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)

Batting and bowling...

What the selectors will probably pick -
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.

Cricinfo says Yadav out of Nagpur test.
It's time for team India to take some responsibility and become accountable.
