ODI team will seek inspiration from 2008 triumph: Raina

India was completely outplayed in the four-Test series against Australia, but it could turn out to be a completely different story in the One-Day Internationals tri-series, which includes Australia and Sri Lanka, next month, believes ace batsman Suresh Raina.

Asked whether those in the ODI team are affected by the Test side's poor showing Down Under, Raina replied: "We have not been affected. We are going to Australia with a fresh mindset. Our approach will be completely different since the ODI team and Test team are completely different.

"I believe cricket is all about mental toughness. The ODI side has done remarkably well in the last few years, including winning the World Cup last year. We are not scared of any team, and I am confident we will do well in the tri-series," he added.
