Former Indian Captain and cricket commentator Sourav Ganguly on Tuesday said India needs a good wicket to win, but should concentrate more on the game rather than the 22 yards.
Sourav Ganguly, who is Kolkata as the panelist for STAR Cricket's presentation, also said," I was disappointed with the way our batsmen approached the English spinners. We need to concentrate better and use our feet more often to deny Panesar (Monty Panesar) and Swann (Graeme Swann) any advantage."
Ganguly is also accompanied by experts like Kapil Dev, Navjot Singh Sidhu, Ramiz Raza and Arun Lal to the third test match of the India England Test series at the Eden Gardens that starts from Dec 5.
"Conditions are likely to be prone towards the home team. But cricket and country should come before ground conditions," said Kapil.
Sidhu commented, "England has shown much progress on our grounds. The Indian team needs right arm leg spinner and turning track to act as the strongest strategies."
Former Pakistani player Ramiz Raza said, "The selection has to be strong with special emphasis to fielding and game tactics for the Indian team. Two strong teams adapting to different conditions and competing hard is a perfect recipe for a blockbuster series like this."
"Batting has been our strength from the beginning, but if the wicket is bad, it depends much on luck. Though there will be an automatic turn of the pitch on the 4th and 5th day of the match," said Arun.
