    Haven't read this thread for day 2 yet, and I'm sure there is some complaining about India's bowling in this thread, and fair enough they weren't fantastic, but when India lose this match it will be down to their batsmen. Scoring just over 300 on that wicket is disappointing to say the least.

    England bowled brilliantly though, and as a rule, if you drop Cook you're ****ed. That has proven to be the case.

    Lets be honest, India are akin to a more talented West Indies.

    They are gutless. They lack patience. They don't fancy a fight. They are unfit. They can't play cricket unless it is in conditions that suit them. They are, in short, a shambles.

    However, at home they are damn good. Dress it up however people like but they have lost at home twice in 25 years. They weren't that great prior to SRT, VVS, Dravid, Kumble etc....they still barely lost. Winning in India is a huge achievement, look at the 1st Test.

    The issue is that India is a massive cricketing nation that right now has no interest in playing the most testing format. They are far happier labelling some guy a superstar because he can hit 70 off 30 balls against Pune, despite the fact barely any of their cricketers are capable of seeing a seamer off on a greentop.

    Indian cricket requires a massive slap in the face and quick.

    Such **** posting, what does that even mean? You think they'd have prepared a green top?

    Dhoni has been asking for turners. Got a slow pitch in the first test (not what he wanted, they won), and got a turner in the second test (what he wanted, they lost).

    This pitch is neither. Your post makes no sense on like 5 levels.

    The difference in class is so obvious it is sad watching this game. The last year and half have been thoroughly depressing as an Indian fan.

    Expected India to compete well in England. Probably even win it. We were thrashed so bad. Expected that to be a lesson against poor preparation for such a huge series and thought we would do decently in Australia considering they were supposed to be in "decline". Thrashed once more.

    Gave up on performing well outside the subcontinent for some time at least but thought we would do well in India and England have disabused that hope too.

    Watching the Indian team struggle against Anderson, I had high hopes on Zaheer and even Ishant looked good against Cook initially. This is probably the most depressing loss at home since the 2-0 against SA in 2000.

    Pretty much this, should we lose this series I think it will be the worst of them all, even worse than losing 8-0 overseas, losing at home will be hard to digest if it happens.

    Also Amit Mishra is TRASH, I don't ever want to see him in test matches again, guy bowls an insane amount of no-balls.

    Can we honestly try Jadeja? His bowling style is perfect for pitches like the last one, and his batting would be handy too. Jadeja can't possibly do any worse than Yuvraj batting wise, and he'll bowl a lot more than Yuvi too.

    So being the fielding coach, and given all the limitations of looking after arguably the worst fielding side in Test cricket, did Penney try to tell Dhoni to get the placements right? Penney's response stopped short of stating helplessness. "It's difficult sometimes with bowlers," he said. "Some of our fielders can't field everywhere. So they have got to go into positions like that. It's a pretty difficult situation sometimes…

    "Sometimes in Test cricket you get to a position where people you'd rather have at, say, point but you have them catching because some of the bowlers might be tiring."
