0Genadeloos Indië Despatch Besoekers

Daar was 'n punt in die vierde toets tussen Indië en Engeland toe die tuisspan was 30-tal lopies agter hul teenstanders met net drie paaltjies oorblywende.
Dit was 'n valse dagbreek al en die meesterlike Kohli en pragtige Jayant Yadav (in net sy derde toets) gekombineer om die wedstryd te neem en daarmee enige hoop op 'n reeks trek buite die greep van die besoekers.
Dit beteken om die kloof in ervaring van toestande op die subkontinent onderstreep. Indië gejaagd huis hul groter kennis en begrip van hoe om te speel in so 'n arena. Deur die grootste deel van hierdie reeks het hulle die veel beter van die kante gewees en 'n oorwinning was onvermydelik een keer 'n voorsprong van 200 is oorgegee.


The way Eng­land capit­u­lated this morn­ing was though dis­ap­point­ing to say the least. Defeat may have been inev­it­able but a line up with such qual­ity and depth should not have crumbled so eas­ily.
So het die reeks verloor en daarmee saam, I would sus­pect, will end Cook’s ten­ure as cap­tain. The momentum is now with India and if I was a bet­ting man I would lay down a few quid on a fourth vic­tory in the fifth and final test.
Had Eng­land won this series it would have been a minor mir­acle. A spin quar­tet of Rashid, Ali, Barry and Ansari was nev­er going to ser­i­ously trouble India on home con­di­tions and Eng­land lack an X-factor twirler.
Nev­er­the­less Rashid and Ali have shown them­selves com­pet­ent. Ansari is per­haps a work in pro­gress. I can’t see Batty real­ist­ic­ally adding to his caps unless he gets one final hur­rah in the dead-rub­ber final test.
Woakes had con­tin­ued to show his abil­ity in dif­fi­cult con­di­tions and Stokes is rap­idly becom­ing an all-round­er of world class abil­ity.
In the bat­ting line up Hameed has shown him­self to be cap­able of play­ing test crick­et for years to come. Much has and will be writ­ten about him and the admin­is­trat­ors need to make sure they nur­ture and devel­op his undoubted tal­ent. Well done to Keaton Jen­nings too – scor­ing a cen­tury on debut is no mean feat.
Likely cap­tain elect Joe Root has scored a reas­on­able amount of runs and Jonny Bair­stow has con­tin­ued to impress both behind the stumps and with bat in hand. After a fair while since his last test it was good to see Jos But­tler in the runs too. He’s anoth­er with undoubted tal­ent and always use­ful as the back-up stump­er on a tour.
All in all then a few reas­ons to be cheer­ful for Eng­land but well done in par­tic­u­lar to the Indi­ans and their ruth­less dis­missal of the oppos­i­tion.
