India are so bad because they are good in that BS IPL. This Team India is IPL servant and completely unfit and useless to play International Cricket or Test Cricket. IPL has taken betting to highest level. IPL is not a Cricketing event it is a worst commerical event. Team India and BCCI is completely focussed on IPL. Because of IPL, Team India is losing skill, inspiration, motivation and fitness to play Test Cricket. These curators, coaches and BCCI officials are working for IPL growth rather than Cricket growth. Until IPL is thrashed, Team India is not going to perform well in other tournaments. IPL is completely meaningless and obsolete Tournament. Test, ODI & T20 Cricket is great to watch between Countries unlike IPL Teams which look like clubs. Test Cricket is ultimate to watch on sportive pitches. But IPL is making these pitches Lifeless.

India will lose this series 4-0, and peoples should understand that luck won't favor's all the time(Dhoni). Indian batsmen are weak in playing short balls except senior players. they won't bounce back in future in all overseas... Australia always be the Mighty Australians..

Let's go down a bit down the memory lane. Before the last England tour, When India played last in England, they won the series. When they last played in South Africa they drew the series. When they last played in Australia, they drew the series. So definitely India being number 1 test team was not a Myth. We never had any illusions that they were world beaters but they were better than other teams in that period. By the way how many Australian, S.A and England teams have won in the sub continent. May be winning in sub continent is not required for test ranking, Right Mate? Like most of the other Indian fans, I'm extremely disappointed at the way they suck right now. Hope they put a better performance in the coming matches.
