Sure, but that's a two-way street. That optimism will be very misplaced if India lose those next three matches. Keep in mind that any of Broad, Bairstow and Crawley will improve this England side. Ben Foakes has a century on the sub-continent and is a better keeper than Buttler. Even Moeen Ali with his 180 test wickets might improve the spin options.

India need this XI to improve, England don't.
How about that for colonial oppression. Removed

Indeed... another opportunity for a great English victory.
Sat up in bed with the iPad I woke the wife up half way through Jimmy’s spell.

I didn’t want her to miss it!

She said I’ll be hearing from her lawyer ?????

Roll on the next test

I bet she was bowled over when you woke your missus up. After England had won , were you so elated that you gave her a bouncer ?

BBC cricket social is an embarrassment.
The BBC is an embarrassment, full stop. Far more concerned with woke issues than satisfying its captive paying audience. Removed

Ignoring the fact that the boss of the BBC is now a right wing Tory Brexiteer (just to address your "identity") - BBC isn't funded to afford sports rights any more & the income it has is under threat. If C4 outbid Sky (which it did) how would the BBC beat that sort of money? C4 covers the cost by upping advertising rates - BBC is on a fixed income. Easy to criticise but no sensible alternatives?

Agree with you about the woke. But TMS is still the finest cricket commentary in the world! In fact I'd even start paying the telly tax again if it meant saving TMS!
Any word from Mr Warne this morning......? Removed

And where was the BBC capturing a great British sporting moment that everyone forced to pay for it can share. Nowhere. Absolutely nowhere. All they are interested in is woke issues and woke sport, despite their minority appeal, whilst trousering £3.5bn from the rest of us. Removed

I get the feeling the some England fans that 'like' cricket don't actually like the game because let's face it, it is god-awful and one of the most boring games ever invented. They like cricket because it is one of the last remaining games England has a chance of winning the odd time.

Can anyone explain how England need to win 3-1, 3-0 or 4-0 to play in final with Eng top of table already ?

Isn't it fantastic that cricket fans could watch this victory on terrestrial tv without having to fork out £35 a month on a Skysports subscription.Well done Channel 4. Removed
Defund the BBC, its rubbish. Its doesnt cater for me. The Telegraph/Times/Mail/Express/Sun/Facebook told me so, so must be true! They wouldnt campaign against it otherwise, what have they to gain? Well done Root & England, BBC for the Social and Channel 4 for coverage. A bright moment in a bleak midwinter. Removed
We are all talking about Anderson the Bully? Him and his mates Broad and Prior. Big boys eh? Or is it acceptable when they're winning? Removed
Read that in the Sun did you? Or just worked it out from the pictures?
Things move on, so have England.
Best of luck when the schools re-open. Year 7 can be tough.

I still would've enforced the follow on. One of the reasons being, if they set us a target after following on, that means we would've been batting last and our bowlers will have been rested. Now because we bowled last, as the next test is on Saturday, if we lose the toss and end up bowling first, it's not a long turnaround for these bowlers and fatigue may play a part.

Tactics yesterday spot on. Easy for Warne and others to criticise by he played in the greatest team ever. Our spin bowling is inconsistent and so batting on was the right call. Giving his bowlers 100 overs to bowl India out was the right call. Commentators still querying the decision which is disappointing as Root has been proven to be right. I still make India favourites to win the series.

Yes, please do not state the obvious, nothing wrong with enjoying the win during the day it happened. Only a few people on here saying the series is all over now. Those who know the game, will know will know how quickly things can change.
