learn from the the application of England captain Alastair Cook in this match. He (Cook) made sure that his side was not low in morale after the nine-wicket drubbing in the first Test. He ensured that there is no panic among his players on spin-friendly conditions after the big loss in first Test," Gavaskar said.
"There were not many performers in England side but Cook and Kevin Pietersen ensured that they hung around, spend time at the middle to take a healthy lead. That was the difference between the two teams," he said.
Gavaskar also slammed the "casual" attitude of the Indian players in the second Test.
"Overall, I think a little bit of complacency had crept in among the players after the Ahmedabad win. This was evident every morning of the second Test.
"Today, the Indian players reached nets just 45 minutes before the start but they should have been at the nets more than one hour ahead of the start. And some players were just strolling as if the match is over and nothing can be done. This casual approach gives out a wrong signal to the opposition team."
