India vs England: Only thinking about making a comeback: Virat Kohli

India vs England: Only thinking about making a comeback: Virat Kohli

Assuming the sun returns at Trent Bridge, and that India's batsmen cope rather better with England's quick bowlers than they did in the first two Tests, Rashid can expect his workload to increase as the series wears on - not least if England start to turn half an eye to their next Test challenge in Sri Lanka in November, when Rashid's wiles will doubtless be in higher demand.

The hosts had declared on 396-7, with Chris Woakes finishing on 137 not out, before Anderson reduced India to 17-2. But credit to England, they were clinical.

Woakes 137* India 107 and 130 all out. As a result, it took England only 82.2 overs to bowl the visitors out for just in the second innings. "It might be completely different when we turn up to Nottingham, but I'm sure he's not minded the way this week has gone".

With the India captain hampered by his back, Broad forced him on to the back foot and kept him playing and missing outside off stump, before Kohli gloved the ball on to his hip and the catch was taken by Ollie Pope at a deepish short leg. He was given out caught behind when the ball brushed his glove and Karthik was lbw to the next ball. Two senior India players (M Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane) were accommodated for A team games.

There's an obvious decline in development of skills best suited for tougher conditions and reason for that is the presence of flat pitches across the globe, even for most Test matches.

"The bowling unit were exceptional throughout the whole game", said Joe Root, the England captain. I am confident I will be fine in five days time with a bit of rehabilitation.

What did the pundit make of it?

The irony was that Ed Smith, England´s new national selector, found himself involved in a huge row with Yorkshire, the bowler´s county, when he recalled Rashid to the Test squad ahead of the series opener at Edgbaston. I am really pleased for Woaksey (Chris). The skipper was hopeful of getting fit before the crucial third Test. "We need a competitive game, and a close series". Very proud to take 100 wickets at Lord's.

"An all-round performance by England".

Now, it is learnt that the Supreme Court-appointed and Vinod Rai-led Committee of Administrators (CoA), which is currently overseeing the Indian cricket board, has made it clear to the Indian team head coach, Shastri, that the performances like those at the Lord's are "unacceptable". While we all want to stand by our team and support them when they don " t do well, going down without a fight is very disappointing to watch.

Virender Sehwag lamented the poor showing from the visiting batsmen and hoped that they have the mental strength to overcome disastrous displays in the remainder of the England tour.
