Sunil Gavaskar critical of spinners' performance in Mumbai test
"I know the curator of Eden Gardens personally and he has his own mind. We may see a pitch different from what Dhoni wants," said Gavaskar.
Talking about the home side batsmen, Gavaskar felt that it was an unusual situation to see the Indians struggling against the visiting spinners.
"Indians were supposed to be good players of spin and England batsmen were supposed to struggle against Indian spinners. But now the exact opposite is happening. The Indians are struggling against England spinners while the England batsmen were playing Indian spinners better.
"Indian batsmen should 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
