India skipper Anil Kumble said he was looking forward to an improved performance from his fielders in the third and final Test against Pakistan.
"Overall, catching is something we need to improve upon," he said after his side settled for a draw in the second Test here Tuesday.
India lead 1-0 in the three-Test series following their six-wicket victory in the opening match in New Delhi. The third match starts in Bangalore on Sunday.
"We had our chances in the first innings here that we probably should have taken. On these kinds of surfaces, where you know it's tough to get wickets, even half-chances matter," said Kumble.
"We needed more time, but that's the best time I could manage after they avoided a follow-on. It'd have been good to enforce the follow-on, but with that not happening I thought the best thing was to give ourselves 80 overs."
Pakistan finished at 214-4 in their second innings chasing a 345-run target off 81 overs.
Middle-order batsman Misbah-ul-Haq (161 not out) and wicket-keeper Kamran Akmal (119) played key roles in helping Pakistan avert the follow-on, hammering centuries under pressure on Sunday.
"Misbah has been really good and shown a lot of character in the four innings he played against us. We gave him a couple of chances early on and that's something we'll have to watch out for," said Kumble.
"He looked pretty calm and batted really well. He has a lot of time to play spinners. We'd have liked to make it 2-0 here, but you have to give credit to Pakistan for the way they batted, especially Misbah and Akmal."
The India captain said it was not easy getting wickets on a slow turning track at Eden Gardens after his bowlers could manage just four on the fifth and final day.
"It was tough to bowl on this pitch. It got slower and slower and even when it spun, it spun very slowly. Considering the pitch and the conditions, I thought our bowlers put in a fantastic effort," said Kumble.
"It's been really tiring for the bowlers to try and ensure that 20 wickets are taken. We did really well to get at least 14."
Kumble also said opener Dinesh Karthik's form was not a worry, despite the batsman's contributing 39 runs in four innings.
"It's not a concern. It happens to the best of players. Knowing Dinesh, he's a fantastic trier and does all the right things at practice, I'm sure he'll come good," said Kumble.
