After losing the first two one-dayers at Mysore (by 14 runs) and Mandya (by three wickets) in Karnataka, it is high time the hosts wake up before the visitors take an unbeatable lead in the seven-match series.
The Indian team's batting and bowling has been found wanting and their fielding was below par in the first two internationals. In order to reduce the 2-0 lead, the Indianeves will have to improve in all departments of the game.
