In fairness I think that Foakes aside we have basically been in T20 mode.

Root played very aggressively, Pope and Archer had a dip, Leach has danced down the pitch more than I have ever seen him and Stokes played a shot a ball. You could probably say that Bairstow played more than a shot a ball. Two balls faced, about four shots played.
Report Aptdemon February 25, 2021 12:53 PM GMT
If Stokes plays a shot a ball, he doesn't have 25 from 34 and he doesn't get out defending.

Didn't matter on this pitch but England shouldn't go into another match with someone as bad as Archer at number 8. That's an all rounders spot for an average of 25. Archer is lucky to last 25 balls on any pitch.

do the icc still do anything about substandard pitches ?  - for all England's lack of ability to play spin you could build sandcastles outside off stump to the lefties and we haven't even finished day 2... do think the pink ball seems to have played a part though, whether the finish of it just means balls slide straight on more than you'd expect as has been suggested or maybe it's harder to see the seam and therefore anticipate the sliders

The main defence of the last pitch was "we" batted ok on it, fair enough but here you've got a part-time offie getting his career best figures and a long and skilled Indian batting line up getting spun out on day 1/2 in 53.2 overs.Plain. Pink ball may well have been a factor.

Everything was going fine until Kohli spoke up after the 1st test demanding that he did not want any more pitches like the 1st test and a return to the spin friendly wickets however the groundsmen have totally gone way overboard with the wickets prepared in last 2 test matches ,far too dry with excessive spin on the 1st days and not conducive to test cricket, ICC grow a pair and and challenge the BCCI after the conclusion of this series regarding the unsuitability of these last 2 pitches for test cricket, however India IMO a far better cricket team than England wherever they play.

England really shot themselves in both feet. Two opportunities to build match winning scores and they fluffed their lines.

The composition of the side is a mess. I might be prepared to accept the covid argument but I do not want to. I am not calling for heads to roll just an admission that they got it horribly wrong.

This was a really important Test Series and they have been completely out manoeuvred. Form and time in the middle is crucial. This is not some leftie social club where everyone should get a game and it doesn't matter who wins!

Don't know where to start. Why play 4 seamers? If Bess is not good enough why was he picked to tour? The handling of Moen verges from negligent to criminal. Pope looked shot to me before the game. Lawrence looked like he had the aptitude to progress. Bstard should never have been made to bat 3 and should have been around to net.

I don't care what anyone says about the pitch it was an amazing crazy Test Match and at times it was breathless. I think India have done themselves a disservice with he pitch but it was the same pitch for both sides. What are A Tours for? England have the money to send young cricketers to a country for a month or to to learn.
