Being an utilized surface didn’t help with the new ball,” Finch said. He also praised Indian batting. “But we could have been bit more back of a length, but India bat very deep. They just outplayed us.”

We will be in a better place to make the decision in Taunton. There are 10 ways to get out and run out was one of them. They bowled very well to Warner and he need some more time. He’s a world-class player and will get us to a flier,” the skipper said.
