Edgbaston:

India may have lost the number 1 spot in the Test rankings but skipper MS Dhoni feels rankings are meant to change.

Speaking at the post-match press conference, Dhoni said he realised that the loss at Edgbaston would leave fans disappointed but said a team cannot be expected to win every time. "I am not worried about losing number. Fans maybe disappointed but remember, it is not a spot you own," he said.

Dhoni, who remained unbeaten in the second innings, said that the he would expect the team to motivate itself before the final Test at Oval. He, however, added that questions could not be raised about the ability of coach Duncan Fletcher. "Duncan has done well in whatever little time he has spent with us. He did his best to prepare us. Just that the opposition played better than us."
