Cuttack: Indian skipper Saurav Ganguly on Tuesday said he was disappointed that his team could not successfully chase a total of 250 but vowed to bounce back in the six-match Limited Overs series against England."I think we should have successfully chased 250, but we could not do it. The series is wide open with four more matches to go and we hope to comeback and play well in the remaining matches," Ganguly told reporters after India's 16-run defeat at the hands of England in the second One-dayer.He said the team was comfortably placed at 99 for one at one stage but it kept losing wickets at regular intervals, which put more pressure on the late order batsmen. "We have a rather inexperienced team and we have to keep learning all the time," he said."Also, the three run outs cost us the match, Tendulkar's was a freak dismissal. One can do nothing about it," the skipper said. A jubilant England skipper Nasser Hussain said the youngsters in the team were beginning to deliver goods and the experienced ones like Graham Thorpe and Andrew Caddick would have to really fight their way back into the team. "The younger players are proving their worth and players like Thorpe and Caddick have to fight for their places in the team," he said. PTI
