You've got to accept how our team sucks. Our bowling is ordinary, our batting's the worst in the world at the moment. There are a few former-greats in our side as extra baggage. And a captain who's struggling with his game, his team, and who's never been that great a thinker as a skipper. This is hardly surprising, these poor performances.
I mentioned pacers started well, although they are quite comfortable now. Anyway they just need a draw and after winning the toss it is already half achieved and the rest easily can be done. What do you say about playing three spinners specially when Jadeja was already there as an option?
certainly they were extremely defensive, although the bowling was not that much threatning.
One aspect could be that they just want to kill the time in the middle. Basically they just need a draw to win the series.
Anyway it is fixed then it is very unfortunate.
