We can be the third-best ODI team by then.

We'll be a decent T20 side by then. We'll still lack power hitters. There needs to be a culture of players working out and gaining muscle mass at youth levels. I think we'll see and benefit from that in the next 10 years after 2026.

In terms of skill, we'll have the skill to be competitive in Tests. Right now, we mainly lack the attack the pick up 20 wickets with fast bowling being the biggest weakness. In a few years, some of the promising, young pacers will be old enough to play Tests regularly without the fear of them getting injured.

Mentally, right now, we are far behind. We'll improve mentally, but there'll still be room for improvement.

All in all, I think we'll start winning some Tests by then but still won't be performing at our full potential.
