Anybody watch the second one-dayer. What the hell were India up to in their innings ?

 

Dhoni refusing to run and seemingly making no real effort to chase a win , while the rest of them were all pissing themselves on the balcony.

 

Makes me wonder what odds were England to win by a distance before the Indian innings.

Genuinely looking forward to this England v India series. England are generally pretty strong at home, though India have brought their best team to prosper in these relatively foreign conditions for many a year. A nice subplot is Kohli having proved himself in all parts of the world across all formats...except this one, in this country. 

 

It starts at the relatively Aussie-friendly time of 8pm too, which is about the time my boys are all in bed. Get in!

Think 'woeful' is a bit harsh Captain .

 

They were rubbish last winter obviously, but on home soil a team with Cook, Root, Bairstow, Buttler, Stokes, Anderson & Broad can always be a handful if they 'click'. Obviously problems at the top of the order & with the back-up bowling to be solved.

 

India 21/10 to win the first test & Kohli 11/4 to be top scorer in the Indian first innings if you fancy them odds.

Not having it, Rog. We’re fucking shite.

 

Wouldn’t be surprised to see us get completely embarrassed and wholesale changes will need to be rushed in before the Ashes. I’d love to be wrong like but I just don’t see it.

 

Then again, I don’t know a great deal about the current Indian test team other than that they’re number one in the rankings.

Rashid picked as only spinner.

 

That's a rather large gamble, isn't it? Granted Root can roll the arm over, but still...

Another series, another completely self-inflicted batting collapse, and all around get to carry on riding the gravy train.
