“India looked like Bangladesh in disguise.”
Geoffrey Boycott is scathing in his criticism of the Indian cricket team. “Their ground fielding was atrocious, their bowling was wayward and lacking thought.” says the Yorkshire great.
What he really meant:
“I’m sure Bangladesh would have put up a better fight. England beat Sri Lanka 1-0 in three Tests, and yet the No.1 side are down 0-2 in two. Yeah, I forget, they won’t be No.1 after this series.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Duncan, you can go home now. I’d like to coach this Indian side.”
