That was the most enjoyable test match I've watched for years. Hopefully Stokes doesn't get banged up and miss the rest of the series. We're only an opener, a middle order, a world-class spinner and a genuine quickie away from being a decent side again.

I played my part in that victory by backing India at 8/15 shortly before their 3rd wicket fell yesterday.

Watching Boycott and Tavare was more f@ckin entertaining than watching Pompey[V]

Ha ha yes indeed. The bowlers were outstanding and Kholi the only Indian batsman who made a go of it. But what a go.

England have some players who have to prove they’re test standard. India have some players who need a kick.

Sam Curran was a breath of fresh air. But they need to get the batsmen playing four day cricket and only pick the ones who can score big hundreds regularly, completely ignore what they score in 1 day stuff.

The problem is they do pick the best players from the 4 day game (or at least have done in the past couple of years). But they come in, struggle and are immediately under pressure. The likes of malan, jennings, ballance, vince, Robson and hameed had all done well in the longer format for their countries but just don't seem to be able to do it for england. People call for cook to be dropped because he's not scoring as much as he used too, but we haven't replaced his partner yet. How are we meant to replace cook too!

India will get better at dealing with the conditions as the series goes on. It might be tight.

Best bowling attack we have had for some while. We just need to find some quality youngsters who can bat.

Good for test cricket that it was such a good match. It won't stop people sayong its futures under threat like the FA Cup. It annoys me because I'm not sure it's actually true, just a cliche people say without any grounding.

Can't agree here, this is currently done and there is such a massive gap between the standard of the English County Championship and test cricket that they struggle.

I would be picking based on ability and that alone. My team would be something like..

Cook
Jennings
Vince
Root
Bairstow
Stokes
Buttler
Curran
Rashid
Broad
Anderson

Test cricket like that is fantastic entertainment and tension. Prefer it to 2 teams knocking up several hundred each. It's proper sport. It's not often it is more entertaining than Pompey but this was one time.
