It's pretty clear that they thought they could just run over England with rank turners. Even when they got thrashed in Australia, I remember Gambhir said something along the lines of, "let them come to India and play on raging turners" and Sehwag saying "we beat Australia 2-0 at home"After 8 straight losses they still didn't get it. They were still in denial.The problem is not in the pitches, it's the players that are effing up. India has gone to places such as England and Australia before and performed well. So conditions should not be the excuse. They should take a hard look at themselves and start realizing that they have work to do. Stop making lame excuses and get to work!
