they thoroughly deserve that victory they’ve had to fight very hard for it over five days as you said england were favourites going into today an absolutely brilliant performance from india that is going to hurt england seriously though isn’t it yeah it is a and rightly so i mean england were favorites uh they let things slip this morning that hour before lunch and then another top order collapse so those two wickets three wickets falling early put a huge amount of pressure on the middle order and in the end they just india just had enough overs to bowl them out but it was an outstanding performance by their fast bowlers as i said on a pitch that wasn’t giving them a lot of help at the back end of the match there competitive game wasn’t it to put it david feisty as you expect every series with india and in particular virat kohli is feisty and uh as the the match was on the line you expected nothing else but um it’s been five brilliant days of test screen in fact it’s been ten brilliant days of test crew over the first two test matches uh india thoroughly deserved to be one up dk you can come in and join us on this particular conversation congratulations i mean that was just an amazing bowling performance we’ll come on to the batting but that with the ball was special oh most definitely 60 overs they had to get joe root out but after that butler showed some real steely dissolved but still finding a way to get him at the end just an outstanding bowling performance every one of them got a wicket what will that mean to india the manner of that victory given where they were at the start of the day the strength of the team comes from these kind of adverse situations that they seem to be facing at a lot of times but they seem to find ways to come back in this game yesterday evening when i said maybe i would love for india to win it’s very unbelievable at that stage but you know today for them to make it happen is just fabulous i mean england should should they not have found a way to at least bat out those overs i mean this is a pitch where the tail enders of india batted for nearly a session yeah but at some stage if you keep being two or three down for nothing it’s going to come back to haunt you and yes there were two good balls to get rid of burns and sibley but of course joe roots under pressure hamid’s under pressure and then the middle order johnny bestow as well so uh you know that you just can’t keep doing that time after time india were exceptional there were times where england looked like they were just going to get out of jail there but in the end you have to say that india deserved it they did enough to win and as as you said before england are going to be absolutely bruised and battered as a result of that what are they going to do at the top of the order though they’ve already made one change they’ve taken zach crawley out of the firing line to bring in hamid both openers went without scoring now and as you say that just puts immense pressure on the middle order sean of ben stokes and root has got to do everything well i think it might be the time to bring dom sibley out of the firing line he’s looked out of touch and he’s going in though well i think ollie pope is probably going to come back in i mean he’s been in and around the squad but of course is it right for him to be batting in the top three so that’s not an easy solution uh a lot of problems for england no doubt about that if they got away with this again we might have been able to paper over those cracks but not anymore
