Mumbai: The Indian team might have been pilloried for suffering a 4-0 loss in the Test series against England but Australian pacer Brett Lee on Friday sympathised with Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men by saying he knew how difficult the conditions can be in "Old Blighty".
Asked about the whitewash suffered by Dhoni's men against England, Lee said while India would be hurt by the rout, he was certain the team would bounce back.
"The loss is going to hurt India. But they are very difficult conditions to play with the ball seaming and swinging around, which we found out in the 2005 Ashes series. I am not surprised they (England) are playing very well," he said on the sidelines of a promotional event for apparel firm Alok Group on Friday.
