. "Every Indian game is very important for me right now".

Meanwhile, the Nidahas T20I tri-series starts in Colombo with the Sri Lanka-India match on March 6. "But a team victory is more important than individual performances".

Raina's focus will be to play his natural game in the opportunities he gets. That's the message I've got from the support staff.

Raina said the faith was "really important" for him and explained that his approach was to go hard in the first six overs.

Arguably, Chahal bowls a more consistent line than Kuldeep Yadav and this explains latter's omission from the first two games. "It is very important to play well in the first six overs", Raina said. When you look to target the first six overs in T20s, you have to play your shots.

"You need to take chances in the first six overs when you are looking to chase down a total or put up big runs, and that's what we have done as a batting unit", Raina said.

Raina returned to the squad after he last played in the shortest format for India in February a year ago while he last played an ODI in July 2015.

"We all had a word in team meeting (regarding the importance of the game)". When you have been doing well in every game, then you need to finish well too. That is what Virat is all about. And top of that, we have guys like (Mahendra Singh) Dhoni and (head coach) Ravi bhai (Shastri) who tell us that when you are playing deciders, it is all about enjoyment.

Raina also talked about the World Cup next year and said that it is still a long road to the World Cup in England. Despite having a long list of admirers in the world of cricket, Indian skipper has added another special name in the form of Australian skipper Steve Smith. "First we have the tri series in Sri Lanka, then we have the IPL, so we need to keep fresh, keep winning and doing the right processes", the occasional off-spinner said.

Raina, though cautioned against any notions pointing towards a weak Indian bowling attack, adding that the credit for the hosts' win lied in the ability of the batsmen and not the mistakes of the bowlers.

As spectacular as the latter half of the South African innings was in Centurion - thanks to an extraordinary innings from Henrich Klaasen and a matured hand from Duminy - the start was just as boring. They were using a lot of variation like the slower ball.
