You might call him a rubbish spinner but fact is, he does trouble the batsman with his accuracy.



I agree with your sentiment, but Ishant Sharma gave Moeen a nice piece of rough just outside off stump to aim at. From what I saw, Moeen was regularly aiming at it and missing it. But when he did hit it, the ball would bite viciously. His inaccuracy thus gave him a massive variation that is very difficult for the batsmen.

It is ironic that the more Kohli and Shastri talk of intent and character, the less of it this team displays. :grin:
Or is it that they just lack quality?

Rahul got one that kept very low - so, although he's been a failure all series, I can't blame him for this particular dismissal.

Pant's dismissal hurts cos it was sheer lack of application.

Maybe due to lack of maturity.

BCCI were in with a very good chance - the target had been brought down to about 95 or so.

Plenty of time in the game, nothing particularly dicey about the wicket - all they needed to do was to keep chipping away with singles and twos.

Absolutely no need to go for a lofted shot, especially knowing the field has been spread out.

I blame Rahane to some extent - as vice-captain and far senior partner, he should have advised Pant not to take risks.

This defeat will hurt Indians - they had a win in their sights when Kohli and Rahane were going so well.

Credit to England's bowlers though.

Not just Moeen, but Stokes too.

Despite his injury, he bowled really well.

None of the England bowlers gave anything away - that is one reason BCCI were always under pressure.

I watched the entire BCCI innings - can only recall the odd poor delivery from Rashid.

Otherwise, it was a pretty disciplined bowling performance.

Stats and Trivia

Kohli needs 56 runs to make 600 in a series for the fourth time. He needs 88 runs to surpass Mohammad Yousuf's tally of 631 and own the record for most runs in a Test series in England.

Cook needs one run to 1000 Test runs at The Oval. Having made over 1000 Test runs at Lord's, Cook is in line to become the third England player - after Graham Gooch and Alec Stewart - to reach 1000 Test runs at two different venues.

Ishant Sharma is four wickets away from becoming the top wicket-taker for India in Tests in England. Kapil Dev currently leads the list with 43 wickets in 13 Tests while Ishant has 40 wickets in 11 games.

Stuart Broad needs four wickets to become the fourth-highest wicket-taker among seamers in Test cricket. His team-mate Anderson, Glenn McGrath, Kapil Dev and Richard Hadlee are ahead of him currently.

England's lower order (Nos. 7-11) have contributed 697 runs in this series as opposed to India's lower-order tally of 351.

Cook will join Andrew Flintoff, Michael Clarke and Chris Rogers in officially retiring from international cricket at The Oval.

Wait! Didn't Bradman get 974 runs in a Test series in England in 1930?
That is still the world record for highest runs in a series anywhere, not just in England.
Then again in the 1934 series in England, he got 758 runs.

Sobers got 722 runs in the 1966 series in England.
And more recently, Graeme Smith got 714 runs in the 2003 series in England.

There are probably others too who've got more Test runs in a series in England - these were just top-of-head.
(Mind you, I've not even considered England players).

So where does this stat about Mohammad Yousuf come from?
Or is this about players from the sub-continent?

The Mark Taylor series (1989 Ashes) was.

The rest were just 5-Test series.

About time Pandya was dropped.

Look forward to see Vihare.

Always nice to see new talent.

Ridiculous Woakes misses out for Eng. Stokes, Jennings and Rashid all less deserving to play ahead of him.

Rahane drops Cook.
Can't bat, can't bowl - could at least take sharp catches in the past.
Looks like even that skill has deserted him.

Shami, Sharma and Bumrah are as good as Broad and Anderson. England is heaven for a seam bowler.

England's winning this series 'cos of Ali, Woakes and Curran efforts.

Familiar story.

Will not fault BCCI bowlers though - they didn't bowl badly.

Just that England's lower-order batsmen are pretty competent with the bat.

Broad coming in at 10 shows the depth in their batting.

I was impressed by Rashid too - excellent judgment of which balls to play, which balls to leave.

And getting right behind the line - good old-fashioned technique.

With Buttler at one end, it is not entirely surprising that England got to 332.

BCCI's batting is all-too-predictable now.

