    I agree with you mate, we were poor away last year no doubt about that, you totally deserve the number 1 ranking, England are over hyped we looked closer at the results as you have.

    Ahh, well we all know you people with failing sight need to look closer at all things, so fair play, but just make sure to keep kitchen roll close, or maybe a durable sock

He's lost the right to say anything against anyone after the murray mints fiasco.
    haha wtf are you talking about out. First ECB don't select the Somerset team. Second it was a strong Somerset team. Third I'm sure the BCCI will allow Harbhajan to bowl at our guys in the nets... not. Vaughan is a troll but all the english press get fearful abuse from a lot of indians on twitter and although his trolling is pretty stupid and incendiary it's nothing compared to the abuse he gets

    Lol at Kohli thinking the pitches in England were greentops. Expect Dhoni told him that so he didn't get too depressed

    From what I recall they were fairly sporting, even flat decks for England. Virat's never played on a 'greentop'

    no english fan here is disputing that england are probably going to get thrashed. It's a transistion period for England in a place where they've historically struggled in the conditions. fortunately india are in a similar transistion period and have their own problems- even so they should easily be good enough to beat this England team. If India win the first test the likely scenario is a 4-0 win for india but i am slightly more optimistic about englands fortunes that a few months ago due to the poor form of the indian batsmen. England's problems are as much mental as technical against spin. If somehow England could get a result out of the first match of the series then England would gain immense confidence and the press and fans would get on the back of the indian team and England may be able to take a draw out of the series.

    least england are doing their best to prepare for the tour by getting to india early and playing lots of tour maches. India's tactic of playing one 3 day warmup was testament to their lack of respect for England and test cricket. England most likely due to their frailties against spin will lose the series easily but least they've given the series the respect it deserves and prepared as well as they could. India on the other hand had terrible preparation for England and then seemed to blame the result on the conditions rather than a lack of preparation.

    So what does that say about the India batting line up that got reduced to 140-9 by an average Somerset attack (sorry grecian)?

    It seems in this statement, Kohli has managed to insult both the Indian batsmen who did terribly on a road, and the Indian bowlers who conceded a 700 plus score on a green top. Considering that, I don't see how you can view what he said as a positive thing.

    referring to the quotes from Kohli and his attitude, not the poster's thinly veiled trolling, it's more evidence that the Indian team and management just can't cop a hiding on the chin. India got flogged away twice, it was nobody's fault but the Indian team. Throwing toys out of the cot a year later is not going to bring the dual thrashings back, sorry about that.

    So surely that makes England's thrashing of them a greater achievement than you earlier portrayed it to be?

    And the Indian injury issues are very overplayed IMO. None of the players who were injured that tour have shown me anything since to make me feel that they would have changed the scoreline of the series, and the players who did play some of the series, but missed other parts such as Sehwag, Harbhajan and Gambhir did terribly when they played.

    Also no one ever seems to mention that India's best bowler in the India series missed the Australian one through injury.

    If England actually beat India I'm not sure which I'd enjoy most, England winning or India losing.

    Somewhat unlikely obviously, but you have to dare to dream.

    Look clearly they were those dastardly kind of pitches you see around these days which flattened out when England were batting and unflattened for the Indians.
