Lots of away fans at Cardiff for the 2nd T20, long way to come from India in such numbers.


Jake Ball again, what do the selectors see in him :thdn: (go prove me wrong and get 5-10 now!)

Showed a pair of bollox going after the bowler in that final over. Fair play to him. :thup:

In my experience, you’re unlikely to meet a more one eyed bunch of supporters in any sport, anywhere than an Indian cricket fan. Possibly red scouse run them close.

Well we certainly got our arses handed to us yesterday!

Some of our batsmen are really struggling to read the spinners, can see why, as they had some video footage of showing where the hand/ball for different deliveries is, in slow mo you can see it quite clearly, at full speed, it's not the easiest to read! Some real quality bowling in fairness to the Indians, they are not too shabby with the bat either.

Proper good test for us this!

Another heavy defeat, however this time it is the Indian's that take a beating. One of the strangest ODI innings I've ever seen from Dhoni

In five games (3 T20 and 2 ODI) they have all been heavy defeats one way or the other.

I've seen this before from the Indians. But that was in a test match. Disgraceful way to conduct themselves when the game was running away from them. Like a spoilt child all because they wasn't winning.
