    Wont matter what India do. England are just too good. I guess its somewhat possible Sachin won't do anything dumb and play a really long innings, its not out of the question. I hope England crush them again. Im sure India will destroy them in the one dayers though.

    ^ Agree, expect another innings victory for Eng, should have only been a 3 test series in hindsight & not 4 given it's such a mismatch.

    Not so sure India will win that easily in the ODI's though

    I wonder which is gonna be more humiliating, India losing this 4-0 or when England lost the ashes 5-0.

    Well England lost the Ashes to a brilliant number one side. India will lose to the 2nd ranked side, having not lost a series in years. Much more humiliating for India i'd have thought. But both are pretty humiliating!

    3rd ranked, that is.

    And 5-0 was to one of the finest collection of players ever assembled on a cricket field. As good as England's team is, it isn't that.

    Or anywhere close for what matters.

    I also think the world cup win adds to the humiliation for India. Since so many Indian fans were thinking India will rule over cricket after that.

    Lord's was a quality cricket match tbh. Actually the first 7 days of the series were excellent - not so much for the remainder, though.

    No point risking Trott and Tremlett IMO. Keep us unchanged, give Ravi another go. He wouldn't have been my choice to plat at Edgbaston but I don't think he should be judged on his 7.

    Although I don't see India giving a real fight with this bowling attack
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Meh. Keeping him would just be replicating the (IMHO) original error. What better occasion to blood a new player than in a dead rubber game? Taylor racking up the runs versus SL A and, for the Loins games to have meaning, they should be used a some kinda form guide. If not to have a look at potential test/ODI players, what are they for?

    Expect Trott to come back tho. No jibber.
