True, but Indian spinners esp. Kumble have found a nice rhythm and this pitch suits them more than the Nagpur one.

But like Australia used to do, England will surely not give in easily.

It seems England made quite a few fielding errors in this game. It wasn't exactly as if India needed any HELP to reach just 144 runs.

But credit where it's due, the Indian spinners were great.

And special mention goes to Kumble- match figures of 9-146

India is one of the strongest home team. Given the previous history of Mumbai pitch and the momentum of Indian spinners, India should be able to go 2-0 with strong resistance from England.

Alastair Cook ate some bad curry or something. Ouch.

I can't see England winning this at all.

England 1 Owais Shah, 2 Andrew Strauss, 3 Ian Bell, 4 Kevin Pietersen, 5 Paul Collingwood, 6 Andrew Flintoff (capt), 7 Geraint Jones (wk), 8 Shaun Udal, 9 Matthew Hoggard, 10 James Anderson, 11 Monty Panesar.

India 1 Wasim Jaffer, 2 Virender Sehwag, 3 Rahul Dravid (capt), 4 Sachin Tendulkar, 5 Yuvraj Singh, 6 Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), 7 Irfan Pathan, 8 Anil Kumble, 9 Harbhajan Singh, 10 Sreesanth, 11 Munaf Patel.

Wow. Shah's gone off with cramp so KP's come in but a valiant effort nonetheless.

There was a bit of swing, I think, so I suppose Dravid fancied Pathan and Patel would take some quick wickets against what was a very depleted England lineup.
