Trent Bridge humiliation: Was Dhoni grandstanding?
A spineless India on Monday (August 1) crashed to one of their heaviest defeats in terms of runs in the lop-sided second cricket Test against England, who have now become serious contenders for the world number one tag by taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. Set a daunting target of 478 for victory, India's famed batting line-up collapsed like a pack of cards to be bundled out for 158, losing the game by a humiliating 319 runs with an entire day to spare. The Indians had to blame themselves for the drubbing as they allowed the hosts to wriggle out of a tight situation on the opening day and then frittered away a good position while batting in the first innings. From then, the visitors could never really get back into the game.
