Kingston (Jamaica): It has not even been a week since India won the Champions Trophy, but Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said the team is done with the celebrations and firmly focused on the tri-series against West Indies and Sri Lanka that starts today.
     
"The demands remain the same. The expectation when it comes to the Indian cricket team has always been the same," Dhoni said at the launch of the Celkon Mobile Cup.
     
"If it's moving, it only moves in one direction, it goes up. It doesn't matter whether we have won the last series or lost or what has happened on the field," he explained.
     
India plays West Indies in their first game at the Sabina Park on Sunday.
     
Dhoni attributed the team's recent success to a friendly dressing room atmosphere where the players "enjoy each other’s success".
     
The Champions Trophy triumph in England means India, the numero uno in ICC rankings, now hold both the major ODI titles following their victory in the World Cup on home soil two years ago.
     
Dhoni also added that he was lucky to have players at his disposal who are not afraid of pressure.
     
"I'm fortunate to have the players in the side to really soak up the pressure," he said.
