Bangalore: Signing off on a positive note, in what has been an exceptional year for the Indian cricket team, star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja yesterday promised that they will try to shed the "poor travelers" tag in 2017.

"My team and me want to promise our fans around the world that India will put up a good show overseas in 2017. We are keen to shed the 'poor travelers' tag," Jadeja told reporters on the sidelines of a promotional event. Jadeja, who had returned with impressive figures of seven for 48 to help India outclass England in the fifth Test in Chennai, said the current year has been very good for the national cricket team.

India have won eight Tests out of 11 played this year, thereby equaling their previous record of most wins in a calendar year — eight wins, three losses and three draws out of 14 played in 2010.

Jadeja said the current Indian Test team have been performing exceptionally well because they are very good fitness-wise. "The boys are very fit and spend a lot of time in gym and that is the reason why we are able to give our best on the field," he said.
