I hope they qualify for the Test final and come to the UK and get scuttled for 36 again.

This pitch is a bad joke.

Dead right. They received the goodwill of the sporting world for their amazing defeat of the Aussies and then turnout a pitch not even fit for a Sunday League match. If this continues England might as well play Leach and Root as their bowlers backed up by Stokes and eight specialist batsmen. At least then we might get to 150 runs in an innings. Difference between teams was runs hacked off pacemen

Why are you forgetting that it was England who won the toss and they could have easily benefitted from it but they didn't get enough in first innings. The fact is England is now facing a stronger and better Indian team, unlike the first test, where they were facing a team that was physically and mentally exhausted after their heroics in Australia

The ICC and the broadcaster and the public would prefer a longer test. You are turning a blind eye to the world of Johnny Bairstow who can’t play a longer form of cricket.

Speaking of a blind eye, I agree. It was on show aplenty. Seems that was the affliction of the england batsmen.

The ICC have changed the cricket rules to favor England. Witness Root complaining and then the umpire nearly taking "all day" to find an angle to give him not out.

I'm embarrassed they named the stadium after Narendra Modi.
I'm glad they named it after Narendra Modi. The game reflected the person which is abysmal. Speaking as an OCI (Overseas citizen of India), Modi has been a problem, and the Kashmir and new Bill promoting a seemingly anti-Muslim bill (half sikh- half hindu here) reflected the pitch. Abysmal. I'm happy to see India win, I'm aghast it took two days!! Root getting 5 Wickets and Patel gets 11 on debut! Removed

England produces green tops every year, if you didn't Jimmy wouldn't be half the legend he is.

Plain and simple India have been the better team!

Yes the pitch has been poor the last 2 matches but play what you are given! Same all around the world!

Looking forward to a 3-1 win now, happy daze ??

I said this before too.
England are too sentimental.
They need to dump all their 30+ players. Too many miles on their wheels.
Need some fresh approach, thinking, mindset, confidence.
This bunch had their day and it was not a very good day. Give them a watch, pat them on the back, send them home.

If they lose to India like this, they will be destroyed in the Ashes and it will not be pretty.

Poor wicket,
Again the 3rd umpire gets too involved or not. There's incompetent and there's cheating. You decide.

What next, pitches in Australia are too hard and bouncy ? Conditions were the same for both teams, stop whinging and making excuses, all is hunky dory when England win, India woke up in the last two Test matches, after being on a high from their Aussie triumph. Whinging, moaning by Root, Broad and Anderson and cheating by Stokes , firstly claiming a dropped catch, then using Saliva on the ball. Removed

There is a wave of nationalism sweeping India at the moment the new ground named after the prime minister meant they just had to win at all costs ! the new ground could not fail to provide a victory and they got it ! now they can carry on persecuting the Sikh farmers who feed the nation but they are not Hindus are they !

There's a wave of destructive nationalism sweeping far more countries than India: remember 2012 Olympic Stadium & golden Sat 5.08.2012 + Brexit...what's the difference? - not a lot!
India don't allow neutral umpires, they don't apply the DRS correctly (extra angles and time for Indian decisions), they design a pitch that does not even allow for a fair contest. Then the Prime Minister Decides only Hindu players and names the stadium after himself. May as well be North Korea or China. Corrupt. Removed

Proves the old adage “Don't judge the pitch till both sides have batted.” Turns out IND couldn't bat on it either in the 1st innings! It's entertainment, I guess, but I don't think a pitch that produces a 2 day Test is going to be rated very highly be the officials. And it shouldn't be. Outplayed by IND again; no argument; but that wasn't a good advert for Test cricket.

India deserved the win - poor team selection by England, but when a part time spinner like Joe Root get the figures he did you have to seriously question the pitch.. a long way from anything acceptable for test cricket

Worst thing about a pitch that offers that much spin on day one is that spinners can continue bowling over after over without needing to be rested and the pitch will only gradually deteriorate more in their favour.

I don't like flat batting tracks or green tops either, but both of those wicket types degrade over time and eventually bring other facets of the game into play.

A farce and a shame.

Think I'll give the last test a miss because whatever the last two "games" have been they certainly haven't been test cricket. But maybe that is what the Indian authorities want to ensure the demise of test cricket and complete their dominance of the short format.

2 things occurred to me
Firstly, Test cricket should adopt the away team bats first rule and there is only a toss if they don't want to.
Secondly ,when India play in England I want every pitch to be a green top
