    So, after all the confident predictions of an India whitewash, it appears the Poms aren't too shabby in subcontinent conditions after all. India, on the other hand, will now go into crisis mode. They rationalised that losing 4-0 away to both Eng and Aus was fine because, at fortress India, they'd use their knowledge and mastery of local conditions to reverse the result. Except that they haven't. This side needs some bowlers, and quickly too.
