London: Former India cricket captain Sourav Ganguly has said flawed approach to spin bowling and failure to score runs freely are the main factors that are troubling England in the ODIs.

As India close in on a series-win in the ODIs, Ganguly feels that the "problems of Alastair Cook and Co. are as much in their heads as out on the pitch".

"There are two things I think England are getting wrong when it comes to their one-day batting. They're thinking getting to 300 is a problem and is such a hard thing to do. But why? Their mental approach has to change. Why is it that an India team can just come over here and get 300," Ganguly was quoted as saying by The Mirror.
