Wrong approach

Apropos of your edit, 'India fails the test' (ET,Mar 23), you are right in saying that both Chappell and Dravid lost the script. The difference between the two teams is in the approach. England rested their unfit and injured Player, but Indian team continued to play injury-prone and unfit Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag. Body language of the Indian players proved that they lost the game before the start of the match by electing to field first on a bowler friendly wicket.
