Melbourne, Nov 9 (UNI) Former Australian opener Mark Waugh has accused India of adopting defensive tactics in the ongoing fourth Test against the World Champions and said the home team made the game too boring and ridiculous.

''It was a dreadful session of Test match cricket. Ridiculous.

Not good enough. Pretty boring to watch,'' said Waugh, who is commentating for 'Fox Sports' in the four-match series.

Australia, which is trailing 0-1 in the series, could fetch just 166 runs on the third day of the Nagpur Test with the Indians more keen to bowl outside the off-stump constantly.

He further added that India did not want to win the match and the message was clear that they would settle for a draw and take the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

''As far as I can see, India aren't trying to win this game,'' Waugh said.
