SOUTHAMPTON: It is a broken heart that will not be easy to deal with. The cherished Indian dream of organizing one of the biggest comebacks in cricket's modern history could be so easily fulfilled, but some flabby batting saw Virat Kohli's men crashing on another series loss away from home.

After losing 60 runs here on a burning Sunday, India now runs the fifties series 1-3 and the Oval game is only academic in a few days.

"We have the best pace attack in the history of Indian cricket," said Ravi Shastri once. What he forgot to mention that without his captain Virat Kohli, this is probably one of the weakest store lineups that India had ever outside the subcontinent.

Shastri had during one morning
Sky Sports interview that the pitch conditions at Ageas Bowl, which & # 39; spin and reverse swing & # 39; made possible, perfect for his team to pursue a goal in the 250-plus region. The bowlers did exactly that and gave the batsman a target of 246 to run backwards to make the series 2-2. But it is generally known that it is necessary to make contributions from more than one or two batsmen in order to achieve such a goal.

But the Indian top order, which has not developed in this series, again staggered against James Anderson and Stuart Broad. While KL Rahul (0) could claim that the ball was low when he was thrown, experts claimed he should have been on the front foot. Shikhar Dhawan (17) is not good against the moving ball and it was always a matter of time that he would throw someone to the skid. But the big wicket was from the first innings centurion Cheteshwar Pujara. Much depended on his presence, but he failed once again to catch a ball that swung in from Anderson, leg-by-catch.

22-3 meant that the battle would go uphill, but it was at this time that Kohli (58) and Ajinkya Rahane (51) decided to fight against it. Yes, Kohli was fortunate not to have been thrown at 10 by the third referee outside the pivot, Moeen Ali, but it was his class that seemed afterwards.

While handling the swing of Broad, Anderson and Sam Curran with a beautiful judgment of where his off-stump was, he skilfully used the depth of the fold to deal with the spinners. Rahane also seemed to be the best of its kind and in the course of their 101-run collaboration there was hope.

But it was Moeen (4-71), the hero of England with the ball against India, also in 2014, who finished it. The ball jumped from the rough, grabbed Kohli's glove and looped to a forward short leg, and one could see that the end was near. While the likes of Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant still do not have the maturity to deal with a pressure situation and were fired shortly afterwards, Moeen pushed Rahane back in the fold and brought it to him.

"It's not that we played badly, but there were certain stages in which we should have done better – probably in the first innings, but England was definitely the better match and they deserved to win," said Kohli.

That was certain and when Sam Curran R rejected Ashwin, it underlined that the number one test team is still not good enough to win a meaningful sequence outside the subcontinent.
