First time in the last five tests that we have been outplayed, we deserve to lose this game, the way we went about thing. Can not really think about conditions when you are playing the game. You can not sit and crib about these things. Sometimes the rub of the green will not go your way. Even when the ball’s doing a bit, you have to pitch it in the right areas. Their guys were relentless, they made us work for the urns. Yeah looking back. I thought we got the combination wrong. .i should be fine, low ere back issue, I’ confident I will be fine in five days time with a bit of reheb.”
Saurav Ganguly was shaking his head in disbelief as wickets fell one after the other, “this is poor, I can’s think of a batting performance like this”, the former captain said as India folded up for 130 to lose by an innings and 159 runs. England are 2-0 up in the series and further humiliation could be the corner.
