Lolling at Rahul Dravid barely letting Kp speak in the post match show here.
Was this a scoreless draw as I was hoping?

no worries lads we're just building momentum... building momentum.
Indian fans lets not get ahead of ourselves ffs. Only beaten the two minnows so far, so let's just keep a lid on it okay?
lol.. when did England get this dire against spin? I have seen them lose to spin but I have also seen them play pretty darn well against spin for a number of matches/sessions... The way India plays and bowls seam and the way England play spin are frankly ridiculous. They should just allow their A teams play a lot more against each other home and away. The only way talented youngsters on both sides would improve, tbh...
To be fair, at the end of the day it was a dead rubber. Its not a good sign that they were so comically bad, that's for sure. And the fact it is happening in all formats of the game and to all players who put on the England jersey is definitely a worry. But in terms of whether this match will have a huge affect on their chances of winning this tournament chances, I'd say not THAT much.
Irfan's pace picking up a little again? He was up in the higher 130s every now and then last night. Though night cricket always makes everyone seem slightly quicker.
I know this is only T20, but I've been wondering for some time why we don't play to our strengths all the time and in all conditions. Three spinners at home, two abroad - unless it's an outrageously seaming pitch. I get that our spinners aren't exactly hot shots either (away from home anyway), but surely they have more aces up their sleeves than our medium pacers?
Harbhajan actually looked good yesterday; he was getting some loop on the ball, was varying his speed nicely. Bowled a couple of really good doosras also. Then again, he's always looked a different bowler once he has early wickets down. Chawla is just rank though.
I think that's the go in One Day and T20 cricket, where the batsman has to come at the bowler, but away from turning tracks in Test matches, where you can wait on the bowler a bit more, the spinners can look a bit impotent, like Ashwin in Australia.
