After India's 4-0 series loss to England at Oval today.Rahul Dravid happens to be the highest Indian run getter in the series with 461 runs which included three test centuries.Three test centuries came at Lords,Edgbaston and Oval.4 years ago an Indian Team led by Rahul Dravid had won here on England.

RD commented that England were the better side of the two and they deserved the win.

England are deservedly the No 1 ranked side in the world. This is one of the best sides I have played against who have all their key areas well covered. We should have played a lot better as we did expect a tough series

Really sad with the humiliating loss we had in the test series.Now it is time to salvage some pride by winning the ODI series.

Sachin's Century of Centuries might happen today

Sachin Tendulkar
There is every single chance that the little master would go on to hit his century of centuries today at the oval.At close of play yesterday the 4th day of the test match Sachin Tendulkar was notout on 35 and was looking to be in top form.Amit Mishra was at the other end making his contribution of 8runs.

Rahul Dravid yesterday said he wish Sachin all the best today.We also wish the Little master all the very best.

Rahul Dravid
Rahul Dravid again stands tall as the rest of the indian batting order fails cheaply.This is his third test hundred in the series and sadly all three might go in vain.India's started the fourth day with 103/5 with Dhoni and Dravid on the field.Dravid was 57 notout at the start of play.Dhoni fell at 137/6.Then came Amit Mishra who gave Dravid company and got out at 224/7 after playing a very good knock of 43.The duo put almost 90runs for the sixth wicket.

We congragulate Rahul Dravid on the test century and hope that the rest of the team performs well in the future.

Alistair Cook
India had a very humiliating defeat when India lost to England by an Innings and 242 runs.When the Indian batting order failed miserably to a very strong and confident England side lead by Andrew Strauss.It was Alistair Cook's 294 that paved way for England's win.We congratulate the England side on their victory and are hoping and praying that the Indian team bounces back to form soon.

Since I had not been picked for one-day cricket for the last two years, I was obviously a little surprised,To be honest, because I had not been picked, I had not informed the selectors or the board of my desire to solely focus on Test cricket.

At the end of this one-day series, I would like to announce my retirement from one-day and Twenty20 cricket and concentrate only on Test cricket. I am committed, as always to give my best to India in this one-day series and obviously the Test series that follows.
