***Official*** England in India 2016/17

Yeah decent chance of that happening. Saha is still the better keeper imo. Parthiv will maybe spill one extra chance per game but he may make up for it with his batting.. Worth remembering though that while he looks good while batting, he is never likely to score more than 40 or 50.

If that's the case, he's probably not worth the extra 10 runs he'd likely average more than Saha with the bat, given Saha's no mug with the bat himself.

He was a lot better this test though. Sometimes doesn't pick Ashwin. Which was always going to take time tbf given he's got 5 variations now.

Well done India !

Absolute sour grapes from Anderson.

There's not much change in Kohli ? really ?

One thing to say Kohli will tested more in England , another to say " Kohli is not so much an improved batsman "

the butthurt is real with this guy

The irony of that comment from Anderson is that, you replace Kohli with Anderson and it would still be true.

Virat Kohli (c)
You can argue that he shouldn't have said it at this time, and that's fair. But I'm not sure that he's wrong.
Well considering the criticism of Kohli before this series is his record on slow Indian tracks, pretty sure you can say he's wrong.

Kohli likes pace in the wickets. if Anderson said swinging conditions then he'd be right.

The bloke has 9 tons outside of India.

Thing is it is absolutely irrelevant because we are playing in India. Plus nobody knows whether he has fixed his problems.

This weak performance today isn't that surprising considering Jimmy's comments overnight, which was an insight into where their heads were at. The team is mentally shot. Its a long tour and unfortunately for them they missed their chances in the first few tests.

Its like India in Eng in 2014. As the tour went on they got worse.
Atleast we managed to win a test.

That too in glorious fashion with Anderson getting out to a ***** runout to Jadeja.
