India vs England 2011: News
Onus on India to sort out priorities
Earlier, I was of the view that India had shoddy preparation to blame for their performance. But after the annihilation at Edgbaston, I am convinced this England side would have beaten even a battle-ready India.
England are reaping benefits of giving priority to Test cricket
It was a proud moment for former England batting stalwart Dennis Amiss, deputy chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board. His four-year goal has been accomplished; and the icing on the cake was England also becoming No 1 on his home ground, Edgbaston.
England were too good for India
We’ve had miserable series in the past when nothing seemed to go our way, when questions were asked by supporters regarding our motivation, commitment and fitness, and when everything appeared dark.
It could get worse before it gets better
India’s performance against England has been abysmal but things could get worse before they get better. India’s disastrous tour of England has been a while in the making.
England crush India in 3rd Test, snatch No.1 Test spot
India lacked a roadmap for the England series
I'm wary of confusing acclimatisation with preparation, for it can only be a part of the entire process. Or else, how would one explain India's poor show even in the Test matches?

Time has come for Sehwag and Gambhir to play in tandem
A lot has happened since the second Test at Trent Bridge --- riots have broken out in London and Birmingham, Rahul Dravid has returned to the one-day side and subsequently announced his retirement from the shorter format, Zaheer Khan has suffered an injury and RP Singh has returned from nowhere.
Impact of Twenty20 on Test cricket is apparent
It is fantastic to have a break in the middle of a long series, as it is good to rekindle freshness in the system. In terms of a winning side, you like to stay on a roll, writes
Dravid's decision to retire a fitting retort to selectors
There have been some significant off-field developments in the last few days, none more notable than Rahul Dravid's recall to one-day cricket, and his subsequent retirement from it, writes
Who might get the nod
Look for it, there’s life beyond Zaheer too
Why is the world No. 1 side looking so listless in England? Ask anyone, an expert or an ordinary fan, and you will get one name- Zaheer Khan.
Dravid's work ethic an example for the others
Mohammad Ali said he could dance in the ring only because he ran miles on the road. Rahul Dravid, otherwise unlike the champion boxer, says his mantra is similar.
Pick Mukund over Sehwag
With players either overcooked by playing too much cricket, like Harbhajan Singh, or undercooked by playing too little, like Virender Sehwag, Dhoni has to think clearly ahead of Edgbaston.
Scourge of IPL is reason for India's injury woes
India's imminent fall from the top, judging by their swift capitulation in the first two Tests, has and will spawn many interpretations.
Money a temptation to hide injuries?
