India started the series on a huge win as they beat Sri Lanka by 169 runs yesterday. The Lankans had won the toss and decided that it would be a good idea to put the Indian team up to bat first.

The Indian innings started out slowly with openers Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane being extremely vigil and safe on the pitch. In fact, at the end of 10 overs, India stood at just 43/0. But as the openers got more comfortable in the crease, their shots started free flowing. And after that what Dhawan and Rahane did can only be described as a rampage.

India has always had it tough when it comes to fast bowlers. Genuine Indian pacers are a rare breed. Those who manage to retain their pace tend to suffer from a plethora of injuries. And the rest eventually tend to tone-down their pace for accuracy. The term ‘Indian fast bowler’ seemed to have lost its meaning.

England's 266 run win at Southampton exposed India's weaknesses. Strange as it may sound, Ishant Sharma's absence was felt with Bhuvneshwar having to bowl below his best, Mohammed Shami letting the pressure off with poor lengths and Pankaj Singh unfortunate to have chances off his bowling dropped or missed. With no one to enforce pace on Alastair Cook and push him back, he played out of his crease to counter Bhuvneshwar's swing and once he found his gears, the rest of the English line up piled on the runs against a tiring attack bereft of ideas.
