"They (Indian players) are experienced players and they should treat this as another gamer. Our approach to every team and every game has been the same," Shastri said during the shortest press conference conducted by the Indian team on this tour that lasted less than five minutes.
     
"Right from the start, we have approached every game as a knock-out game. The final will be no different for us," he added.
     
There were no specific or elaborate answers given by Shastri during his brief interaction with the media. Shastri, however, said having won a tough game against Bangladesh in the tournament's first match will help his side in the final.

"That was (first match) a good game. Bangladesh was a very good win, to start off with. In the first game, we were under pressure till the last 10 overs, when we bounced back. Every game is a tough game. It's about how you balance things out in batting and bowling. We did an excellent job in that game."
     
Asked if India's dominance against Pakistan in recent times means that the big contest in Asia will now be India versus Bangladesh contest, Shastri said: "I think all teams are very good in the sub-continent. You have your ups and your downs. Last year (2014), Sri Lanka became the World T20
champions here. Bangladesh have played very good cricket too.