This should have been one of the easier wickets to bat on, even with the movement it offered.

But these players seriously lack the quality to stay at the crease.

Was Dhawan day-dreaming?

Rahul got an excellent delivery - but I feel he needs to have a tighter defence if he wants to become a great.

Kohli - totally unnecessary, and I daresay surprising, given how responsibly he's batted all series

Rahane - forgettable series.

Pant - maybe he was criticised for throwing away his wicket in the previous game, tried to go defensive this time, just not his style.

Vihari - survived, and played some pretty decent shots. Looks ok, especially considering the train-wreck around him.

All in all, chasing the 8-ball again.

4-1 beckons.

Indian newspapers are also constantly talking about the fact that Anderson hasn't got Kohli's wicket in this series.
What's the big deal?

Importantly BCCI has lost the series - that is far more relevant a point than whether Anderson has picked up Kohli's wicket or not.

Well batted, Jadeja and Vihari.

Vihari looks like a batsman with decent technique and temperament for Test cricket - hopefully he will go far.

Jadeja has batted really responsibly today.

We are used to him coming in and throwing his bat around.

Today we saw him play a measured innings - with good judgment of which balls to play, which balls to leave.

He didn't spare the hittable deliveries, but he didn't take unnecessary risks either.

Really good to see.

Hope he can continue with this mindset in Test cricket.

I've always rated Jadeja as a test batsman. I swear whenever I watch India, I see him making runs somewhere in a series, whether they are match turning like they were against Australia, bullying but very entertaining like the were in India against England, or clawing India back into a game like here.

I think England is back to well on top here, though. England look set to post a big lead at 154 and counting with 8 wickets left. India need to spark a collapse. But regardless, great return game for Jadeja. Fair debut for Vihani. Pandya and Ashwin must be disconcerted. Jadeja may take Ashwin's spot for Australian tour.

BCCI's bowling was poor yesterday.

You'd think, being 40 short, they'd come out all guns blazing and try to reduce England to 50/5.

But it was nothing of the sort.

Ishant continued to bowl ok (well, just about) - but the rest were poor.

Though Jadeja got a wicket, he didn't bowl well - bowled far too short, and got punished by Root.

On the whole, BCCI bowlers keep on making one basic mistake.

They need to bowl fuller, make the batsman drive.

As the ball leaves him, good chance he will edge it to the slips.

This is SO basic, it is frustrating to see BCCI bowlers not doing this.

They can learn from Broad.

He is master at bowling a fuller length, and inducing an edge.

I think BCCI bowlers are just scared they may get driven for runs - a defensive mindset that might come from limited-overs cricket.

They can also learn from Moeen Ali. He manages to put the ball in just the right spot - making the batsman play.

If you don't even make the batsman play (and Cook was able to comfortably leave the ball on many occasions), you're just wasting deliveries (and tiring yourself). In Test cricket, this is a poor strategy - unless you're already mentally playing for a draw.

Pitch the ball up. Pitch the ball up. Pitch the ball up.

I think the Indian top order needs to learn more from Kohli if success in England is the objective. Kohli has been marvellous in a losing series.

Vijay, Dhawan, Pandya and Rahul have been disappointing. Pujara and Rahane inconsistent. Kohli - sublime. This was his Dravid-esque England series. Tick it off the to-do list. But will he return in 4 years with a batting line up that will stand up and be counted with him?

No. Jimmy Anderson bats too. All eleven players bat.

England top order sux. But the team made more runs than India's team. Think about it.

Clue: England is only playing 3 specialist batsmen for most this test series with Jos and Johnny keeping.

India has played 5 for most and 6 in this final test.

cracker of a series; 4:1 a bit harsh,as Bhaji just said should ve been 3:3 (haha). Test cricket at its best, all the strengths and weaknesses exposed.
Kohli Masterclasses, yes, but they are not enough in England if the other guys dont´'t step up. India bowlers were magnificent, with their best player injured at home at that. Shami alone could ve had 7for in this innings alone. Injuries by Ash and Ishant were more than crucial in match 4 resp.5. Excellent performances by Hardik and Bumrah (5for), KL and Rishabh. But England's lower order can bat better, has been like this for a long time. England? Tough team, best test side at the moment, look at Anderson and Broadie alone, and they re not done when they take a rest. Young Curran deservedly Man of the Series, Anderson, incredible, needs "only" 55 wickets now to have a crack at Kumble. Farewell, Cookie. I feel like a Federer is leaving the stage. Who on Earth is gonna open now for England? I can hear the discussions in the pubs and clubhouses.

