Gavaskar blasts team

Severely critical of the Indian cricket team’s poor show against England in the third Test, former captain Sunil Gavaskar said the old habit of getting complacent after a big win seems to have affected the side during the lost match.

“We might have helped England get back the momentum. Having beaten them at their headquarter in Lord’s, we had them absolutely demoralised.

But I don’t know what we did in the five intervening days after that. We were sloppy on the first morning. We dropped Cook and let him get away. We need to look at our slip fielding and so many other things. There were so many misfields,” the legendary opener told ‘NDTV.’

“It used to happen to Indian teams since 1930s but this Indian team is more professional. They should not be affected by complacency”
