All I have to say is this. People are blaming the batting of the team for the losses but I frankly believe that Indian Bowlers should face just as much criticism for these losses. The Indian Bowlers did not bowl upto their potential especially if their lines are compared to the australian bowlers. Their length and line was just too excellent. Zak, Ash, Ishant and Umesh need to start practicing bowling to a plan just as Australian bowlers did it against Indian batsmen.
