In the week that India reacted to their Test series defeat to England by shaking up their coaching staff, Lycamobile ambassador Farokh Engineer remembers a time when there were 'no recognised coaches'.
Following India's appalling series defeat the BCCI has taken a small number of measures. These changes are purely delusional and lack the competence to avoid similar humiliations in the future, writes Darshan Walawalkar.
The Indian cricket board (BCCI) have responded to their 3-1 Test series defeat to England by adding Ravi Shastri, Sanjay Bangar, Bharat Aran and R Sridhar to their coaching team for the limited overs series.
What can I say after another dreadful day for India? They've thrown in the towel, they've embarrassed themselves and they have been absolutely pathetic by losing in three days - twice. It's diabolical.
I am very disappointed with how India have performed because I was expecting them to put up a far better fight and show England what Indian cricket is all about but unfortunately it just hasn't materialised.
We seem to be saying it a lot this summer, but this was another disappointing day for India after being bowled out for just 148. They just lack the technique to bat in England and they lack the application as well.
