Chennai: India have been a far superior side to England in the ongoing five-match Test series but an area where the home team should have done better was close in catching, feels fielding coach R Sridhar.

"I would agree that our catching, especially our close in catching of pacers behind the stumps has not been up to scratch this series. We have set high standards in the last two years but this particular series, things haven't gone our way," said Sridhar after stumps on day one of the final Test.

Sridhar attributed the inconsistency in close cordon catching to constant changes to the eleven due to injuries.
