Following a bad show by the illustrious Indian batting lineup on the first day of the third Test match played at Edgbaston, Indian coach Duncan Fletcher admitted to the fact that the team is struggling to handle the swinging and seaming conditions of England. India were bowled out for 224 on the first day of the third test after losing the toss, before England's openers cruised to 84 without loss at stumps. Apart from Dravid, who scored hundreds in the first two tests, the other batsmen have struggled, including world record holder Tendulkar and fellow veteran VVS Laxman. However, Fletcher further pinned hope on the Indian batsmen to shine in the remaining part of the match.
