Show more desire: Bresnan to Team India

Birmingham: England's star all-rounder Tim Bresnan feels India lack the desire to win and need to take their game a few notches higher to put up a fight in the ongoing Test series.

India dropped a number of catches on day two of the third Test here at Edgbaston as the hosts firmed their grip on the match, a victory in which will knock India off and perch England on top of the ICC Test rankings.

"It'd help if India's fielders didn't have their hands in their pockets. It's not that cold," Bresnan told reporters on Wednesday.

Bresnan also went on to reject Inidian coach Duncan Fletcher's observation that the ball had swung prodigiously in the current series.

"The pitch is playing all right. We were expecting it to be quicker and seam more," he said.

The England player felt Indians don't look interested at all and lack the desire to win.

"They need to look interested and show some desire. If you don't want to be here, go home," Bresnan remarked.
