What did he say?

We have the best team, we want to/can be the best travelling team, we have best fast bowlers, Virat better then Sachin in terms of preparation for the match.... we dont care what the outside world thinks, we know we're good (read world beaters) blah blah blah .... Athers had a smirk all along.

Was expecting this chest thumping from the cheerleader not surprised.

Great win, first time in a long time both bowlers and batsmen played well. Kohli deserves a lot of credit. Before Kohli, India would have given up after Lord's and decided to focus on the process instead. Kohli's fire and intensity lift the whole team up. He also has the courage to keep playing 5 bowlers. I have always been in favor of that in overseas tests. Someone like Pandya wouldn't be in the team before. I don't agree with some of Kohli's decisions (like dropping Bhuvi in SA which I thought was moronic) but you can't deny that we are much better in overseas tests with him as captain than Dhoni. 

Spot on

This is what i hate about this moron but I'll give him credit for this match. He was very focussed on the balcony for this match and did act too bravado

Thank you Pandya Bhurmrah.

Credit do Rahul to man up as opener and slip fielder.

Credit to Kohli for dropping Murli.

 

However considerable credit must go to English selection and Root who dropped a young kid Curran who has been most valued player of the series till second test.

@Gollum made some great calls after the toss and even before Indian innings began.

 

That ..

 

It was really a bad decision by England to field first after winning the toss.

India is going to win the test.

India is going to bat well on the 1st day and make a good score.

2nd day would be difficult to bat and England are going to struggle batting on the 2nd day.

I hope this ends or put pause to useless arguments about declaring much earlier with so much time left. 500+ score allowed Kohli to keep attacking and never have to look at the scores ever. Once teams chasing mentally feel target is way beyond they loose half the fight as most teams are not good at blocking now.

Kohli got man of the match?  would've given it to pandya for the turnaround 5 wicket haul in 6 overs.  That swung the match

He was the REAL reason why we got the huge lead of over 150 upfront.Take that out and it would have been over for India century or no century.

I am not underestimating Bhumrah. Match is won by our bowlers. No doubt about it. What I am putting is English fan perspective. Think of a kid who was given Indian jersey, does match winning performance, and then Kohli drops him. icf would have been on fire.

 

There is issue with Roots selection. He has to let go of likes of Cook Anderson, Rashid and his ego/chewtiyaap

When will squad for 4th 5 the test be declared

England announces team for 4th test with Vince included but Bairstow will bats at 4 and jos Buttler will

Keep wicket.

 

I do not think new selector interested in Moeen but he

Has good track record at Rose bowls (Ageas bowls).Eng.let go Porter without trying, reminds me

Gurukeerat Mann.
