SL bowlers even Herath reminds me of the BD test team of few years ago. No concentration, bowling short, wide, over after over-waiting for the day to end to escape to their hotel rooms, only to groan about having to go back the next day.

Another 600 run inning by India.

This is too one sided.

Ashwin will most likely be the #1 test allrounder after this series.

Not sure if SL is going through a rough patch or we are simply too good for them, hard to believe the same team decimated Aus and had a well fought series draw against Bangladesh.

TBH whitewashing SL don't mean much, only thing that can satisfy me at this point is a series win in Aus, SA or Eng.

India has just been playing at their usual great level. What we are seeing is a completely deteriorated SL team. What a shame.

Giving up 2 centuries and 4 50+ scores in one innings. I am not sure when was the last time SL lost in these fashion. Feeling very sad. They use to be my favorite team when they got the test status. We didn't play cricket then.

SL, the underdog, had bite and flair. This team on the other hand has lost the confidence.

There is a difference between the team then and now. I d call that leadership.

Not saying SL would have beaten India with Graham Ford, but they were more organized, better drilled, more competitive in general.

The current situation is an absolute farce. Nobody believes in the captain, ex captain playing in the XI commands more respect. "Head coach" is a fielding coach who was supposed to be sacked for his failure with fielding. And finally they have a team manager who believes he is the boss-the reason why Ford quit.

Not a bad time to tour SL, or even better invite them for a series. Anyone who wants a boost in points/ranking i.e. No wonder Pakistan is so desperate.

India won by an innings and 53 runs, our 8th series win in a row, quite impressive.

This Indian team is the 2nd greatest team in the history of test cricket and certainly has all the potential to write their name as the greatest test team to ever play the game of cricket.

Not sure what Eclipse is on, but beating West Indies and Sri Lanka with their current setup/form is not sth i would take pride in.

Play in England, play in South Africa, play in Australia, play in NZ. They must prove themselves in those conditions. Very cleverly, very strategically they ve stayed out of those contests, focusing on weaker teams on away tours, and inviting top teams to play in Indian soil.

Sorry, I think u r wrong. BCCI haven't done it intentionally. India played lots of matches away from home during 14/15. They toured Australia, England and new Zealand during that period without hardly playing any matches at home.


Did anybody raise the question why was India playing so many away matches during that time? No, absolutely not. India toured those countries and now those countries r touring India, bcci has got absolutely nothing to do with it. This is how it has always been.


Another thing is, when south africa beat Australia in Australia some ppl act as if staffers have really done something special by beating Australia in Australia but when India thrash Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka the same group of ppl don't hesitate to dismiss the outcome of the series by citing the reason that it was played in Asia.

If this Indian team can draw a series in south africa and England it will certainly announce itself as the greatest test team to ever grace the cricket field.

India thrashed Sri Lanka, because the Sri Lankan side is in absolute shambles, can barely compete with Zimbabwe. Are you trying to compare that with South Africa's success in Australia?

Well now India are claiming to be number 1 in the Test cricket. You cant do that by inviting strong teams to India and making them play on substandard pitches and then beating West Indies and Sri Lanka away.

A part of me really wishes you were being sarcastic about all this.

South Africa is no match for this unbelievable Indian team. Saffers regularly get thrashed and humiliated at home. A team that performs so miserably infront of the home crowd shouldn't be taken seriously.

I think it's saffers who r notorious for dishing out substandard, doctored green mambas to the touring Asian teams, not Indians. India always prepares standard test wickets.
