Winning one series or one match out there is not "schooled"
Read what I posted again...you get embarrassed on the so-called "easy tracks" often

P.S Poms were struggling today against part timers before Cook and Patel rescued them. Imagine against proper spinners

It is easy for the Indians accustomed to batting on dusty, flat roads. As soon as they see a hint of green (like in 2004) they crumble and can't get a grip on a series.
As soon as the English or Australians see a hint of a spin,t hey start crumbling. Happens often in the subcontinent pitches.

Kohli is a limited overs specialist and lacks the mental toughness for tests.
Keep telling yourself that India doesn't lack good batsmen - go and check who won the last Emerging Players tournament (which btw happened in Australian pitches). Exactly what I said about being ignorant about cricket


Quote:
Tests are the pinnacle, and once a new ball is manufcatured that everyone is happy with, and tests can go day/night, then the ratings & crowds will come back with a surge of momentum. Enjoy the crash and bash whilst it lasts.
Test is just another form of cricket which is dying. Except in a couple of coutries, the rest of them have already adopted T20 in importance and that is how it is going to be.

Any domestic cricket that focuses on test is worthless and has no future basically. They are just there to appease a minority who wants to love it but can get nobody to care for it.

Here's another good news. Yet another test series potentially to be pushed in favour of limited overs cricket.
