When India won the match in Mohali it was a half page story, whereas today it was 4 page story almost in all leading news papers. Libero is right that we shouldn't listen to any english papers on sports stories in England especially CRICKET.
What I would be interested in is what the other cricketing nations are making of the India defeat. I don't think that England were that good during the series and the bowling averages for the regulars bar Hoggard were not that good.
libero & anonymous: Newspapers obviously need to sell in their local markets. Imagine a newspaper in London with the sports headlines featuring a Ranji Trophy match. The aim was to put up a post linking to various points of view, myopic as they may seem to you. For what it is worth, libero, Justin Langer reckons that respect for England is as high as ever.
geoff: I could argue with you about "full-strength Indian side" :) But yes, India was quite pathetic! I hope the players, administration & fans aren't in some state of denial.
