Chennai: BCCI Chief selector Krish Srikkanth on Saturday said the two consecutive Test defeats in Australia have a lot do with poor batting rather than Mahendra Singh Dhoni's captaincy which has come under sharp criticism.
"Our batting didn't click as a unit. It is a bit surprising as we were confident of a good show in Australia. But we must admit that Australia have played better cricket than us. There is no point trying to find excuses and we need to move on," Srikkanth said here.
Asked about Dhoni's captaincy which has been criticised by former greats like Ian Chappell and Wasim Akram, Srikkanth said it would be unfair to single out his captaincy for the poor performance.
