Lol at all the English crying. Its not a forfeit guys.

Face it, IPL is more important than English test cricket and your own board thinks so. And now all your players are gonna play in the IPL for the merriment of the Indian public.

The Suez canal crisis of cricket where the new big boy shows England their place in the world.

Course it is a forfeit, you chose not to play as the IPL takes priority.

Shameful behaviour from India.

BCCI wanted the test to be played.
Players refused fearing covid and losing IPL income.

You saying its a forfeit doesn't make it a forfeit.

That's like Australia claiming the 2019 Ashes cause Stoke was lbw.

Show me the OFFICIAL scorecard which shows Eng won the 5th test and the series is 2-2. Something by the ICC even.

Something similar to this:

Let me guys gonna give you a preview of what else is gonna happen this decade.

By 2030-35 there will be a 24 team IPL with a 6 months international window. There will be a lot of crying and wailing a s we get to that point but that's what will make it sweeter.

Tbf it would be a forfeit at any other level. In amateur league you might get a sympathetic hearing if a lot of players caught covid. But "we've all tested negative for covid... but some of us have Concerns!" is a forfeit, a fine, and expulsion if it happens more than once.
So you think England should have been fined, with an expulsion warning, for coming home early from South Africa?

Relax man... the others are just ganging up on you as you seem to be emotional about this. They know their place in cricket. :p
