Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin believes India, after a clinical performance in Chennai, will have to remain positive in the second Test against Australia starting here today.

“We did well in Chennai. It was a clinical performance and I think we will go out with not thinking too much about what happened previously,” he said when asked about the series against England which India lost 1-2 after winning the first Test.

“We have not spoken honestly about it. It is just a result and numbers don’t go too much into head. We will have to remain positive about it inside the dressing room,” he said talking about India’s strategy to prevent a similar slide against Aussies.

Ashwin said the playing XI would be decided before the game and he had no idea if there would be any changes to the team that played the first Test.
