    yeah huge surprise. Thought they had stopped giving it to a bowler altogether if a batsman tonned up...

    Congratulations England. Their best series win of the last few years particularly considering they won from behind and India losing at home has been an extremely rare event.

    India, well, let's hope this is the last straw.

    Yep. People who didn't watch the game will look at this scorecard and think that giving the award to a bowler who took four wickets in a draw was weird, but it was his great spell more than anything that really took India out of the game. England's second innings could've been completely different with some scoreboard pressure, not to mention the better rate India could've made those runs at if Anderson didn't dismiss Sehwag for a duck.

    So what will the batting line up look like for the first test against New Zealand? I'd assume Root and Compton have secured places, but where will they bat?

    i don't see why you would move either, yet. compton did what he had to do. root did what he had to do.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Compton has secured a place?

    I don't think he is test class tbh, and don't think Root is ready. Both will get found out pretty quick

    I think it would make sense for Root to swap places with Bell actually. Two boneheaded dismissals in succession from KP and Bell is too likely if you bat them at 4 and 5. Root I think would bat better in combination with KP and it gives a better balance to the lineup. Bell is better at batting with the tail than Root (not saying much) and for that to become an issue again would be a good problem to have, considering his efforts this year.

    If Bell flops again Bairstow is a straight swap at 6. The part-time option of Root is a bonus.

    He hasn't been amazing, but considering the performances of England's batsmen this year, particularly in Asia, he did OK. Certainly worth preserving with, and I wouldn't say he's not test class, since he made starts in nearly every game. He's supposedly a much better player of seam than spin as well, or at least has much more scoring shots and options.

    Have to see what they want for the ashes really, do they want Compton or Root to open? Whichever one they want now should open in New Zealand to give them a few games at it first. Compton can then move to 6 or Root stay there but both would know Bairstow is waiting for a place in the side. The good news is Bopara seems a million miles away from the side now thank god.

    I agree he's done alright, but from what I know of both batsmen they will fail in the next few tests. Thats my prediction. Root is a good long-term option though.

    Main issue is that they are both too defensive, England need at least one more attacking batsman to replace either one.
