New Delhi:  The whole nation including Indian contingent was on the seventh sky when team India registered a historic win at Lord's after 28 years little realising they need to have their ears on the ground to hear the celebrations of English players whenever they dismissed top order Indian batsmen.

The team management was so soaked in ecstasy that they simply ignored the fact that we did not win because we played well…England lost because they fell prey to an obvious ploy, losing six wickets trying to hook or pull Ishant Sharma's barrage of short pitched balls.

Captain Dhoni and some of the ex players including Sunil Gavaskar and Engineer have come down heavily on top batsmen but was it only the batsmen who let India down….? NO……same is the case with our fielding as well as bowling.
