“It is right up there with beating Australia in the Ashes. Obviously India are a very good team, the number one team, and to knock them off is a very good feeling,” said Bayliss after England sealed the series with a 60-run win in the fourth Test.

“There were some difficult conditions especially on day one. We have said before, under a bit of pressure these guys have got a bit of character which is a good sign going forward.”

“Joe has always said he wants to bat at four. He understood where I was coming from that if we had a number three averaging 50 to allow him to bat at four, that would be handy. But I thought it was for the best of the team he batted at three,” he said.

“I’m sure there will be discussions on a few things in the next couple of days. Batsmen would like to have a settled position in the order. You always find in any era or team there are one or two guys who have to be a bit flexible,” he said.

“Moeen has been that guy for us over the last few years. When Root asked him if he was keen to do it he jumped at it. In the right conditions I would not put it past him.

“He works hard at his game. In spinning conditions he can cover that pretty well at the moment but his challenge will be on the faster wickets but we haven’t got any of those for a while.”

“Hopefully we can find someone who can do a decent job at number three and he can bat where he feels most comfortable. All credit to him. He has taken that role on with no problems. He has taken one for the team in that respect.”

 

“We will get together after this Test and see who is fit and available. We will definitely want to win the last Test, and I see a future with them (Anderson-Broad) at the moment,” Bayliss said.

“They are the most successful pace bowlers in this series and it will go down to how their bodies are feeling. We spoke before the series if their bodies would double up in close Test matches. So we will have to wait and see how they are in 48 hours’ time.

“The numbers of Tests we have played this year have been spread out. There is another reasonable gap until we play the Tests in Sri Lanka. There is a bigger gap again and then another couple of months leading in to the West Indies. Them only playing Test cricket does give them a bit of a break.”

Speaks a lot about the respect kohli's india has earned, although it would be great if they lived up fully to expectations.

Its more to do with England being a sh.itside nowadays who loses lot of games at home and yet they beat us. Obviously it will be a overwhelming win for them when a number#6 ranked side beat a #1 side. When the gulf between the side is so big, it is bound to be on par with their best victories. Also, to rub salt to our wounds, they rolled out a dry turning pitch in our do or die game and we still crumbled. So this is definitely huge for them.

LOL Respect. England is weakest side of their last 40 years. Winning against #1 side will be big for them but our teams are useless in overseas from long time. Finally we had attack to get wickets but our batsman started to show their true colors now.

So that proves my point, we had an attack known for getting wickets and reputable batsmen (who didn't show up). Number one ranked side who have fought harder than the 0-4 and 3-1 sides who toured before. They dissapointed but are respected, same was said by the SA side.

It is. Many people started comparing this side with old aus side of 90s till 2007. We are #1 for such long so obv we are strongest side. If we would have won this series you would have claimed this to be better side than old aus side. I bet it.

I have never seen Indian fans so much confused about who should be in playing 11. We allways assumed that playing 11 was allways the best playing 11.  A non performer, was most likely going to be replaced and he was only there till we found a replacement. Fan expectation and team management were allmost in sync. So, we took the loss or win on our cheeks and mooved on.

 

The real problem is , there is toothless BCCI and deep distrust in playing 11's  selection and coach.

 

I remember during Afridi Hafeez and tuk tuk days, Pakistani fans were questioning their team management.

first two rules of a sporting fan.

 

1, Believe in your team

2, Support your team

 

if you can not tick the above two, find a team that you can tick these two with and be their fan.  Wishing improvement from a team that you support is one thing, belittling their acheivements is another.


India competed in all games except the second test ( which was a very poor wicket and India was very unlucky) inspite of loosing all tosses and starting with a disadvantage each time.  If india batted first every time the result would be opposite.

 

all this bs about weakest side --> lets see if the next team that travels to england manages anything.

Wait what? You seem to have gone on different tangent it seems. 

 

Are you saying that expecting India to beat England because we are stronger and England is a shitty team == not believing or supporting your team :rofl: 

 

You yourself will need to find a new team to support since you do not believe/support your team to beat a crappy side like England. Why would a fan lower any expectation and that too at the point when your team is strongest(#1 ranked for the longest amount of time in their history) and playing against a team that is ranked 5/6th. You seriously need to believe/support the team and not throw in the towel everytime we tour SENA, that is what is called being a fan.

It's not. Not even close. Bayliss is just trying to big himself up becausehe knows he is a poor Test coach and he knows England have gone backwards in Tests under his leadership. Most teams win at home but England are the least dominant at home out of everyone except WI and Bangladesh. No one else would have lost a Test at home to WI, SL or Pak
