But we are proud to have beaten a very good India side. We have improved in leaps and bounds and we hope to take this form into the Champions Trophy.
Its definitely not an ideal start to have had going into the Test matches. He's such a good player, and he was probably our best batsman on occasion, so it's a big blow.
Andrew's a true sporting hero. I'm very lucky to be his captain.
You have to keep building and it's so important we keep getting young players pushing the team and making sure everybody stays honest,
We have a good idea of what they're going to come up with, we've got a lot of footage and a lot of players have played against them.
Marcus left the tour, had a few problems and an illness, now let's look forward.
The real test will come when I start running, twisting and bowling but I am confident I will be on the plane for India next month.
On our last tour of India, we came close to winning.
I'm baffled by the international standard of cricket
This is so special to come to the palace, meeting the Queen here and being here with all the rest of the boys. She was saying she watched the series avidly - but not all the time, because it all got too tense for her and was a bit nerve-wracking. It is fantastic to be here for the whole side.
We have been on the ropes for three games and the final knock-out blow was today. You can only keep taking so many punches, but we could not withstand any more.
I fully expected two more hard days of cricket, but I said before the match that it needed a couple of magical performances and, thankfully for us, Steve produced one today.
I don't think anyone who watched the previous matches would have come today and expected England to stroll to 130,
It's a bit of a lottery but we played some good cricket. Today was our day. I don't think it will have any impact on the five-day matches to come.
Thoughts of going home won't be taking over my thoughts I can assure you. We have a travel day tomorrow and prepare on Tuesday for Wednesday's match. It was a poor performance and we have to lift ourselves for the next one.
I'm sure there will come a stage where the players would like to hear a different voice and like to have a different direction. I'll stay for as long as they want me.
I had a light net today to test out the knee but it is still too early to say whether the injection has had an effect and we will just have to wait and see how it responds over the next 48 hours.
She just said she'd been watching the Ashes and she couldn't watch it all because it got too nerve-wracking, and I said so it was for us as well.
It is important, with winter approaching, that the plight of those needing blankets and tents in the earthquake zone is not forgotten,
Whether or not he was sent in by their coach I'm not too sure. But I just call him 'the witness' now and I don't think he likes it.
I'm confident. I believe I've done the right work at home. Hopefully it will go well and I will score a few runs and take it from there.
I suppose he has the chance to kind of shove it down our throats and prove us wrong to drop him,
We've not won here for 21 years, that should come as an incentive to the boys.
People say to stay in the same seat but we were losing that many wickets there was not a right seat to be in,
It's a great opportunity for the three guys who haven't played much Test cricket.
