LONDON - Geoffrey Boycott feels that India are no longer the force it used to be and touring the country has become much easier now a days. Saying that India are going through a transition phase, Boycott singled out a few Indian stars who are past their prime. "India are not the force they have been in the past. Two great batsmen have retired in VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid while Tendulkar is no longer the great player he once was," he wrote in his column.
