    I keep hearing people (experts too) say that playing both Finn (if fit) and Monty in the next game would gravely weaken their batting unit. Do they, however, realize how much of a difference this move could make to their bowling. For example, although they'd likely lose 30-40 runs playing the former two, they may manage to restrict India for 100+ fewer runs than with Broad and Bresnan instead. The positive impacts of the bowling performance may even carry into the batting. Hence, the potential gains from bowling clearly outweigh the additional runs that Broad and Bresnan would probably add to the tally. (It's not like they are in a good batting form either tbf)

    If I were in charge, I'd play the 4 best bowlers for the conditions given, and not compromise bowling to strengthen the tail-end batting, especially considering that they are now 1-0 behind and they must take 20 wickets to win.

    Play the best bowlers and play the best batsmen to give yourself the best shot at a competetitive performance, easy. Take out Patel too if he's not a better batting alternative to Morgan and co..
    Agreed, it is exactly what I was saying before the first test.

    His ability to read is just one of the reasons why he's better than Kohli.

    you can read books, drink wine and play super international cricket all at once
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Well done India. The pitch was a slow dry powderflake and had it been Sri Lanka instead of England, it would have been a boring draw. It was a good innings from Cook but overwhelmingly overshadowed by Pujara's classic double ton. What an exciting prospect he is!

    Still stand by that I think Kohli should be captaining India, bit Ganguly like in attitude which is what I think they need.
    India have won 20, lost 10 and drawn 10 out of 40 played under Dhoni’s leadership – success % 50.00. Only Sourav Ganguly (21) has posted more Test victories for India than Dhoni. Add to that two World Cups and the distinction of taking his team to World no.1 in test cricket. All these with a bowler and a half apparently.

    There is no doubt that umpiring was poor in this match. So is he not allowed to complain for that? He didn't even go on a tirade, just expressed his thoughts in precisely one line.
