    This was probably one of the five most important "individual" test matches India has played in recent times, probably since 2000. Especially when you consider what was on the line pre-match.

    This ranks there with Chennai 2001 (vs. Aust), Sydney 2004, Cape Town 2007 and Cape Town 2011. Maybe Kolkata 2010 vs. SA important as well, as #1 ranking was on the line.

    This is probably the most disappointing performance since Cape Town 2006. And this statement comes after 0-4 0-4

    I think it was 6 months but I can't recall tbh. Something about 6 months or until the next time the team wins a series against the other country.

    GF to confirm no doubt.

    i don't think the performance in this match is the most disappointing given the pitch.
    i actually found the indian perfromance in the last match so so much worse.

    Excellent partnership this morning.

    The runs coming so much more freely has largely come as a result of the field. Dhoni's had at least 2-3 close catchers in instead of saving the one and they've been useless because nothing's carried to them even when it's been edged. The rest of the game has had those catchers in the ring saving one.

    Nah, weak tactics is always worse than just being **** and outplayed.

    They had horrible tactics - including pitch preparation. Had to play another turner.

    This is the whole of Indian cricket I'm talking, not just the XI.

    After the first test, I think I was one of the few who said that England still had a good chance of winning a test match in the series, although i expected india to win the series like everyone else.

    well played cook, KP, prior, monty, swann and anderson.

    Losing a home series is probably the best thing that could happen to Indian cricket. All of the denial, from officials and players, along the lines of 'wait till they come over here', it's impossible after this series. There's nowhere to hide and maybe, just maybe, that will result in at least some of the required actions being taken.

    I would also like to take this opportunity to suggest this has been a much more enjoyable tour thread than a lot I've seen of late. Mainly down to Jono being a gun. The rest of you are still ****s

    I gave England no chance of winning the series. So much egg on face. Sucks hard.

    Will never overestimate Indian cricket again (y).

    in that context, yes i agree.
    at least there's now a strong chance that the non-performers will finally be dropped.

    2-2 would'vd prob saved them.
