    Amazing how England have almost completely separated their Test and T20 sides now. Tim Bresnan and Samit Patel were the only two players on the field today who played in the Test series. By comparison, India had Gambhir, Kohli, Yuvraj, MS Dhoni, Raina, RAshwin and Piyush Chawla who played in the the Test series. And probably Sehwag and Zaheer Khan too but it seems they're injured or something.

    India played BAD cricket! with all the IPL cricket, I'm surprised that they are not more competative!
