"It’d help if the India fielders didn’t have their hands in their pockets. It’s not that cold. They need to look interested [in play] and show some desire. If you don’t want to be here, go home."
Tim Bresnan is not amused with the attitude of the Indian cricket team on the field in the third Test at Edgbaston, Birmingham. The Indians folded for 224 in their outing, the fifth consecutive innings where they have been bowled out for less than 300 runs.
What he really meant:
“We like winning but against competitive sides—not deadbeats.It devalues our efforts.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“If the Indians need extra sweaters, they can pick up some from our dressing room.”
The Indians got the money for IPL. This is the cost. Can England be that much better than the top rated test team?
