Sad to see India falter: Kirsten
Friday 07 October 2011

Former India coach Gary Kirsten believes the Indian team is good enough to bounce back after their disappointing tour of England.

Kirsten felt India's performance could be because of loss of momentum.

"It's been a little bit sad to watch them not play well because there was much anticipation around that series in England. Also with Duncan (Fletcher) coming in as new coach and he's just been there for a couple of months, he needs to stamp his mark about what he's going to do. I guess it was always going to be a difficult time upfront," Kirsten told espncricinfo.

"But it has surprised me. The injuries haven't helped. For me, they're a good enough cricket team that they can come back. It has been a disappointment. They probably lost a bit of momentum."

Kirsten also praised England for their performance.

"England are a quality cricket team. They are well coached, have a good structure, good people, they have stability in their team and are putting India under pressure. I don't think they'd been put under pressure (by India) in the whole series."
