Only 6 series had been played in the last 35 years.

Dravid didn't say that way,he was only instilling confidence when he said that they can still win the series.Recently,when Endland were 0-3 down against India,the England captain was saying that they can still bounce back.Every captain does that ,nothing wrong in that.

Raina is not "Average below Player.He is a Talented Player,Only time will tell.

My Reaction ,topic of this thread is that I am very with the team.It is the below par performance from the Indians that they are finding themselves in this situation now,not the other way around.Had it been Aussies or the SA they would have wrapped the Series in style.India has this problem of gifting away matches.Also the 5 bowlers theory has backfired .
