New Delhi: Out-of-favour opener Gautam Gambhir on Wednesday refused to believe that fatigue due to excessive cricket was the reason behind India's back-to-back defeats in the ongoing tri-series in the West Indies.
"Not at all...if you talk about fatigue, then it should not only affect the Indian team but also the other teams. They should also get affected by it. Sri Lanka is playing the same amount of cricket as India. If other team has played well, we must acknowledge it. Their efforts should be recognised," said Gambhir. (Pics)
India's tri-series campaign was thrown into disarray after a crushing 161-run defeat against Sri Lanka in Kingston on Tuesday. The Indians first allowed Sri Lanka to post a mammoth 348 for one and then were shot out for 187 in 44.5 overs to suffer their second successive defeat.