21.5 Fair delivery – the feet

For a delivery to be fair in respect of the feet, in the delivery stride

21.5.1 the bowler’s back foot must land within and not touching the return crease appertaining to his/her stated mode of delivery.

Lol. In what world is the bowlers foot not landed in my photo?

#clueless

Not your fault, clearly English is not your first language and you don't know what land means.

All that matters is where the foot lands - not where it ends up. It's not prospective. It's instant.

#ignoramus

Katto, I already think you're stupid. If you want to argue with me- do me the decency of you doing your homework first and this includes basic English. Don't waste my time. I do get things wrong on rare occasion - but you're simply thick or have no grasp of english comprehension.

Hint - "mode" not even 'then stride'. Now leave me alone.

Lol. I have mild myopia but a zoom ability

Get your attempted face saving ass out of here you retard :D

I don't care if you admit you're wrong or not. I know you are.

But your face saving attempts are pathetic.

You lost. Move on. You misread the rules, and now you're imagining the photo suggests something else. Zoom it if you're blind.


I don't respect you nor your intellect katto. I never will. You have no pride to salvage here.

Now go away. Shoo fool. Aint noone got time for your imaginations. Zoom reveals all retard - benefit of doubt for no ball delivery stride goes with bowler anyway - lol! (And on zoom i see a gap regardless).

Retard.

Katto - you were polite for the last few months and I reciprocated.

We can go back to that. Or we can tear strips off each other.

Warning: I have a kattoto peeler.

BCCI in England 2018: 5-Test series

Postby Going South » Thu Sep 13, 2018 4:57 pm

ladies. please.

Has raja resurfaced sober after all the alcohol he consumed on seeing BCCI losing pathetically in England AGAIN?

One consolation is that there won’t be any cookie monster when tour next time.

Perfect opportunity for BCCI to scrap all test cricket commitments and concentrate only on T20s.

Sorry, haven't been here for the last few days - was busy at a wedding.

Couldn't watch the last day's play - only kept catching the score.

Thrilled that BCCI collapsed from 325-5 to 345 all out.

Deserve to lose 4-1; fair reflection of the series.

3-2 or even 3-1 would not have adequately reflected England's dominating key moments in every Test.

There's an Asia Cup coming up in a few days, so some of these BCCI lambs will get a chance to become lions again. :-)

And all will be forgotten.

Bit strong there. Curran fought tenaciously, as did Ali, Woakes, Broad once, Buttler played a role.

If teams want to beat England in England, then they must learn that every batting position, 1 through 11, matters.

I highly doubt so. Your batsmen - bar Kohli - have sucked against swing for the past 5 tests. Have you got a new list of batsmen?

Boult and Southee will just carry on doing what they do best. Swinging out batsmen. You seem to overlook that NZ has no issues with England at either home or away. Your batsmen - very much do have an issue with swing bowling.

Still history favours Asian continent team in Winning test matches with their spin power

NZ not good vs Specialist spin even in NZ.Certain venue NZ are too good with swing and bounce but still we can win series there after Defeated in back to back test in RSA/ Eng and (Aus.2018/19)

You seriously think NZ would prepare a pitch conducive for spin when India tours? :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

NZ did that for SA, but not India.

NZ doesn't even have a premier spinner. Your spinners would be given nothing from NZ pitches. Half the block at Hamilton spins like Calcutta, that won't be used. :lmao:

Jadeja averages over 85 in NZ. And the NZ team is not carrying spuds like Fulton, Rutherford and Anderson any longer.

NZ will give India, a lovely flat but grass covered road. There won't be much seam (due to the grass type) and very very little spin. NZ's bowling strength is in the air through swing, or banging it in short and skiddy via Wagner. So the pitches themselves will be placid and skiddy.

NZ will not even resort to a deadly greenie vs India (because we need you to tour for money).
