Wright still miss Sachin & Group

CHENNAI - John Wright, the best serving foreign coach (2000-2005 ) of the Indian cricket team, still misses the group of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly , VVS Laxman, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan and the likes.

He took over as the coach past the match-fixing controversy and with Ganguly as the skipper, assists India come back strong. But when you ask Wright if "today's dreadful Indian team is his baby" , the former New Zealand opener sounds enormously humble.

"It was more of a team effort. Players like Sachin, VVS, Sourav, Sehwag wanted to do well for the team and I think that was the main force behind our success . I still miss them," Wright said.

Wright saw how the Indian team was affected when they express some strong negative reply at home after a bad start in the 2003 World Cup.
