Standing Still

India's second innings capitulation in Cape Town, which led to the loss of the series, showed that, despite the advances made by the likes of Sreesanth and Zaheer Khan, and the continuing excellence of Kumble, they persist in taking about as many steps backwards as they do forwards, and remain one of the most consistent sides in world cricket.

Utterly consistent in failing to make the most of their talent and in falling apart at the first sign of pressure.

Greg Chappell has a lot of work to do, and it remains to be seen how much longer he will be given to do it.

And you were wondering why I think England will beat them this summer?

pressure...thats the pivotal word. A small sniff of pressure and the familiar pack-of-cards story ensues.
But, I have to say England have well matched the Indians. Its going to be a tough fight between two very well matched teams.

Ananth, I agree totally. It should be an excellent series but I wish it was more than three Tests.
