Team India started their bowling attack in order to break the growing partnership of Smith and Maxwell but Umesh Yadav, who bowled the first over of day 2, ended up breaking Maxwell's bat at the very first ball.

When that happens it's so complicated. "I expect a reaction from the team", Sagna said. Hopefully we will learn. Again you have to try to defend better, but I think in about 12-15 minutes of the second half in our game in Monaco we created five chances and few teams in Europe can do that.
