Like Botham (?) said, "It wasn't a bad decision to bowl first. The bowlers just let him down."
And I tend to agree. Although, I do think India could have done better batting first (like they always do), I also think it was a rather unimpressive bowling show from the Indians, so first or second, there's no excuse for that kind of bowling except unprecedented amounts of pressure and some excellent batting.
So there, I do wish they had batted first, but oh well...It's over...
