London: Admitting that the Indian side made some under challenging conditions, vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane said that the batting line up exposed the inept technique coupled with fragile temperament.
India crumbled to 107 all out against a top quality England seam attack on a rain-hit second day.
"I don't think you can get any more challenging conditions than this (in Test cricket) especially with Duke ball in these weather conditions. But as a batsman you have to back your ability. It is all about intent out there, of not only scoring runs but also leaving the ball and defending well. As a batsman it is always a challenge to come here and play against this kind of attack," Rahane said.
"You have to accept your mistake. Acceptance is the key, I think, when you play in England. It's not about getting caught behind, even run out, but you have got to accept your mistake and move on. The quicker we learn from our mistakes, the better for us. I am sure everyone will learn from this innings and there is a long way to go in this match as well as the series," he said.
