Kolkata: India opener Virender Sehwag today lashed out at the batsmen for showing lack of patience and held them responsible for putting the hosts on the verge of a heavy defeat in the third Test against England here.
If you apply yourself on this wicket, it's not that difficult to score runs. It's Test cricket and you have to show some patience. Yes you can say that (we did not show enough patience). The key was the patience, Sehwag told reporters after the fourth day's play.
The Delhi player believed that things could have been different had India posted a big first-innings total. In this series, we have not put runs on the board, especially in the last two Tests. The moment we put 500-plus, it's going to be a different ballgame.
