Back at the helm as chief coach, Ravi Shastri yesterday made it clear that once the players step into the field, it's their domain and that's how it should be. "They know their job, they are professional cricketers.

Once they step on the field they take over. That is how it should be," said Shastri, who took over as coach after Anil Kumble was forced to quit under controversial circumstances.

For Shastri playing a "fearless brand of cricket" is paramount and that's what he wants from his team. "My role will be to get the guys in frame of mind that they get out and express themselves and play fearless brand of cricket."

Sri Lanka can't be taken lightly at home, he insisted. "Their track record at home is as good as any other team. We would look to improve."
