Focus on to win the first test tomorrow: Robin Singh

Bangalore, Oct 12 (UNI) Team India's fielding Coach Robin Singh today said his team would work hard towards achieving a win against Australians if the visiting team effect declaration and the host gets an achievable target.

Speaking to mediapersons after the fourth's days play, he said, ''Now the ball is in Australia's court. Our run chase would depends on how soon they would declare and how much the target is set. But Indian team should put up their best and aim at achieving a victory.'' He said the Aussies would have to make the call.

''I don't know how soon Ricky will take decision, but our players should concentrate on going all out and become successful.'' Robin declined to comment on Skipper Anil Kumble's shoulder injury, saying that it is not his terroitory.

''You can ask Physio. I cannot reply,'' he said.

However, Russel Radhakrishnan, Logistics Manager of the Indian team, who was also present at the press conference said, ''You saw Kumble bowling after the Tea and the injury was not serious.

Kumble is okay, that's all.'' When asked about team's fielding with Watson and Haddin taking quick singles in their 65-run partnership for the sixth wicket, Robin, however, felt the fielding was good today.

Replying to a question about failure of the experienced batting line up when tail enders could add 127 runs in the first innings, the fielding coach merely said the team would be in a position to turn the tables on the opposition tomorrow.
