Not so colorful villains

The new kings

England crushed the depleted Australians in their own country and now the Brits have done the same to India at the home of cricket. It was twelve years ago when India were defeated in every match of the series. The major difference now is that they started the first match while being ranked as the best team on Earth.

Now, they're down to the third position. It has been a hard, humiliating four matches. The only man unscathed is the legendary Rahul Dravid and Tendulkar still waits for his 100th 100.

Interestingly, a senior Indian cricketer once pin-pointed what differentiated Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid from the rest. "They will murder you when they are on top of the game and score big hundreds with ease. But it is when they are down and things are not going well, even then they can last for three hours. The rest just wilt without a spine." That is the difference.

So true. The stunning loss of seven wickets at the end is proof enough.
