This was a woeful and totally inept performance by England and demonstrated the extent to which both a lack of confidence and fundamental ability feature high on the list of deficiencies. Whereas England couldn't get anything like enough balls off the square or into the gaps, India manipulated England's toothless attack with a sure touch and growing swagger. It can now be seen just how frail England's performance has been of late and their summer success was every bit as much about the Indian under-performance as it was about a newly discovered dynamism from England. It now seems entirely likely that the touring side will capitulate. Cook is not captain material and gave little direction to the side. Where now, England?

Same old same old!! Perhaps now our friend Flower WILL realise that changes are necessary. Bring in the players on form. The coaching staff need to ensure that fielding IS a sure way of reducing batting totals. England were poor in the field. They have become comp[lacent. It's all very well going public with these crass interviews, but they have to back up words with actions. Dernbach is not Test standard, give Pieterson a rest ands bring in Bell. Even David Lloyd has forecast a 5 - 0 whitewash. He may have something there! Gee

England are taught a cricketing lesson In India after them claiming to be one of the best One Day sides after beating India in England when they won all tosses and rain affecting each and every game to England's favour. This India side is still missing key players in Sehwag , Tendulkar ,Yuvraaj, Zaheer and still inflicts a second heavy defeat to England.

even a 3 year old can see despite a drbbing of india on our patch only 3 months ago,on their own turf theyre difference opposition,theyve got their mojo back and we havent a clue.swann since becoming number 3 in the world rankings has been done for drink driving wrote a book offending team mates and done very little else.dernbach was never a one day bowler,his career record shows,as does his average runs an over column.bopara is neither a top order batsman or a good enough bowler and kieswetter is not a good enough opener,prior and davies are streets ahead and although an explosive hitter bairstows a wicket keepr by trade...bopara should be dropped for butler,and kieswetter for bell who should open for starters.
