Former chief of selection committee Dilip Vengsarkar has lashed out at Test captain Anil Kumble, who was not apparently not fit, for his poor performance and hold him responsible for letting the team down.

Before the match, Kumble was not 100 per cent fit... "unfit Kumble is letting the team down", Vengsarkar said in an interview to a news channel.

"...If Kumble could not bowl more overs then he should have not played, Vengsarkar said and added that the skipper should have earlier come clean to the selectors on his fitness.

Vengsarkar also criticised Kumble for not allowing Virender Sehwag to bowl more overs.
