When was the last time this Ind side pleasantly surprised with a result

Recommended Posts

There is no resilience, there are no herioc performances.Once the team is down ,expected results follow.And that's the case across all formats.

This team cannot be expected to win against the odds or when things are little tough.Bunch of softies these.

Serious question when was the last time you were pleasantly surprised by an Ind win,I don't remember any.

I don't follow cricket with the same intensity as I used to so may have missed something .... but nothing beats the comeback against Aus in 2001

Johannesburg few months back.

 

Team is good, need a couple of good batsmen, who dont go into a shell. and Bit of luck - like not loosing 4 tosses in a row lol.

 

Its a hard fought test series, hope they win the last test. Eng is not that good a team, so its possible.

Think India won one series in England last decade. So there have been those moments.

Winning a dead rubber is no big deal.

a 2-3 loss rather than 1-4  is going a long way in ensuring the team maintainig the no:1 ranking. Also keep in mind we lost all tosses .When END came here they won most of the tosses yet could't win a single test in India.

People didn't get the gist of the thread.Its specifically about this team may be last 5-6 years.You look at matches where we are chasing big in tests or ODIs in big matches Every result is as per prediction and that's a loss for Ind.

The 1986 series in England was probably the last time  India managed to win more than one test match in a SENA country. After that it has only been an odd win here and there. For me, the 2007 series win in England was the last pleasant surprise.

That series was a good win in 2007 as England were the favourites and damn strong at home ,unbeaten in  a home series for a long time
