Young Indian team will Tests in overseas very soon says Dhoni

Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said that his team had pace, ability and aggression to win Tests away from home and just a matter of time before results go in their way. India lost by four wickets to Australia in Saturday's second Test in Brisbane after doing well in 1st test although they lost by 48 runs chasing 364 in the opening Adelaide Test.The loss at Brisbane was India's fifth straight away defeat and their 15th in the last 18 months with only one win against England. India thumped down by 3-1 in England this year and trail Australia 2-0 in a four-match Border-Gavaskar series. "There are plenty of areas we're showing improvement, but we are still not crossing the line," Dhoni said. Dhoni getting ready for his 90th Test match as a player and 60th match as captain with the third Test in Melbourne on Boxing Day said it is important for India to compete against the Australia which is the toughest tour for overseas teams. It is very exciting to see the youngsters putting efforts. It's just a matter of time. It will turn out to be a very consistent side," added the skipper. India has never beaten Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 33 years and have lost their last five Tests there by huge margin.
