The last time England was beaten so badly on any of their tour, was back during their whitewash at the Ashes, which ensured that several careers of different Test players were effectively ended, such as the likes of Jonathan Trott, Kevin Pietersen and Graeme Swann.
Their current 3-0 whitewash in their fourth Test Indian series at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai has been one of their most terrible so far, and has also seen the Indian squad and team break a lot of records.
However, the England Cricket Team might still have a last shot at redemption when they meet India in the Final test of the Indian series to be played at Chennai by Friday.
And it would not be an easy one for them considering ViratKohli, who will be hoping to score his fourth double century of the year, and equal Michael Clarke’s record, while still going ahead to break some more records.
This series has rocked Alastair Cook’s captaincy the most, raising a lot of speculations and questions on his ability to lead the team
However, the reason for their loss is not far-fetched. England had gone up to India without a spin department or even a settled top half of their batting line.
Their batting kept collapsing and their spin bowlers were the second best and not what should have been fielded against a capable Indian side.
However, for Cook, it might be the end of the road for him as the captain of the team as the end of the test series in India may see him hand over to someone else.
And at the moment, Joe Root seems to be the most capable hand to take over from Cook. For England, it is not the end of the road as they can come out from this defeat, and bounce back even stronger.
