Difference between the sides

Their lower MO and Tail. Every time they are 6 down before 100, their lower MO and tail rescues. Ours is pathetic after #5, everybody is a tail and play like #11 batsman a.k.a Shami!

They don't try reverse sweeps before settling in.

vijay ,n rahane hasnt improved infact has regressed

Bhuvi injury (not only we missed him as bowler but as lower order batsman)

Ashwin to is looking not 100% evident in his action and is to casual with his batting 

Curran n moeen has hurt us as all rounders

they are playing in their home conditions. At our home, Ashwins, Jadejas, etc., would do well too

Could turn it round, especially if they do well tomorrow and say your top order is the difference. It basically cancels out your **** lower order and vice versa

It could, but top order has never flourished in I4 . so why bother?

we have won on top order strengths in home conditions Kohli 200s and 200s and 300s from other batsmen. They have won our weaknesses.

Moen Ali v/s Ashwin:bumsmack:

Curran v/s Pandya :whack:

Butler v/s Pant 

 

Openers failed for both teams.

Lower MO bailed out in both innings while ours believing in Pandya, Ashwin, Pant failed miserably.

 

It's all about team composition in close matches,

Lossing back to back 4 tosses playing without 3-4 practice matches...Still we were competitive...

 

Its still not that bad..

this. and to add to that top order batting has been far from adequate with Vijay,Kartik,Rahul & Dhawan  being very poor combined .

In hindsight it is tempting to blame Ashwin & Pandya . But if  we consider them together as 'sum of their parts'  they both played their role of specialist batsman  & specialist bowler respectively. Both avg: around 41.5 with the bat and  28.5 with the ball combined.

And bowlers as a whole satisfactorily did their job. But  top 5 batsmen together  lost  the series

Curran and Moeen.

And middle order.

 

Also, I feel Vijay would have done better in the third and fourth Tests where batting conditions got better. He has the right temperament for a patient and long innings. He wouldn’t have done worse than Dhawan or Rahul in the fourth Test. Needlessly sent him back early

Could have like pujara but he has himself to blame.

Pakistani Moen Ali was the main difference between two sides.

Many Pakistanis try to pass of as Indians as you would know

In both the 1st and 4th test the biggest difference was Curran and dropped catches of Curran. He has single handedly beaten India with the bat and ball (got kohli in 1st innings here and ripped us open in the 1st test )

Curran.. else we would be 3-1 .

 

And I think pandya,ashwin , keepers have regressed a lot.

 

Pace unit and rahane pujara are on par with en ch lush counterparts.

 

Kohli is league's apart and the sole reason why the matches appear close

 

 

 Take out kohli we would have done worse than Afghanistan.
