They have to be very disciplined and realize that as a unit we have to reach the top at the right time. They will also gather some information about playing in the conditions that will prepare them for the big tournament (T20 World Cup) and if they can manage themselves properly and spend a good amount of time in the nets and the conditions there. If we are able to conform to this, then we will be in a good position. ”
