Eng lead extends to 165 losing only 3 wickets.....don't think ind can pull of anything here....it should be a draw. Unless Ind collapses in 2nd innings.....

Trott and Bell got it done and delivered the series to England with a highly probable draw. India, once formidable at home, needs to reassess the way it has been doing things ever since its batting stalwarts began to retire. It won't be long before Sachin also calls it quits.

Luckily for England, Captain Alastair Nathan Cook is less adventurous than Megalonychidae binging on Thorazine. So no "sporting declaration" is likely. The Blue Billion can hope and curse all they like

Even before the stalwarts retired they were humiliated 8-0 overseas. The only so called top team to suffer such battering.

I was talking about their performances at home when I posted "India, once formidable at home, needs to reassess the way it has been doing things ever since its batting stalwarts began to retire."

England have won the series first in India in almost three decades.

What happened Kohli, Gambhir and Sehwag? Did you not get those rank turners you were crying about when you were destroyed outside India? You still failed. How about playing Bangladesh next? Don't worry you can play us at home.... Feel sorry for Indian channels, "Angrezon ka band" did not go too well. This thrashing was absolutely deserved, but now they will say wait till you come to IPL.

This is probably the best series victory in the history of English cricket after the 2005 Ashes. Slightly ahead of the 2010-11 Ashes in Australia.

England shouldn't get carried away with this victory, South Africa is still some way ahead of them but England does seem to be clear no.2 in tests currently. I agree this is the biggest series win for them in some time, India has been pathetic. Atleast they used to be flat track bullies, now can't even play at home

He is just going through poor form, He should stay for 2014 Australia test series as well, maybe he will win his first series there and SA. He will open the batting with his son arjun.

Yes, I think it's important that they don't get carried away. They did that after becoming no. 1 last year. But this year they have learned their lesson not to look too far ahead.

As far as South Africa and England are concerned, I think England have the more balanced bowling attack. But South Africa's batting is incredibly strong -- probably one of the best ever. That batting makes them almost impossible to beat home or away.

All credit goes to England for bouncing back after getting thrashed in the 1st Test. They performed as a unit and showed they were clearly the better team. A huge achievement for them to win their 1st series in India in about 30 years.

As for India, well a lot of questions need to be answered. Will this dreadful series make Tendulkar finally retire? A big reason they lost this series was because of him. Also is it time to relook this opening pair. Only 1 century and 2 half centuries between these 2 in 13 innings. Not only that, these 2 have been the most talkative even after mediocre performances. Time for the selectors to teach them a lesson and get in youngsters like Rahane and Mukund? Finally the big question, should Dhoni remain the captain? If not, who will take his place?

Lots of questions for this Indian team in transition. England, on the other hand, have a very settled squad and showed why they're a top 3 Test team in the world.

Dhoni rates the loss against BD in WC higher than 0-8, 1-2 season.

This is just good! This is just SOOO RIGHT. Karma is a mofoing bitch! After all that nonsense BCCI pulls with the media and all that, it just feels RIGHT! It's just feels so RIGHT!

England were lot more professional. They had plans. India just blabbed a lot, they still won't just STFU and had no actual plan. They thought they could just stuff their team with bunch of 3rd class spinners on shitty thread and win the series.

I think excuses are running out on India not hosting Bangladesh. Lots of crowd missing in that England series besides they're not that great of a team. I reckon Bangladesh is good enough to beat them 3-2 at least in an ODI series at their grounds but that's if India uses its young guys instead of their experience old guys otherwise India will still have the upperhand over us.
