A lot of questions have been raised on India’s performance in the recently concluded five-Test series against England. The visitors lost the series by 4-1 and were outplayed by the English side on many occasions.
After the series loss, everyone is asking one same question – What went wrong in the preparations of the team? And it seems like Mahendra Singh Dhoni has a correct answer to that important query.
Former Test skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has spoken about India’s poor show in the recent series against England and it raises more questions than ever.
As per reports, the captain cool explained that the lack of practice games before the start of the series made it challenging for the Indian batsmen to conform to the outlandish conditions.
But at the same time, he defended the team by saying, “Indian team missed out on playing practice matches before the series, which is why the batsmen are finding it difficult to adjust. This is a part of the game. We should not forget that India is currently No.1 in the ranking.”
The Indian cricket team was very close on various occasions to win that particular Test match but they let it slip through their hands on various occasions because of lack of concentration and application at crucial times.
