India paid price of too much bravado: Naseer Hussain

India paid the price of thinking that preparing turning tracks would be enough to beat England in the just-concluded Test series as the visitors had better tweakers to exploit the dustbowls, feels former England captain Nasser Hussain.

India lost 1-2 against England in the four-match series that concluded with a draw on Monday in Nagpur, which was dominated by the Alastair Cook’s men.

‘India are not the side they were. If I was putting together a composite side from the two teams I would start by picking the whole England attack. England, for once, had better spinners than India in Indian conditions,’ Hussain wrote in his column for ‘The Daily Mail’.

 ‘India went one up and just thought they could prepare a turning pitch and England would crumble. They showed too much bravado and paid very heavily.’
