Three former India captains Sourav Ganguly, Bishen Singh Bedi and Virender Sehwag have criticised the Indian team after their horrible surrender at Lord’s. Read what they said

Sourav Ganguly

"It is difficult to understand and the worst bit is that there are three Test matches to go and I don’t know how they will solve their problems.There is not a lot that the Indian team can do for the next Test, maybe they can bring Shikhar Dhawan back in the side, speak to Cheteshwar Pujara that it is good that he survived 70 deliveries, but the team needs runs off so many deliveries to relieve some of the pressure on the other batsmen.

I think Rishabh Pant has to come into this side as Dinesh Karthik looks woefully out-of-form. I saw him (Karthik) in the nets in the morning and he couldn't put bat to ball. I think a left-hander in the side will help the team and Pant isn't scarred by India's losses and he is also capable of changing the course of a game."

Virender Sehwag

Very poor from India. While we all want to stand by our team and support them when they don’t do well, going down without a fight is very disappointing to watch. Hope they have the confidence and mental strength to comeback from this.

Bishen Bedi

Dismal Indians at Lord’s..everyone remotely connected w/Indn Crkt knows where the problem lies or stems frm..but will not utter a word fr want of strength of character & courage o conviction..which is even more depressing
