It takes dignity and courage to accept one's own mistake ... Manjrekar, Shastri and Gavaskar don't have it ... India were outplayed in every department ... planning and preparation is part of the game ... the lack of which makes India the most undeserving #1 team ... True champions like Australia and West indies were capable of beating teams without key players ... India will never be true champions until they develop a threatening bowling attack instead of finding excuses like "jealousy" "under preparation" and "injuries"
