We know the results of the tour of England and Australia, where India were beaten badly and now three of the Indian teams haven't qualified for the CLT20 semis.

Is this a worrying sign for Indian cricket? Are the Indian players drifting away from the proud record they had in the last 10 years away from home? I will hold my views for a little longer and hope they get back to their winning ways abroad.

KKR struck form in the last game but it was too late by then. Gautam Gambhir got back amongst runs but has been inconsistent of late and more so in overseas conditions. He was in great touch in the IPL and was a reason for his team's success, but has been tested by the moving ball. The biggest problem for KKR was that their spin-heavy attack did not get assistance from the pitches.
