      Cannot believe Australia lost that match and the series.

      Unbelievable cricket from My Mother country with their B Team

      Aussie cricketers should hang their heads in shame, especially our openers who give us nothing, game in and game out!

      Spin will be a big problem for England for the rest of the winter. Both playing it and bowling it.

      India's pace bowling is pretty handy as well. A long winter ahead

      Very true.

      Wonder how many of them will be back fit, they had their whole first choice bowling attack injured by the time of the last test in Australia.

      England a bit fu**ed in this match I think. Not too much they can do about it because their spin options are average.

      Jimmy Anderson though what an incredible sportsman.

      Shame he's from Burnley :D

      Bloody hell, ridiculous wicket this.

      England back in it but going to need someone to match what Rohit did.

      At the end of this match they will be able to remove this pitch with a dustpan and brush

      need to win this next match with it being a pink ball day night nonsense.

      Better for us in England as its a more palatable time which is of course one of the main reasons for doing it, but the overall game is bastardised somewhat.

      Might swing under lights, might not spin as much. Depends what pitch they have made really i guess.

      Seemingly disintegrated against the Indian spinners, on the first day of the Test !

      So they've made another minefield, but this time we won the toss and India have to bat last. The Indians have basically made the games a lottery by making the pitches too unplayable.

      If England can cobble 200 together they've a chance. I think our batsman have to play for the straight ones early on and protect their stumps and hoping it turns past the bat. Got out to a lot of balls skidding on yesterday.

      I dont think he hit that for the 3rd wicket. I know there's a spike but the ball doesn't deviate and the spikes continue long after the ball passes the bat.

      Hopeless from Pope ball didn't do a thing and he's danced around it.

      Archer in at 8 now, must be the worst 8 in test match cricket.

      We have to play straight now f**k these sweeps off. Need to nudge and nurdle a 70 run chase.

      Basically though we have fu**ed it. Wasted 15 overs on seam yesterday where India won the game.

      Broad should have been 8 in these conditions. He hates pace but we wasted him here when he could have got some quick runs against the spinners.
