    The tail is the difference: Breakdown - England's Top Order vs India's Top Order

    I'm collecting stats till spot of wicket keepers; here are the results:

    2nd Test -
    ENG
    32 + 2 + 4 + 29 + 31 + 0 + 1 = 99
    16 + 5 + 159 + 63 + 70 + 73 + 2 = 388

    IND
    0 + 117 + 54 + 16 + 12 + 62 + 5 = 266
    3 + 6 + 4 + 56 + 1 + 8 + 0 = 78


    1st Test -
    ENG
    22 + 12 + 70 + 202 + 45 + 0 + 71 = 422
    32 + 1 + 22 + 1 + 0 + 19 + 103 = 178

    IND
    49 + 15 + 103 + 34 + 10 + 0 + 28 = 239
    12 + 36 + 56 + 22 + 12 + 78 + 16 = 232

    Grand Total:
    ENG: 1087
    IND: 815

    --- Update ---

    If you ignore India's 2nd innings in 2nd test, the runs scored by top 7 are almost the same. The tail is the difference!

    Completely true we had Swann at No 10. He opens the batting for his county in one dayers. India's tale is decent but they struggle against the fast bouncy pitches and I don't think they fancy the short stuff to much. Bresnan is a proper batsmen he looks so solid when he bats.
    Playing left arm spin better than the national side, since the age of 12
    Kallis a minnow basher you say?

    ^ i agree the tail seems to have trouble on the pitches. maybe they can regroup for the next test.
