New Delhi: Former captain Sourav Ganguly has slammed the Indian team management for not "looking after" two of its best batsmen, K L Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane, saying constant experimentation in the middle-order is hurting the "top-heavy" side.

Ganguly, speaking after India's loss in the three-match series against England at Leeds on last day, said “India is over reliant on the top-three of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. India is too top heavy at the moment. If your top-order doesn't get runs, then you are struggling. It is a big issue. You have to have quality like England have," said Ganguly in his post-match analysis on the official broadcaster.

Ganguly said India is not giving enough chances to someone like Rahul, who was dropped for last day’s match despite being in decent form. "In South Africa, India did well because Kohli got three hundreds. If he doesn't get a hundred, you will have issues."
