India urged to show more fight against England
India have been urged to inject a bit of passion and fight into their play to stop England from running away with the third Test at Edgbaston.
The visitors were bowled out for 224 in their first innings, with Stuart Broad, Tim Bresnan and James Anderson dominating again with aggressive and accurate bowling.
England immediately gave a strong reply with their batting as Andrew Strauss and Alistair Cook were put under little pressure, allowing the captain to make his first 50 of the summer before the opening day was out.
Covering the match for BBC Sport, former England batsman and commentator Geoff Boycott said India must start building pressure, noting that there is no "meanness" in their bowling.
Offering some advice to the visitors, ex-England captain Michael Vaughan said: "Bowl the odd silly ball, bowl the odd bouncer, get a few verbals flying, make them nasty, fire it up, distract them, do something. It's too easy for England."
Cricket fans can book npower Test match tickets to see if India can rescue the game at Edgbaston or end the series on a high at the Oval next week.
