    Bad stuff from India again. It's a ground which should favour them more, they had England in peril, and yet have let England back in the game again who now are ahead and will probably win.

    India just haven't won the crucial moments, they've messed them up. If India do lose this, will probably feel like the closest 4-1 ever. But then it's also kind of embarrassing to have played good cricket for large parts of this series only to walk away 4-1. We were largely rubbish in 2010, no batting to speak of, only really Amir and Asif looked good and of course three players fixing. And yet we still walked away with 3-1, and won oval convincingly. And this England team at present does not feel strong at all, they were vulnerable. Though have to say as the series (and the Pak one) has gone on, England look to have realised how to improve, bringing in guys like Curran, Woakes, Butler, bringing back Moeen.

    Ideally, ENG would like to bat till an hour after Tea on Day 4 and set a target of 370+ with 110 overs to bowl. Normally Oval track is best for batting on Day 3 and early part of Day 4 and ENG is lucky to bat in that period 2nd time, but need to increase scoring rate, otherwise couple of quick wickets, IND is back in the game.

    Who was it that was arguing that Cook was averaging 15 this series but 39 against Pakistan? And that was a sizable difference? Up to 25.50 now, so no longer a "sizable" difference

    150 lead with 8 wickets in hand.

    If the lead gets past 250 it will be difficult to chase down. Anything over 300 England will be very strong favourites to take the series 4-1.

    England are on the verge of smashing the number 1 side 4-1 without Anderson having dismissed Kohli even once. Says alot about your pateechar side.

    And Pakistan is ranked 7 despite winning in England.

    Says a lot about how rubbish your pateechar side is everywhere else in the world.

    Sure.... we were also ranked 7th before a certain other match. That didn't seem to have zero bearing on our performance on the day.

    And you wonder why every body calls it a fluke.

    And if Pakistan fails to win the Asia Cup at home this year, it will only further prove the fluke.

    So you better hope your teams wins this time. So much is on the line...

    Don't forget Kohli's dominance in this series or his dominance during India's previous series defeat.

    Yes, you will get the CT shipped over with a "We're sorry" note if India manage to beat us in the Asia Cup.
