London : Former Indian cricket captain Ajit Wadekar said that current Indian team lead by Dhoni appeared to suffer from “too much cricket."

“Our chaps looked a bit tired. We shouldn't over-do things - we shouldn't burn these players out," said Wadekar, whose comments reflect those India coach Gary Kirsten made recently.

Indian coach Gary Kirtsten recently blamed the IPL for India's miserable performance in the T20 World Cup.

“In Twenty20 cricket anything can happen — one mistake and there's no chance of recovery," said Wadekar, who captained the team that beat England in 1971 to register India's first overseas Test series win.

“We may not be doing that well just now. But we cannot be doing well all the time. Maybe this defeat is the first step to success and going higher and even getting the best rating in the world,"

Wadekar, who was launching a book at the Nehru Centre here by Indian photographer Shrenik Sett commemorating India's 1983 World Cup win'.
