Finally England managed to win a match against India in their tour. India batted poorly to be bowled out for 120 in their 20 overs. This total was never going to be a big ask of the England team. Kevin Peterson led the chase with an attacking fifty to seal a four wicket win for England. Cheers! Ram

It is t20, the match will change in any stage. It will change in few overs difference. It is depending upon batting power. Indian players failed in making big score.

Yes, the batsmen failed to put a decent score on the board. 120 was way too less to protect for the bowlers. The changes made in the team also did not help. Cheers! Ram

Overall it was a poor performance by the batters. Dhoni also tried a bit, but he also failed to take India to a big total. He was finally dismissed by the English via a runout of the last ball. Cheers! Ram

Although i dont care about this format of the game at all, still i am not able to get the approach of Indian batsman in T20s.Since India won T20 World cup, almost in every match we see similar kind of pattern in batting.They start slowly and then batting collapse happens .I wonder why Indian players who are carry most experience of playing T20s in form of IPL have been struggling in this format for so long.

You are not alone in not caring for this format of the game. If you judge by the number of empty seats at Eden Gardens there were many who were not very interested. Batting collapse due to extravagant shots is what caused the loss for India. Cheers! Ram

All of my expectations went wrong in the match.It wasn't a pitch to score a big total which both captains admitted earlier. Then there wasn't no need to try for big hits in the initial overs when batting first.After getting first 10 overs a decent run rate keeping wickets and then accelerating the run rate was better tactics.If India had at least 30 runs more, England couldn't bat with easiness and play was certain to change. England deserves appreciations for retaining the No1 ranking in T20Is

I think Indian batsmen were guilty of throwing their wickets. Of course the wicket was a bit on the slower side. But our batsmen are very much used to playing on these wickets and should have batted more sensibly. Cheers! Ram

yes it is very bad news for us and indian team batting is really poor today .yusuf pathan done nothing with bat and ball he gave many runs in the bowling today is the bad day for pathan if India score 20-30 more runs then this match is interesting to watch.

Tinkering with the winning combination affected us. Both Pathan and Uthappa had a poor game. To be fair to them all Indian batsmen had a bad game though. Cheers! Ram
