Guess the margin of defeat for India?

Recommended Posts

we can only win if a bunch of guys bat heroically .... Kohli, Pujara and Pandya would be the key .... and who knows someone else could pull a rabbit out of the hat

just hope they play with a positive frame of mind with out thinking too much about the result, the  likes of Pant,Ashwin,Pandya seems to put too much pressure on themselves with a negative frame of mind. Seems they are already in a 'loser' frame of mind when they are at crease. THat needs to change. Fight and lose, then no problem.

The way I see it. Most of our batsmen are in decent touch at least relatively to how they looked in the first test. Pitch is alright to bat. We may need just 2 batsmen to score big, not very unlikely imo. 

 

Yup. One triple digit partnership from the top 5 and I think we'll get over the line. The pitch is similar to subcontinental pitches. Just need sound application.

India will win.

 

Pitch is a super flat wicket. English are clutcing on to straws saying pitch this that.. there is nothing in it. Only Shami came through, none of Eng trundlers will do any thing, apart from barbie.

yes its almost as if they read ICF and get the loser mind set..true. 

 

when they go out to bat its like they read ICF and become losers like ICF..very ICF..loser..ICF..ICfser..looser..looCF..its all the same.

agree.. even i felt initially that we could wind down, but looking at the pitch and the way it played, we just need to be confident. the bowling effort was superlative. i dont think the english can match it. lets see how moeen does in second innings. we will know the worth of  ashwin. whether our batsman made moen look like moenitharan or ashwin was crapwin. i hope it is the former..

English fast men won't be effective in 2nd inning and and mediocre English spinners can't run through Indian batting line up twice in the same test. India is likely to win, by 3-4 wickets.

Haha.. Curran is still there means 70-80 runs more to chase. Later Moeen Bhai will come and destroy us. We are losing by 100 runs at least

Moen is out. It’s cloudy and barbie.

Eng will probably score 300 if they survive first 30 minutes.Chasing 270,India will be off to a decent start of 70 for opening partrnership,raising all hopes.Then the genius ATG Moenalitharan will crash the party & bundle India under 120.Indian batsmen have no clue to play against him in his den since 2014.Only Pujara & Kohli have the skills to negotiate him.

I think we can go close, the only two thing is intent and application,the main threat is going to be moeen and Rashid, you don't need to be over conscious against them just look to rotate strike against them, spinners hate busy players more than attacking players coz that doesn't allow them to have a go at one batsman keep everything on ground except occasional chip shot, more is going to bowl outside off stump that is what we don't have to let him do.

While we have the skill to chase on this pitch, it strange we are such poor chasers in test considering how good we are in ODIs

Minus Pujara our batting lineup has a very ODI look so you never know these guys might surprise us. However given our history we are losing by 60-70 if not more.

First get the last 2 wickets....curran at very easily get a century batting with them....

200 runs defeat is more likely than india win....realistically 130-150 run defeat
