In case the world is unaware England are about to become the world No 1 Test cricket team. We are currently on Day 4 of the third Test (of four) against the former world no 1 side, India. We are currently 2-0 up in the series and need one more wicket to beat them by two matches which takes us to world top spot.

My man of the series? MS Dhoni, the Indian captain, for his decision to let Bell continue batting in the second Test.

Bravo!

oh thanks i will send you the bill :biggrin:.

I have many cunning excuses ;).

Actually hangover persisted even after 2nd test loss, since they were sitting ducks in their hotels, had nothing to do but sulking in more drinks.
I hope riots are now over and they can breath some fresh air for next matches.

After 3 humiliating defeats in a row, there is no question of who can claim to be the best Test team in the world. Well played England! The top spot is well deserved for a team which made the pitch appear a batting pitch when batting and a bowling pitch when bowling. :biggrin:

I guess too much IPL is deteriorating the Indian test squad.

Congratulations England.
A thoroughly well deserved victory after pulverizing the Indian side for three consecutive tests.
What a shame...and some people talked of a total whitewash....

Congratulations England, I expected them to win the series. but they have dealt India crushing blows three times in a row.
I dont think India ever looked as dangerous as this english team even at their height.
We have been shown to be flat pitch bullies yet again.

I greatly respect the congratulations from Indians here - the 'spirit of the game' is far more important than winners or losers and in terms of that India were supreme.

Gotta hand it to you Indians.

You guys are far more civilized than I ever could be.

My reponse to this woulda been something like:

You won because you cheated!
You guys won because we let you win and we're sick of parades honoring our sports heroes!
You guys won because we were in shock after seeing your women in shorts and their hairy legs!
You guys won because tankie's sister wears army boots!

Etc....

ANs you would still say this after your country won the world cup, thats a competition with 16 other nations and only a few months later got their asses handed to them ?

Football is not played across 3 different formats. ;) Going from a 10 minute batting run-fest to a format where you have to survive for hours if not days is quite a transition. Football world has nothing like it. :biggrin:

Well, its the same excuse given for England football teams lack of performance when it counts. oh it must be the premier leagues, they're not rested enough.

I really don't care.

They're pro's, they get paid like pro's and one expects them to deliver.

Modesty as this comes, My Dear Dave, is to accept this side's maladroitness to play like international level players and to also look back, not many days back here in India, where God was put to shame.

when I read the title I knew that this thread could not be about football.

Congratulations to both teams. Noit just for the outcome, but for understanding cricket in the first place.

England played like champions. Kudos!

I in my entire life have never seen a team where all of the 11 players are in such awesome form. This England team have everything to be the #1 in ODIs and T20 as well.

Hrm, maybe both the countries need to understand how your ppl do it.

That is to say, how to have domestic leagues and still prevail (more than we do) in international meets.

Don't be too harsh Delta'. Mark my words, they will come back with vengence the next time we meet. Never stroke a sleeping tiger. ;)
