    Hardik most likely to back in Indian team than Nair.
    Hardik allrounder so he is most likely to bounce back in indian team in India for better balance attack.

    No better way to sum up the series. India had their moments but failed to capitalize on those on the other hand England did well to clinch that momentum and deserve to win the series as the scoreline says at the end 4-1.

    India might play Pandya because the Aussie's might prepare tracks similar to last summer with a few dead and flat tracks which broke up and turn was a big part in days four and five. But after so many test matches and management giving him security he has failed to do anything significant and more importantly hasn't shown consistency. He had his brilliant moments when he rescued India in SA when he scored 93 to reduce a lead. He took a five fer in England, but didn't do anything in the next match. Of course he'd be an X Factor, but his performances do not suggest it's the smartest idea to bat him at 6.

    I think India should look at what the Aussie's have done. They only had a 4 man bowling attack and played 6 batsmen in the Ashes. It worked for them whenever the top four went cheaply and they had that one genuine batsman (Shaun Marsh) at 6 which played well with whoever was at the other end and Australia got runs. In the last 8 overseas tests, India looked like they only needed four bowlers to get those 20 wickets where Pandya mainly took a single wicket or went wicket less, barring that five fer. The Indian pace attack, unlike before only needs three quality fast bowlers and one spinner to get 20 wickets. I believe six genuine batsmen are needed for Australia especially becuase India are facing Starc, Hazlewood and Cummins alongside a very successful spinner in Nathan Lyon.

    I think this series was the best chance for India to unprove the notion that Indian team only performs good in their home conditions as far as test matches are concerned. Really a huge disappointment. I expected a lot better this time in England. Now I can relate James Anderson concern when India keep on piling runs in flat tracks.

    I love how this guy shows up after every Indian series abroad and without watching a single match makes a conclusion like this. If you have watched even a single match apart form Lord's, you would not have made a post like this. Not only you, if you follow this thread, you can see every Indian fan was disappointed with the way the seris went. However, we were more disappointed by poor selection and captaincy at times rather than the actual performance of the team. Performance wise, this was probably the best series India has had in last 3 England tours. Of course, the scoreline won't prove that at all but that's why there is so much so talk about not paying importance to the scoreline because apart form Lord's it was, it wa probably one of the most competitive series I have seen in a long time.

    India need to talk with Aus cricket board for more practice matches during each test in between- in next tour in Australia.

    I strongly belived practice matches before test was not present for last rsa and in eng was prime reasons for Indian series defeats.

    BCCI should re-arranges schedule :for example Only after 5 days up-on Conclusion of Asia cup, test series vs WI starts

    One can agree with your points regarding team India performance but the bottom line remains same that is India fell short and lost one of the golden chance to have an overseas win. Personally as a cricket fan, I believe that England was an easier opponent compared to Australia and South Africa on their home grounds.

    You may perceive whatever you want but I will solely opine as a cricket fan and viewer that India should had won this series.

    With the amount of all rounders in England’s team currently it doesn’t come as a complete surprise
