I always think spinning all rounders are "FAKES". England problem is samit patel , he is no spinner and no batsman either. Kinda bits and pieces player. Major problem for me is always Ian bell. When he plays strokes very pleasing but he gets out in bad time so many times before. He is not consistent. Without Trott in the middle held the inning , england is no good. They lacks the meat in middle. They can fight with their bowlers but their problem in this ODI is they do not have that glue. KP either open or bat 4th. They need to find a Builder/Grinder for number 3 spot. Until then england has no chance. Also they really have to find a fast bowling all rounder. Broad is not all rounder either. If you want to be great you had to have that X factor all rounder. In india if you want to beat india you really need one super fast bowler. England lacks that. You can get rid of most indian batsman with real fast bowler. Dhoni is nothing against real fast ball outside off stump.
