The Lord’s fallout: Gautam Gambhir lashes out at Virat Kohli's Team India

Shastri isn't one to brood too long, though. "He has other interests outside of cricket and is not just concentrating on the game all the time, which I think is great because that's why he plays so brilliantly on the field". There was no fight shown by the Indian batters and yes the conditions were a little hard in both the innings for them, but you don't expect this team to bundle out in literally three days.

"When the occasion demands, it's a case of mental resolve, how you put mind over matter". Shastri has faced harsh criticism after India went down at Edgbaston and Lord's to lose the first two Tests of the five-match series.

Shastri himself has been in the firing line - Harbhajan Singh said the coach must be made accountable. "[Our batsmen] should be prepared to look ugly and dirty and show some grit". Sangakkara, in an exclusive interview to PTI, stressed on the lack of practice matches for the Indian team and specified that had things been different on that front, the batsmen might have fared better. England, besides tormenting India with swing bowling, have had contributions from skipper Joe Root (80), Jonny Bairstow (70, 93), Sam Curran (63) and Chris Woakes (137 no) with the bat.

"Kohli... he is feeling much better. You saw him in the nets, he is moving much better and improving by the day", he said. And Rishabh Pant making his Test debut? You have to find that confidence to answer the questions asked by English bowlers in training and in practice games, Sangakkara added.

Kumar Sangakkara has given the struggling Indian batsmen benefit of the doubt, pointing out that it is unfair to call the team "overdependent" on its captain Virat Kohli.


"Just believe in yourself".

"I told them: 'You have been in this position couple of times before and you have responded. We're here, without a negative bone, wanting to play to win". "We have done it in South Africa we lost the first two Test matches and then we bounced back in Johannesburg and won that Test match", the 31-year-old said. "We are here without a negative bone, wanting to play to win, as simple as that".

Shastri stated that he was looking forward to seeing Ben Stokes restored to England's line-up.

"When he plays cricket, he is 100 percent focused on it". He is a terrific cricketer. If he is cleared by the courts, what's the reason for him not to play? A side like England, when they play like that, they can outplay anybody'. Neither spinner Kuldeep or R Ashwin took a wicket, and England leg-spinner Adil Rashid did not bowl.

Ravi Shastri, like Kohli, also conceded the team had made a blunder by including an extra spinner for the Lord's Test where conditions favoured seam bowling. It might have helped.
