    While Swann is great and Monty has improved immensely, I think it's just down to the batting strengths of each side.

    England have been the better batting side over the past couple of years, and now that most of their batsmen have finally learned how to play good spin, they were always going to score more runs than India.

    It's fair to say had the India series been before Pakistan/Sri Lanka, we might have been looking at an entirely different picture.

    Our seamers were bowling better back then, mind.

    The bowling itself has been better as well.

    As in England's in comparison to India?

    India did bowl well in the first Test though, 1st innings anyway.

    Using one of our own on us,

    Our son Mudhsuden became Monty,
    Cant a brown have his identity.
    This was always your hypocricy,
    Divide and rule, your policy.

    Now you jump on imported glory,
    That has always been your story.
    Talk when you have 11 Englishmen,
    Or when Monty becomes Mudhsuden.
    Haha that's awesome.

    Shows the value of having a modern liberal democracy tbf.

    Can we borrow Alastair Cook for the Blackcaps?

    Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face

    India v England, 3rd Test, Kolkata, 3rd day : India's year of denial | Cricket Features | India v England | ESPN Cricinfo

    One of these days, India will admit they have become an ordinary side. That currently they are arguably the worst bowling unit in the world, bar Bangladesh. That they are the worst fielding side in the world without any argument, which they kept on proving on the third day as Ishant Sharma dropped his third simple return catch in the fourth match he is playing this year. That the whitewashes in England and Australia didn't happen on doctored green tops. That a proud home record alone doesn't ensure future Test wins. That the ideal response to overseas batting failures is to work on techniques, and not to seek comfort in statistics at home. That no side won an away series with that kind of attitude.
    Gotta say, love Sid Monga's work.

    EDIT: I should have read the last page hey

    What a reply gentleman
    You deserve a standing ovation
    Taking the Englishman out
    Now hear your neighbour shout

    Your country is much bigger than mine
    And only in IPL do your 'Stars' shine
    Or against an Island off your coast
    Whom you are always willing to play host.

    You need turning wickets for your bowlers
    Still all wickets are through howlers
    You still call your spinners seamers,
    What world are you living in you bunch of Dreamers!

    You stop us from playing in IPL on your land
    And still we white-washed England
    Ours were not even turning tracks
    But then we had bowlers, you have Jack!

    O Wait! what am I thinkin
    I forgot all about your great Sachin
    Tell him its time to retire and do coverage
    When age gets close to average

    Moving on to your son of sardar
    What happened to Bhajji yaar?
    Has he been getting a phainty
    Is that what reminded you of Monty

    Does it hurt to see the Monty Dance
    In India he would never get a chance
    England selects Cricketing Stars
    Indian team is full of wannabe "Rockstars"

    BCCI should cancel the 4th test
    no need to show us another English run-fest
    Have mercy on Indian bowlers and the people
    Why not have 5 days of IPL!!!
    Another gem from the PP thread.
