After the first test England players, pundits and fans were crowing like the series was in the bag. Talk about premature. Typical Englishness.

Australia faced defeat after more than 35 years in Brisbane. India defeated them. Yes, pitch may be bad, but India did not win but it's England who lost. You guys do have a quality team for and against spin, period.
Guys this is a pattern of England for so many decades (not limited to cricket), not accepting new realities and finding excuses.Soon cricket will also vanish like another glory. wakeup

Has the BBC employed the guy that worked for British Rail years ago? Leaves in the line and the wrong type of snow! You got beat, India played on the same pitch, yep it was poor but they, like it or not, have better spinners and batsmen. They played the game better regardless. Poor losers always needing an excuse.

It’s never good to talk about yourself like that... time for your medication.....
Easy selection for England in the next test - 9 batsmen + Bess and Leach! Won't make a difference to the inevitable result but it sends a message to India that even having one of the best seam attacks in the world, they won't be needed. I'm afraid what India is doing is bordering on match-fixing, which is a real shame because it could have been a really exciting series otherwise. Removed

The pitch in the last match was a big spinner but I don’t have a problem with that. It hugely favoured India as they are better an bowling spin and batting against it. That is home advantage and acceptable to use to win.
This pitch however was not a test wicket, India won by changing the rules and that is basically cheating.
It is shameful behaviour and they should apologise for it.

India are the best , almost unbeatable at home.

England's rotation came a cropper when it hit the pandemic restrictions. (Woakes the latest sent home, having been held hostage all this time.)

England's lack of respect for India with their selection merry-go-round means they deserve to lose.

India stop at nothing to win. A good thing their batsmen are not as one-eyed as some on here.

Say what you like about double standards, English conditions, etc. It simply makes no sense to build a fantastic stadium around a pitch that can't produce a test match that goes into the 3rd day.
Commentators stressed that the wickets were taken on balls that didn't spin, but of course the deliveries that did spin made playing those balls tricky and produced the error.

Have you checked all 630 balls of the CWC final with the same scrutiny to check for errors that might gone England’s way. Have you checked for short runs that might have enhanced NZ score. Have you factored the luck of the toss which benefitted NZ to an estimated 30 runs. When you have you can make idiotic comments like this.

A test match that last less than two days with neither side scoring 150 in any innings clearly points to a sub-standard pitch with part time bowler Root taking 5 for 8 best summing it up. I get it that the home team will always prepare a wicket to suit their strengths but this is ridiculous. It's not in the interests of cricket and the paying public have been massively short changed.

Those moaning about the pitch, are judging it on the end result whilst dismissing every element that occurred during the Test which led to the result. Regardless of who you support that’s nonsense.
If it ended after 2 days so be it, England should try to raise thier game.
As to it tuning fans off I think the 4K+ comments on HYS show you the rest of the series will have a lot of interest.

Let's not forget that pitches in India ALWAYS spin, yet going into this match England only chose a single spinner. But then again, apparently that's only "slightly misreading" the pitch.
I wonder what Bess is thinking at the moment.

A shame they couldn't persuade Moeen to stay. But, I don't blame him. Getting Covid, being the leading run and wicket taker Inna test, and then facing questions about your place in the team, well, you would eat to head home.

I think india at fault for not making sure the air temperature was around 15 degrees, ball not seaming like at Leads. It's the beauty of test cricket to play on such challenging pitches. I hope next time india or pakistan tour England they will make turning pitches to make it even contest. It's great indian team

A Root fanboy here thinks England went with 2 spinners

They went into the match with 1 frontline spinner and 2 frontline seam

Root and Stokes were back up

Questions?

If Root thought the pitch would suit his limited spin, why pick 3 frontline seamers?

If Moeen had been available, would they have picked both him and Leach?
- I think so.

The pitch wasn’t bad, the batsmen were and you forget, Root misread it. I’m not sure what he was looking at during the practice and net sessions in the stadium, clearly a visit to spec savers is in order.

As for the ICC if they look at the Indian pitches every English pitch will also be examined and reviewed, so be careful of what you wish for... it may end up costing you your home advantage!

Wonderful having so many comments from the Indian fans over the past 3 Test matches.

I have counted 8000 comment all told.

Test 3 - 4000 comments
Test 2 - 4000 comments
Test 1 - Not a single comment.

Just saying.
A. get a life
B. We don’t whine when we lose
C. English fans start crying about everything

I am the Oracle, the leading Cricket Authority in Scandinavia.

What I say generally goes, like this opening comment for example.

It's not important though mate. It is just the way it went.

You boys love the word cry on your keyboards don't you? That is infact the 7955th time I have read that word amongst the 8000, so far.
Remember, don't disappear so quickly each time you lose - i.e 4:1

I would say you are a bigot who is clearly bothered by Indians. Maybe you see them do so well in all walks of live and you sit in your mum’s basement - unemployed and dipping into her pension Removed

If your post gets removed you know you were on the wrong side.

Good to remove such post than ruin this site with progressively insulting posts that you are making and others are getting sucked into.

BBC allowing your clearly racist comments is an eyesore.

i see many indian fans like the word disgraceful, let me define that word for you 1 kholi not walking in 2nd test 2 indian groundsman in test 2-3 3 the behavour of your fans on this forum 4 the third umpiring in all games has been at best incopitent and at worse cheating
In 2011 did you see the clean catch that the 3rd umpire disallowed which allowed KP to make a century in Lords and change the match. Even Botham and Holding could not believe it. Calm Down Racist Removed

mate, you should really use the 'auto spelling check inbuilt here.. lol at 'behavour' & 'incopitent'. Answer to your points 1) Kohli not walking immediately was a reaction in disbelief ... it was that good a ball Mo bowled. 2) Groundsman made the pitch to assist spin and take out the lottery of the TOSS. 3) That's the only way u understand 4) 3rd umpires were inexperienced - COVID times.
Whoever "redbid" is, is purposefully misspelling and writing substandard English. It's to avoid getting his/her comments auto-removed. That's how so many of his/her ugly-racist comments stay in plain sight. Removed
i think all the indians have gone now to support man utd against chelsea lol lol Removed

True. I'm ban accountant in London. All my British-Asian colleagues either follow Liverpool or Man United.
Every home team tries to create the best conditions for winning. India create spin wickets and England resort to racist and physical bullying (Anderson Jadeja incident in 2014). Don’t know what this latest fuss is all about. Removed

Did the batsmen sink and suffocate to death as they ran between the wickets?
