Ind vs Eng: Abject surrender and a gutless fight cost test ranking

MS Dhoni’s Team India doesn’t seem to have any shame nor has it learnt anything from its mistakes.

On Sunday, India crumbled for a second successive innings defeat. It was the third worst defeat for India in its cricketing history as it got bundled out in a mere 29.2 overs, 143 minutes for 94! England won the 5th Investec Test at The Kia Oval as a result by an innings and 244 runs. The hosts captured the 5-match Investec Test Series 3-1 with only Lord’s being the aberration to lift the Pataudi Trophy 2014.

Team India should hold their heads in shame or rather just don’t hold it! Because losing within three days is not funny as England inflicted yet another defeat on India.

It was England’s second victory inside three days in as many matches after they thrashed India by an innings and 54 runs to win the fourth Test at Old Trafford.Team India’s capitulation was done and dusted when the visitors collapsed on 94 all out, an even worse effort than their meagre first innings 148.

Sorry to say but this could be the last Test for Gambhir on overseas shores as the Delhi opener failed to impress.

The Indian team started their downfall well and early as opener.India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni had played a lone hand in making 82 in the tourists’ first innings. But in the second innings, he fell for a five-ball duck.

Joe Root was named man-of-the-match for his brilliant century while James Anderson walked away with the man of the series award. India’s Bhuvneshwar Kumar was awarded the India’s man-of-the-series award, nominated by England coach, Peter Moores.

“We’ve lost a lot of confidence over the five-Test series, it is disappointing, there will be many experiences which the youngsters will learn – not too many have played Tests away from home and hopefully they can take that it into the future. Right from the start, our batsmen never really performed, the lower order helped out…” were the words of MS Dhoni at the post-match presentation.

Dhoni is now blaming inexperience for the defeat, little does he remember it’s his so called youngistan politics which compelled experienced Ganguli and VVS Laxman to put down their papers.

This abject surrender and a gutless fight shown by the Indian Test team shows that this team is NOT destined to win on away tours! Especially when WorldCup is just 6months away. Team India, firstly, needs a recheck and it must begin from that corrupted BCCI!

We lost the series or better we say MSD team gifted the series to England which costed our ICC test ranking, England jumps to 3rd spot and we at 5th.

WI tour of India announced

The BCCI has released the finalised dates and venues for the West Indies tour of India in the month of October and November. The Carribean nation will be touring India to play in 3 Tests, 5 ODIs and a one-off T20 international.

The tour will consist of three Tests, five One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and one Twenty 20 International (T20I).

The three Test matches will be hosted at Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad. The five ODIs will be hosted at Kolkata, Vishakhapatnam, Cuttack, Dharamshala and Kochi. The only T20I will be hosted at Delhi.

The tour will commence with the ODIs from October 8 and the final match had been allotted to Kochi with Guwahati and Kanpur as stand-by venues, BCCI sources said.

The T20 international is scheduled on October 21 followed by a three-day gap before the commencement of three-Test series. The last Test is scheduled from November 15 to 19, the sources said.

Windies will also play two warm-up games on October 3 and 6, before the commencement of the ODI series, they added. The last time West Indies toured India was in 2013, and was significant specially because of Sachin Tendulkar‘s retirement from international cricket.
