Whoever you are, at any level of the game, there's some schadenfreude to be had watching a shouty critical captain in charge dropping the other team's best batsman on 70 odd.

I like Kohli but I'm not sure about missing the first over. I don't think he was injured as they said he was standing next to the dugout. At school level a captain would have got a rollocking for being disrespectful to the other team and your own team, and I think I probably agree with that.

Game was over. Kohli was class when all around him were mediocre. Not sure where your its schadenfreude more than just pettiness.

Well done Buttler, quite amusing after the Sky pundits going on about it being his wrong position.

Strong performance with the ball put England ahead in the game. From 24/3 in the powerplay to 156/20 in 20 overs showed India's class though, primarily Kohli. Where are the ducks that were going quack quack quack after two uncharacteristic duck by Kohli. They should know form is temporary, class is permanent.
This result leaves India to search for answers against fast deliveries close to the body.

Today’s pitch offered pace and bounce and a little bit of spin. I seriously don’t understand what do you lot want. If you want a pitch where you can score 400+ in ODIs and 200+ in t20s regularly then you have to play at home in England. I like to watch a balanced contest not a belter of a wicket that you use in odis and t20 at home

Fun series this, but a formula is emerging. Whoever loses the toss bats. Up first must have 50 on the board coming out of the Powerplay to set a target of at least 180. Don't do that; won't win there batting first.

I’m amazed the third umpire awarded the run out. He was only a yard out and there was still one stump standing.

So no, nothing to complain about. The complaint was about the standard of a test pitch. Entirely irrelevant here.

Strange. T20= England barely any 'rotation' and they win. Test matches = all rotated and no consistent line up, they get battered. I wonder where the ECB priorities lay?

Well done to the team, Buttler as ever proving why he should be top order. May fail now and then but when he gets going he basically wins the game himself.

A bowler would bowl 20 overs across 5 T20 matches when they may bowl 20 or more in a day in a test. I don’t think for a minute that the test team was managed well or done right but there are at least legitimate reasons to rest players in tests more than a T20 series

Total bull... Bairstow, Buttler, stokes and Archer are the only players in that team who are in the test squad and Bairstow doesn't even have a contract for it... so it's pointless comparing the two. Also why rotate for 5 games over a 10 day period?
Either support the team or crawl back under your rock

you are just emphasising the point. If games in India are decided by the toss, what is the point of playing a world cup there? they could all stay at home and just toss a coin to see who goes through and eventually wins. " evenly matched sides thrashing each other if they are chasing.

JB is some player! Great catch, run out and a match winning innings. Loved seeing Wood and Archer With the former clicking 96mph!! Great kohli innings saved India but alas the toss yet again gives too much of an advantage. I would like to England change it up if they win the next toss and bat first. If it goes wrong we still have a Decider

This result leaves India to search for answers against fast deliveries close to the body, and to tighten up their level in the field. They can't win if they drop catches like those.

World's most overrated spinner that English fans claim to be better than Rashid Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal went wicketless yet again on a track offering assistance to spinners as shown by wickets taken by Indian spinners.

With Bumrah replacing Thakur and Jadeja replacing Chahal this would be a pretty strong Indian team. But batting second is always a disadvantage because of the dew unless you put a mammoth total like 200.
