    *Official* England in India 2023/24 #CryMoreTour

    Whenever you lose a series, it's always natural to look for reasons. Maybe if we'd done that or not done this, the result would have been different. But in this series, the truth is India won because in Indian conditions they are better than us. Going or not going to Abu Dhabi between tests...

    Does anyone wish, odi cricket was back?

    I much prefer 50 over cricket to T20. I don't mind the international T20 so much but even then its only really the World Cup that grabs my attention. I don't watch much domestic T20 stuff and I hate the franchiae nature of it, particularly the IPL as it interferes with proper cricket...

    There's just something about Robinson, he always looks like he needs a rocket up his backside to galvanise him into action. He's a really talented bowler and we need him more than ever with Broad retiring but whatever the issues with him are, he needs to sort them out.

    We all know that the WTC Final should be at Lords for the following reasons. 1. It's the Home of cricket and a good crowd is guaranteed whoever is playing. 2. Logistically it makes sense as all teams are free to play during the English summer. You have to plan these events in advance without...

    *Official* England in India 2023/24 #CryMoreTour

    India as you would expect in Indian conditions were the better team - fair play to them. But before some of the Indian supporters on here self combust with happiness at beating us, the real test for any team comes away from home and as we know India's record in England is not so good. In...

    *Official* England in India 2023/24 #CryMoreTour

    The truth is in the last 20 years or so, Australia have underperformed in both England and India. No series win in India since 2004. No series win in England since 2001. We've won series in both India and Australia during that period so we won't be taking any lessons from the Aussies about not...

    Dhruv Jurel

    Jurel was excellent in this test but assuming Pant comes back at his former level, then he will take the gloves back. Would Jurel warrant a spot purely on his batting - not for me.

    And yet but for the rain at Manchester, we would have been Australia 3-2. Remind me again the last time Australia won a series in India or England.🤔

    Fair play to India - great partnership from Gill and Jural under alot of pressure. We bowled really well, Bashir and Hartley bowled well but in the end the damage done yesterday was telling.

    *Official* England in India 2023/24 #CryMoreTour

    Obviously a really disappointing day for us but fair play to India, they fought back really well. The innings from Jurel was massive. Even though we still had a 1st innings lead, you felt the momentum was with India. I don't think we did too much wrong with the bat, Kuldeep bowled brilliantly...

    Obviously India are favourites now but the fat lady isn't clearing her throat just yet.

    Really tough for the tail coming in when the ball is doing all sorts.

    I know it's been said before but what a selection Bash has been - plucked from absolutely nowhere. Brilliant from Stokes

    Would England have won the 2005 Ashes without ball tampering?

    It's not a pitch you want to be using the sweep due to the variable bounce. Root only swept when the ball wasn't straight.

    What a strange old day of cricket - utterly absorbing. I'm not sure which side has had the better day. The pitch did alot early on, the ball to Stokes was ridiculous. As the day went on, and the ball got softer, it was easier but still not easy to bat on. It may be a pitch where the new...
