Re: English cricket hits rock bottom again !

If England do manage to scrape a win here it would be totally unjustified even allowing for Sam Currans heroics.

Very poor batting in both innings and woeful catching in India’s first innings. Given home advantage and how India where so undercooked, a dismal display overall.

If we win this from the position we were in Mr K might have produced his one and only miracle.

Re: English cricket hits rock bottom again !

Well if Stokes gets sent down and Anderson and Broad break down under the load England could struggle to win this series, five tests in six weeks, madness.

A win is a win I suppose but this one leaves a lot to be desired.

Yes that was a lot to be desired Jim that is for sure but to win when the team struggles is a nice Brucie bonus no one expected.

Re: English cricket hits rock bottom again !

Stokes did seem very motivated this match for some reason. !

Great Test Match,. beats T20 anyday. Low scores always make a good game.

Re: English cricket hits rock bottom again !

An easy win in the end against a thoroughly dispirited Indian side. Badly prepared and even though England got out of jail in the first match and by winning the toss here they had by far the best of both bowling and batting conditions the old adage is true. ‘Fail to prepare, prepare to fail ‘.

Strange after part of the first test England were being pilloried from pillar to post Jim and now its India that are getting all the brickbats now..

Re: English cricket hits rock bottom again !

England’s top order batting deserves to be pilloried, the lower order and the bowlers got them out of jail in both games.

OT, Lancashire thrash table toppers Durham to qualify for the T20 quarterfinals.

Yes there are certainly still ongoing problems with the top order that is for sure.

Surprising given the video footage, but the jury knows best. Hope he's learnt a lesson even if he isn't 'criminally' guilty.

In a court of law one has to prove beyond any reasonable doubt that the defendant is guilty Mr K.
