India in England

The Good: India in tests. Tendulkar, in sublime touch and his responses to the decisions against him, from the disbelief to the smile, priceless. Kevin Pietersen in the first test. Vaughn in the second. Kumble in the third, with the bat. Mascarenhas in the sixth ODI. Utthappa in the sixth ODI, even though many shots were pure luck. Monty’s fielding efforts. Ganguly giving Broad a piece of his mind.

The Bad: India in ODIs. Selection of Ajit Agarkar, some one give me one good reason. The on-field behaviour of both India and England. Indian batting in the final ODI.

The Ugly: Indians on the field. The umpiring. The series has to be the best case for increasing the use of technology in cricket. These umpires could are no Dickie Birds. Dravid’s captaincy – only thing that came close to the umpiring. Matt Prior behind the wickets. Powar, all times except when he bowled, and if I may ask, what’s with the hairband? Paul Collingwood, after his runout, in the sixth ODI. Yuvraj, with the ball, in the sixth ODI.

For a better article on use of tech, go here. And if you are generally fed up of India’s dismal performance in cricket maybe this will cheer you up.
