He added that all the thrashing received by Team India, they all deserve it after the performance given by them in the Test series.
Boycott added in his column, "India has come to England complacently and arrogantly thinking they can bat the same way and everything will be OK on the day. Any time you do not plan and work at your cricket, the game will kick you up the backside, and India deserve the thrashing they are getting,"
So far, the Indian players have let themselves and their supporters down. The batting has been so naive and irresponsible, it has bordered on stupidity. Wafting drives attempting outswingers is thoughtless,"
There is no doubt that India is on the verge of losing the test series against England after losing a total of two first test in the series. One more loss and the series will be out of their hands.
However, they did show a lot of fight that is done by them at Edgbaston but the embarrassing loss in the test in Lord’s has really being a shattering point for the team. They are hoping to stave the series defeat in the third test match that starts at Trent Bridge. However, their performance has highly demotivated their fans and all of them have lashed out on the team for their gameplay.
