Gambhir backs bowlers

Gambhir backs bowlers

“Our bowlers did a good job. There was not too much in the wicket. Our bowlers were up against a quality side and they had to bowl on a flat track. Still, they did a decent job,” Gambhir said.

Gambhir also defended pacer S Sreesanth, saying fast bowlers take time to rediscover the rhythm after an injury lay-off. “He is coming back after an injury. You have got to give some leverage to him. He tried his best,” Gambhir said.

Meanwhile, centurion Watson said their strategy was to spend as much time in the middle as possible and get some runs under the belt before the first Test.

“Big partnerships can always change the course of the game,” he said.
Praising Katich, Watson said, “He set up the scene for the whole tour.”
