The English team were using an approach, where they would be able to disturb the Indian batsmen, when they were playing well. This approach was primarily used by the English bowlers when they were on the field. It seems that the English players wanted to play into the minds of the young Indian batsmen, especially some of those batsmen who lacked experience at the international level. To some extent, they were successful.
Indian players such as Suresh Raina and Virat Kohli had enough experience in their kitty, when players like T. Bresnan, G. Swann were saying something to the batsmen. They responded back with boundaries to the fence and some mouthful to silence them.
At an age where the sport in itself is aggressive by nature, it is understandable to see some players getting into the batsmen’s head and trying to scalp their wicket. But it is very essential not to get over excited and cross the line.
