Good win for England, apparently it’s the first time since the 50’s they’ve won 4 away Tests in a row.

Fantastic win for India against the Aussies at The Gabba ( first time they’ve lost a game there since 1988 ) Pant MOTM. For all that Kohli is a brilliant cricketer India are a better team without him.

What a great series and congrats to India, they played smart cricket especially in the last two test. For those who want 4 day test you would not have got this result, 5 day test cricket must stay or we will have more draws and not very good ones. After being bowled out for 36 and Kohli on his way not many would have picked this result. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Jimmy Anderson has just booked an Ashes place with his six for. What happens when Jimmy and Stuart Broad retire they will be a very hard act to follow ?

I wasn't a bad bowler but I was a hopeless batsman. However, I couldn't do much worse than the current England openers.
I once played against Don Revie.
