Why all the whining on social media about India losing. Winning streak had to end someday. You can't win all matches and 210 was a good score. But the pitch got better in second innings and Delhi is a small ground so it was always chaseable. Pants Captaincy and batting was also fine. 

 

I still feel we need to play Umraan. Nokia showed yesterday if you ball well then high pace is very difficult to play. Only issue is who he replaces. 

 

Also, Ishan kishan said it's a 150 pitch 😂🤣

Pant didn't manage Chahal properly. He bowled him in powerplay which isn't his strength. Pant needs to learn tactics ASAP.

We can't know if it was pants decision alone. Maybe coach and staff also decided to try chahal in powerplay. 

 

But ya it was a blunder. Chahal ain't a powerplay bowler. If you want a powerplay bowler get Ash or Sundar. 

 

Pant will learn with time. I am just glad atleast he is batting positively.

Ridiculous run chase by England. 160 to win in the last session, 6 wickets left. Bairstow and Stokes added 133 in 11.3 overs. Chased down with 20+ overs left.

Ya 

And both teams won't win anything going by the way things are going.

 

This happened earlier too in the late 90's when they sent 2 odi teams. One to the sahara cup in Canada vs Pakistan and another to the Asian or commonwealth games. Both teams lost miserably.

BCCI has completely shifted focus to IPL. With ICC giving them complete window for 2.5 months next year on and the cash they are getting why will BCCI care anymore about international cricket. We are going to lose more now than win.

Ya government had put pressure to send strong team in commonwealth because cricket was added first time. Sachin and Ajay Jadeja were sent there. And they deliberately played badly.

 

More recently we had a test team in England and a B team which played in SL.
