    Back to back defeats of indian cricket team

    India's tour of England in 2011 has been a total disaster so far. India lost the 4 test matches in a large margin. The only Twenty20 match between the sides also resulted in a failure for India.
    The defeat in 4 test matches made Indian lose the first rank in Test teams. India is now 3rd in the current ranking. India went to England after winning the World cup tournament in 2011. The reason for this total defeat for India in the matches is unknown now. Team suffered a little injury but the total line up of the team was healthy. All main stars were present in the team as well. Only Rahul Dravid managed to gather some runs. He scored 3 centuries in the tournament. Apart from that India was really no where near the Champion standards.
    England clinched the Test series and got the First rank in Test matches. Can you discuss the reasons for failure of India in these matches.

    Thanks in advance

    I think the major cause was injury and out of form of main players. Rahul Dravid was the only one who gain some scores during the test. After two test matches Virendra Sehwag came. We think he might save India. But nope.
    Yesterday ODI with England gave some expectations of winning of our team. But rain cheated,the match was abandoned due to heavy rain. Still hopes for the best Indian cricket because Partiv Patel(95) and Virat Kohli(55)'s half century is an achievement. And England was struggling as they lose 2 for 27 runs (7.2 overs)..
