The longer this goes on the more embarrassing it is for India's top order.

2-1 job done
A very, very satisfying series win.
Lovely to see 2 world class england spinners doing the business on the subcontinent.
Yup. Shame the last game was pretty poor but a superb result for England.
On the basis that Dhoni asked for raging bunsens for the second and third tests, only to get his arse handed back to him by Swann and Monty, the lord alone knows what he asked for for the fourth test! But i sure as hell hope that wasn't what he'd wanted, and that we don't see many surfaces like that again. I can't remember a more turgid test match.
I know we've been spoilt in recent years by great games and run rates in excess of 4, but 1008 runs for 23 wickets (several of which were wrong umpiring decisions) at an overall rate of 2.3 rpo. As David Lloyd said yesterday on the TV - if that was taking place outside my front window I'd draw the curtains.
Still - great recovery from one down, great series win, and made the Indians that suggested 4-0 in england was a fluke and we'd get done the same in india look very sheepish now.
