Some wonderful bowling...caught the afternoon session today. Flintoff deservedly man of the match (and series), although it was a great team performance.

That said some of the Indians basically just threw their wickets away (Dhoni in particular). I was quite disappointed in their lack of fight, to be honest.

great win for England, especially given all the players we have missing at the moment.

Flintoff

Very poor by England today; admittedly Harbhajan was on fire but 204 is not a big target and to fail to complete even forty overs is disgraceful.

3-0. That's the series gone then. I can't see England winning 4 in a row. Has this ever happened anyway?

Well the matches haven't been close, so I dont see England bouncing back in such conditions. English batting lacks depth, too many average batsman. India has outplayed England, remarkably without their senior pros.

That's the series gone, then.

I don't think you can discredit England too much but India are simply on another level. I don't think we can start making them favourites for the World Cup yet though (their last non subcontinent series was in Zimbabwe, I think, in that three-way series with the Black Caps which they lost) but I'm genuinely excited for this team.

Scary scenes...

No excuse, really, but the BCCI should do the honourable thing and refund all those who paid to get in.

If you watch the Indian innings highlights at cricketvideosuncut it begins with this hilarious clip of Harbhajan saying 'fuck you' .

Wow, good stuff from the Indians.

They're definitely big favourites for the World Cup. There's some great talent there, considering they chased 289 successfully today minus the likes of Sehwag, Dhoni and Tendulkar. The only problem is that the World Cup is in the West Indies, not in India, but they should be able to translate that good form to good away form.
