Kohli yet again may be the difference
What do you mean Smith needs to prove himself against Spin?
2 hundreds in India, 1 in SL and a good UAE tour, 200 at Lords and has done well against all bowlers although he didn’t do as well in SA.
I meant by his own lofty standards, that UAE tour was just so so.
He has yet to perform in Ban and their spinners run riot of England the last time.
Lords is a spinning wicket? Didn't knew that.

A gripping test match. Enthralling cricket.
The UAE tour was early in his coming of Age, remember Steven Smith didn’t start scoring runs from his debut, he failed in Bangladesh but I think he still scored one or two fifties so that shows he’s a good batsman.
Look a dodgy 100 won’t prove Kohli to be good, Smith has always scored against good bowlers, I’m not saying Kohli is a bad batsman infact he’s great because he has scored runs in Australia, NZ, SA and England however I feel Smith is better, Root is a good batsman however he can’t convert however imo a batsman that gets to a fifty must be good to have survived 100 balls, and Root has scored more consistently against good teams.
First 10 overs of tomorrow will decided the fate of the game.If 2 wickets falls then it goes in England's way otherwise it's India's game.
Malan actually dropped another chance early on.
This guy is the definition of mediocrity, England's selectors now need to start using there brain here, Moeen Ali is a guy that can bat and bowl decently, then you have James Hildreth who is a very fine batsman, he’s 34 but if you want to play some youngster then why go with Malan who is close to 30, you might as well go with Liam Livingston or Olly Pope, this Malan is treacherous, the fist SA to have disappointed for England, it seems that he can’t play pace or seam.
Malan is on par with Shan Masood but Atleast he could catch.
Malan dropped Dhawan in Indian second innings.
Lol, if you didnt watch the match why question me?
I questioned you on your 2nd post when in the post previous you criticized Malan for dropping a simple catch, now you're saying "at least he can catch"
Na, I was on about Shaani.
Kohli Kohli Kohli. What a player.
Massive wkt of Kohli followed by Shami for 0.
This is test cricket at its best
35 runs left with last wkt standing
tension in both camps
Eng win. Great Test match.
1 9 4
still haunts india
Stokes yet again proving what a world class all-rounder he is. The go to man for England in crunch situations.
India’s other batters need to contribute. It’s India v England not Kohli v England.
Looks like they have discovered another gem in Curran. He’s 50 was very crucial.
Yep phenomenal innings that won England the game.
Bowling wise nowhere near as hostile or quick as Ben but still a threat as he swings it.
Just checked the ICC ranking predictor. If England win 5-0 they get 7 points only even though India is ranked much higher than them. But if India win 5-0 they get 9 points, beating an inferior team.
All the Mahesh's and Vishnu's are hard at work behind the computers it seems.
just came on to laugh at hindustan
England deserve this humiliation
We don’t play two spinners even in the UAE, but here are India playing two spinners on a green track with most of the Test to be played in damp and overcast conditions, lol.
Number one test team can’t put out three seamers in seaming conditions eh.
lol ashwin counts as a seamer by india's standards
Yet they have so much arrogance as if we have produced their bowlers and they have produced our bowlers, England gonna smash that arrogance in just like we did on the 18th June 2017.
إن شاء الله
Indians 15-3 in the horrendous downpour at Lords.
Pope the debutant runs out Pujara lol.
rain keeping india afloat
Let’s see what Kohli is made up of.
numba one teammmmm
Lol commies cussing Pandya like no tomorrow.
This is where we need to respect Harry’s and Ajju’s contribution in that last session at Lords.
lool kohli dropped and caught then sobers dropped and caught
these indian bats need to be given a few extra innings to compensate for their incompetence hahaha
