It does not take much analysis to predict that India will lose in this tour. Boycott can add more value by predicting how England will fare in India and SL when they visit there. It will be interesting to hear his opinion and his predictions considering that English players are 'fair weather' players who do well in their home weather and English bowling friendly custom-made picthes.

It takes dignity and courage to accept one's own mistake ... Manjrekar, Shastri and Gavaskar don't have it ... India were outplayed in every department ... planning and preparation is part of the game ... the lack of which makes India the most undeserving #1 team ... True champions like Australia and West indies were capable of beating teams without key players ... India will never be true champions until they develop a threatening bowling attack instead of finding excuses like "jealousy" "under preparation" and "injuries"
