Trent Bridge humiliation: Was Dhoni grandstanding?

A spineless India 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.

TIMES NOW's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami debates the issue with Bishen Singh Bedi, Former Indian Captain; Boria Majumdar, Cricket Historian; Arun Lal, Former Indian Cricketer; Atul Wasan, Former Indian Cricketer and Sanjay Jha.
