England v India series review now on Edges & Sledges

India head home

India finally head home after finishing their tour of England.

It’s been a long tour and while 4-1 in the tests was a disappointing scoreline, India can leave with their heads held high.

There is still work to do but plenty of positives from the series – the seam bowlers were brilliant, slip catching was decent, Chepu’s hundred at Southampton and Pant and Rahul scoring hundreds at Oval. We could go on but what we really loved was Virat Kohli proving to everyone he is the greatest batsman on the planet at the moment. He may not have got his hundred at Lords but it was on this blog that we first said in 2016 that he would go on to conquer England.

Even more importantly, we were really glad to see that India were competitive in all the test matches (save where the conditions were massively against them in at Lords). This is a huge improvement from 2014 where we were completely rolled over after the famous Lords win.

Edges & Sledges

So this week we have something a little different on our Edges & Sledges podcast. We were invited by James Buttler of the fantastic Cricket Badger Radio Show Podcast to do a joint show all about England and India and we jumped at the opportunity! We think you’ll find it pretty interesting to see how English fans viewed the series despite winning the test series 4-1.

We had a lovely chat with James about the state of Indian cricket, English cricket, test cricket generally and looked ahead to the Asia Cup, India’s tour of Australia and England’s tour of Sri Lanka. Of course, we also spoke about the two captains, Virat Kohli’s batting, Alastair Cook’s retirement, Jimmy Anderson’s record and Sam Curran’s brilliance. There’s lots more on the podcast itself so please have a listen when you get a second. You know where to find the latest episode of Edges & Sledges – if not, you can take your pick of the platforms we are on – iTunes , Google Play , YouTube, Anchor, Overcast, Pocket Casts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Breaker, Castbox, Podbean, Radiopublic, Sticher and Tune in Radio.

Some really big moves on the fantasy front with the big guns finally coming into their own – the Universe Boss, Watto and ABdV have all joined the IPL party.

Our latest podcast is live on iTunesAnchor or PocketCasts for Android and here is a link to YouTube video of Episode 8.

Recap

To recap the main performances of the week:

KXIP v CSK: KXIP won by 4 runs despite a late charge by MSD on one leg. Chris Gayle was the man of the match for his 63 runs, announcing his return to the IPL.

KKR v DD: KKR won by 71 runs. More depression for DD fans. Rana and Russell demolish the DD bowlers.

MI v RCB: Rohit’s 94 overcame Kohli’s 92 not out. Mumbai Indians finally got some points on the board.

RR v KKR: Nitish Rana again came to the party to take KKR to a 7 wicket win.

KXIP v SRH: The Gaylestorm (104) handed the Sunrisers their first loss of the IPL 2018. Gayle announced that Virender Sehwag had saved the IPL by picking him in the auction. Sehwag promptly confirmed this on Twitter. Rab ne bana di jodi!

CSK v RR: Watto smashed a ton as well just to show he’s still got it. RR fell short by 64 runs.

KKR v KXIP: Another Gayle/Rahul demolition job to breach KKR’s fortress at Eden.

RCB v DD: When AB is flying, no one can catch him. After a great innings by Pant, AB almost single handedly made sure that DD fans had to endure yet another loss. Gambhir must be scratching his head wondering how a team that looks so good on paper is sitting at the bottom of the table.

To makes sure you catch us next week, make sure you subscribe to the YouTube channel and the podcast.
