    Agree completely with that last line. The rest is part conjecture part wishful thinking I am afraid . . .

    Yeah I agree. No point with the ifs and buts, but I don't think the bowlers should be hung out to dry like they have been over the last few years. Batting has been awful in the last 2 tests.

    In the five day game batsmen and bowlers both count. England's bowlers won the game as bowlers do and Indiam batsmen lost it as only batsmen can . . .

    This test was an allround effort from England, everyone chipped in. Great performance from them.

    Congrats to all CW English fans, a well deserved win by England.

    Feel bad for all the CW Indian fans, and as Smali mentioned there are some terrific blokes on here. Best of luck in the last game.

    i didn't know criticizing your team for their inept batting fell under the category of being a whinging bitch

    if it does then calling others whinging bitches for doing so is whinging itself, isn't it? (complaining about others complaining)

    Sorry mate you misunderstood. I was only referring to the futility of the if-but line of thought . . .

    Ashwin robbed of a century is crushing.

    What the selectors will probably pick -

    Gambhir
    Sehwag
    Pujara
    Tendulkar
    Kohli
    Rahane
    Dhoni
    Ashwin
    Zaheer
    Ojha

    2nd Seamer - If they do decide to drop Ishant, then I guess they'll pick Dinda who's been in the squad for the first three games, unless Yadav is fit.

    I'd go for a similar side, except my 2nd seamer would probably be (if fit) Yadav, Praveen, Pankaj in that order. Would love to drop Dhoni for Saha or Kaul, but I don't want another captain to be a scapegoat for his failings.

    It's time for team India to take some responsibility and become accountable.

    Oh dear. We might actually end up with a weaker attack than the third test then, with Dinda possibly coming in.
