Indian fans thought that all is going to be well after the historic victory of the Indian team over the English team at Lords but alas that victory could only live up to the next test as India was crushed by the English team at Southampton in a massive defeat.
Indians look to be jolted by series of players hitting bad form in the middle of the tour and certain other players who had been performing well hit by injuries. With the likes of Ishant Sharma and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar possibly out of the next test India will face a major dilemma of replacing their top bowlers in this series with Mohammad Shami already underperforming and Pankaj Singh not looking good enough to be wicket taker.
England on the other hand will be on cloud seven going into the next test as all their top players are back in form and the youngster already doing pretty well. They look pretty set to thump another defeat on the Indians until and unless India has something left up their sleeves.
With the series tied down at 1-1 and both the teams in completely opposite frame of mind it looks like the Indian team has to perform out of their skin to deliver a good result. This is going to be another exciting game of cricket.
