After a dismal performance from the much talked about Indian batting line-up at Edgbaston, the visitors will have to pull up their socks at Lord's in the second Test match against England. While there has been talk about changing the line-up and adding more the extra batsman, India's bowling coach Bharat Arun feels that would represent a conservative attitude. Arun also said that it is a good thing for the side that Hardik Pandya does not need to share the burden of taking wickets for the side.
