India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni admitted his side’s poor batting at times had let them down, but was quick to hail James Anderson.

The Lancashire paceman claimed 12 wickets across the four games and was, by far, the best quick bowler on either side.

“I think we struggled in the batting department but the difference between the two bowling sides was James Anderson,” he said.

“He bowled really well. He was someone who was testing the batsman quite often.”

The lifeless pitch in Nagpur attracted some criticism from all quarters and Dhoni acknowledged it did not suit either side.

“There was not much really for the fast bowlers or the spinners,” he added.

“It was difficult to score runs but if you kept your head down it was difficult to get the batsmen out.”
