What he said:
“We have got players who have scored 200s and 300s, you know, in their CVs.”
Duncan Fletcher that his Indian side has the players to pull off a miracle in the third Test at Edgbaston.The Indians were routed for 224 on the first day and it’s been a leather chase ever since in the field.
What he really meant:
“Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid and Gautam Gambhir. Can you count them out?”
What he definitely didn’t:
“I wish those 200s and 300s could be added to the Indian score—at the start of each innings. Why do they have to start from zero all over?”
