“What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year.”
“It seems we have come up to a mental stumbling block. Last year when we won 20 matches consecutively there was a confidence in the team and we did not care what target was we had to aim for or defend. We did it successfully. That confidence has to be regained.”
