Mumbai: While it was the batsmen who failed to put up a decent score in either innings, Selection Committee chairman Chandu Borde chose to attack the bowlers for India's humiliating 10-wicket loss to Sri Lanka in the first Test at Galle on Friday."The bowlers gave away too many runs and did not take advantage of the wicket in the beginning when they should have bowled a better line and length," Borde told PTI over phone from Pune."It was yet another dismal performance (by the Indians)," he said but refused to go into the merits of Saurav Ganguly's leadership. "This is not the time to do that... The captain is equally disappointed."Borde hoped the team will leave the defeat behind and play the next two Tests with a renewed zeal. "Ours is a talented team and all the players need to do is to regroup themselves and play to their potential, putting the past behind them," he said. PTI
