Superb India beat England to win series
20/03/2021 | sport | cricket | 1,286
England lose the Twenty20 series decider to an India side that followed a batting masterclass with some wonderful bowling in Ahmedabad.
We was just toying and playing with the English to keep the series live and we deliberately let the English win 2 games and the plan was to win the decider utterly convincingly which we did. Job done. Mission accomplished. We were never going to get beat in the deciding match. Jog on English. Excuses Excuses Excuses ?????? Removed

The series has put two arguments to bed.

Firstly, India are a better side who have better strength in depth than England and handle big moments better.

Secondly, Kohli is unquestionably and utterly vile

Comment Kohli is a nasty piece of work.What because he is passionate assertive and refuses to take a passive role.

India’s batting strategy was excellent in T20. Kohli was the stabiliser - he didn’t score much in the first 30 balls giving a stand at one end at the other end guys came and trashed the ball all over the ground. When the time was Kohli started the rampage. Superb
Their strategy is always admirable unlike brainless England. Removed

Pretty bored of the monopoly India have created alongside England and Australia to play so much cricket between each other. BCCI is run corruptly now, with these three sharing the money.

This is to the detriment of cricket at large.

Gone are the days of seeing the likes of Sri Lanka and winning the World Cup.
