    As an Indian, I love cricket!

    What do you guys make of the on-going test series vs. England?

    I think now India can't win because England will bat India out of the game, it will be a draw...

    The scoring rate is really slow and the way Vijay & Pujara leave the ball, it will be even slower. Plus the pitch won't trouble Indian batsmen on day 3 and 4.

    Only chance of England win is if they score around 600 and bowl India out twice.

    Given that they already scored 569, England is in a comfortable position to play it agressive and limit India in its first innings. On India's part its a uphill task to make runs and make them with wickets intact. We have seen in past on how we lose wickets in quick succesion, we should be play it on a session basis. Good luck to our boys.

    Am I the only one here who feels a change in the test captaincy is long overdue?

    I feel the same. Dhoni is probably the best ODI captain but not for Test matches.

    Wouldnt say Dhoni is the best captain in any format but he is tactful and mostly lucky in numerous occasions.

    But test cricket requires more than tactfulness and luck, it separates the natural leader from the rest. Most of the test captains today are opting for an aggressive approach, they want a result, win or lose. Dhoni is still stuck thinking he can play out the overs in Test cricket, ensuring that he doesnt have many losses on his resume.

    India requires a more aggressive leader, one who doesnt mind loosing a match or two to win a series, one who doesnt think that a 1-0 lead in a 5 test series is enough for a series win. India needs a captain who ends the CSK management quota in the Indian team

    At present in England Tour Indian Team looks like a Roadside Team. The middle order is completely failing.The complete reshuffle of middleorder required.

    The current India squad in England doesnt have many option with middle order batsmen. The selectors sent a team with too many pace options and one too many top order batsmen. There arent many options for the Indian team in the middle order except for really bold moves like dropping Virat and playing Ojha in his place. But given Dhoni's past choices with batsmen, that is least likely to happen.
