Batsmen must take responsibility – Dhoni

MS Dhoni admitted that India were outplayed in most departments as they slumped to a 2-1 series defeat against England, their first series loss on home soil since 2004.

England comfortably batted out the final day in Nagpur as India managed just one more wicket, with the home side’s ambitions of levelling the series hindered by a lifeless pitch. However, over the previous two Tests in Mumbai and Kolkata there had been considerable daylight between the teams and Dhoni picked out James Anderson’s role and India’s lack of runs for special mention.

“We thought our spinners were right on the mark but the difference on the bowling side was James Anderson,” he said at the post-match presentation. “He bowled really well.

Apart from that the batsmen have to take the responsibility for not putting enough runs on the board.”Read more
