As India lost second Test at Lord's against England by an innings and 159 runs, batting has emerged as the weakest link. Every Indian batsman has struggled except for skipper Virat Kohli who scored a ton in the first Test at Edgbaston. The primary reason for the batting failure could be attributed to not playing enough practice games to acclimatize to the conditions. Cricket expert Ayaz Memon, Rohan Gavaskar and Network 18's Group Editor (Sports) Gaurav Kalra discuss how Team India should put in more thought towards playing first class matches against quality opposition to prepare for tough away tours.
