Cardiff: What was expected to be a tight contest, turned out to be a fight between David and Goliath. The massive 243-run win against Australia in a practice match here on Tuesday may look impressive on paper, but Team India is still a worried lot.
Speaking to reporters at the National Cricket Centre at Swalec Stadium, Ashwin revealed coach Duncan Fletcher's forehead is creased because in successive games, the top order failed to fire. The Indian off-spinner said coach Duncan Fletcher "is addressing the issue, but the players will have to deliver on the field."
"Fletcher has got vast experience of English conditions. He has been passing knowledge to the team but it is up to us to take it forward," Ashwin told reporters, adding: "He (Fletcher) has told our batsmen runs will come if you stay at the wicket."
