India simply not good enough, says Dhoni

LONDON, (Reuters) – India captain MS Dhoni admitted his team had simply not been good enough after losing the five-match test series against England 3-1 yesterday.

The touring side played excellently to win the second test at Lord’s after losing the toss on a difficult wicket to bat on but they were blown away in the last three matches following a series of spectacular batting collapses.

“The last three tests, we were not up to the mark. We never competed,” Dhoni said at the presentation ceremony following his team’s defeat by an innings and 244 runs in the final test at The Oval.

“Today’s batting was a reflection of a loss of confidence. It’s disappointing. The youngsters will have learned, not many will have played here. It’s important for them.
