An unrepentant Nasser Hussain finally named the three Indian "donkeys."

When former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar pressed Hussain to get the names that he referred to as donkeys few days ago for sloppy fielding, he hinted at Munaf Patel, Praveen Kumar and Parthiv Patil.

Though he did not use the word donkey this time, his conversation on Skysports with Manjrekar suggested the names of these players.

Hussain had made the donkey remark during Wednesday's one-off Twenty20 match between India and England.

Sitting in the commentary box during the fourth over of the England innings, he said: "I would say the difference between the two sides is the fielding. England are all-round a good fielding side. I do believe that India have few...3 or 4 very good fielders and one or two donkeys in the field still."

Hussain is the second ex-England captain to have raked up a controversy in the ongoing India tour of England.

Former England skipper Michael Vaughan too had invited criticism for hinting at the use of Vaseline by Indian batsman V.V.S. Laxman to dodge the Hot Spot.
