Used people as slaves to copy documents without allowing them to learn English, so they had no idea what they were doing

Funny difference: we taught French in all our colonial schools then the African-Algerian independentists took inspiration from our own Revolution :lol:

The British treated Indians WORSE than slaves

Slaves had a resale value and were often treated with a certain amount of care because of that

Slaves on plantations in the Southern States of America were housed, fed and received medical help

Indians had no value to the British and a great many died as Britain took over their country

Britain took Indians/Pakistanis to work for them in Africa - I doubt many wanted to be relocated

And when they had to flee parts of Africa, they lost everything they had worked for

They came here, received little or no support, left to die of starvation

But the Indians shared with each other and worked far harder than any English person would, which is why they own most local shops and Post Offices

Their children will be professionals

Cricket World Cup:
India thrash West Indies by 125 runs at Old Trafford

Highlights: India end Windies' World Cup
ICC Men's Cricket World Cup, Old Trafford, Manchester

India 268-7 (50 overs): Kohli 72, Dhoni 56*, Roach 3-36

West Indies 143 (34.2 overs): Ambris 31, Shami 4-16, Bumrah 2-9
India won by 125 runs :ymparty:

India moved a step closer to the World Cup semi-finals and ended West Indies' slim hopes of qualifying with a 125-run thrashing at Old Trafford.

West Indies, chasing 269 for victory, were dismantled by India, with pace bowler Mohammad Shami taking 4-16 and Jasprit Bumrah 2-9.

It was an underwhelming response from West Indies after they were economical with the ball and tidy in the field.

Virat Kohli made 72 as India worked hard in front of a vociferous crowd, and MS Dhoni's unbeaten 56, which saw him take 16 runs from the final over, propelled them to 268-7.

West Indies were ultimately dismissed for 143 with 94 balls remaining and will be left to rue a impatient batting performance on a slow pitch.

India are the only unbeaten team in the tournament and yesterday replaced England - their next opponents - at the top of the one-day rankings

They will head to Edgbaston on Sunday with plenty of confidence, knowing that victory will secure their semi-final berth and make England's task to qualify even more difficult.

England, beware

England might have played close attention to this match; they may need to beat both India on Sunday and then New Zealand to reach the semi-finals.

What will they have learnt? India's top order is as dynamic as ever but the middle is brittle. Kohli top-scored and made batting look easy, but those around him faltered. India have a long tail which England may be able to exploit.

KL Rahul was bowled by Jason Holder, caught in two minds; Vijay Shankar, who has struggled for runs at four, was undone by a delivery that moved off the seam and the dangerous Hardik Pandya sliced to cover after a flurry of shots.

While Kohli can manipulate the field and find singles, he has yet to make a century at this World Cup, something that will not be lost on him. He was in disbelief as he pulled Holder straight to the fielder at mid-wicket as India looked to accelerate.

While MS Dhoni provided an entertaining finish for the packed Old Trafford crowd - he hit two sixes and a four off the final over of the innings - he likes to take his time, and the singles lessened as his innings progressed. While he propelled India to a score that was ultimately more than enough, he can also limit them in the crucial moments.

The biggest concern for England will be the bowling. Mohammed Shami is accurate up top, while Jasprit Bumrah's unorthodox action and mix of paces is difficult to get away. An impatient Chris Gayle holed out early on, before Shai Hope was bowled attempting an expansive drive.

India's spinners were excellent, although they were helped by some poor shots from West Indies' batsmen. Wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav found turn and had Nicholas Pooran, trying to play aggressively, caught at long-off, while Yuzvendra Chahal also struck with Holder trying to thrash him over cover.

West Indies needed to play with patience against their bowlers; they needed to be smarter about their shot selection against the spin. It would do England well to take notice.

West Indies were disciplined with the ball. Holder had miserly figures of 2-33, including two maidens and the wicket of Kohli; Roach was equally effective with 3-36.

However, in the death overs, they were expensive. Shai Hope fluffed a stumping that would have dismissed Dhoni and Holder, having bowled himself out, ended up turning to Carlos Brathwaite to bowl three crucial overs. They disappeared for 33 runs.

Then with the bat, needing to go at just under six an over, West Indies crumbled.

Of the top five only Sunil Ambris, trapped on the crease by a Pandya off-cutter, could have claimed to have received a good delivery. The rest were caught needlessly trying to play big shots.

"They've got the skills. It's just a question of their temperament," former fast bowler Sir Curtly Ambrose told Test Match Special.

"They are not patient enough, whenever a bowler is on top of them they hit out and get out. That's not how cricket is played, you've got to respect the bowlers."

West Indies crushed Pakistan in their opening game of the World Cup. Since then, their fortunes have been reversed. Pakistan could yet qualify for the semi-finals; the Windies are out of contention.

'West Indies need to change their mentality' - what they said

West Indies captain Jason Holder: "We have let ourselves down significantly in this tournament.

"The bowlers had a reasonable campaign but our batting has been too inconsistent.

"I couldn't ask for more but we let ourselves down with the bat. This is our weakest format of the three."

Ex-West Indies pace bowler Sir Curtly Ambrose: "West Indies have a mindset that they are a power hitting team and when it's not working for them they can't manipulate the scores.

"They need to change their mentality and throw away this foolish notion. Unless they change that notion they will never be a force to reckon with.

"As coaches you can preach to the players but once they are in the middle, they do what they want to do."

India captain Virat Kohli: "We have players who play instinctive cricket and MS Dhoni is one guy in the middle who knows what a par score is on this pitch.

"He can play calculated cricket, that's his strength, and he finds a way of winning. He is a legend of the game.

"We feel we can win from any situation."

England thrash Australia to
reach Cricket World Cup final

It is England who will face New Zealand in Sunday’s Cricket World Cup final at Lord’s, thus guaranteeing the tournament its sixth different winner, and first new one since 1996. As sweetly for England, Australia are out – and with a bang. Their 223 was chased down with just two wickets lost and 107 balls to spare

If the first semi-final was an instant classic, this was a mere evisceration. There were few positives to be taken for Australia in their first ever World Cup semi-final defeat: Steve Smith scored a few runs, Mitchell Starc took one wicket (while going at eight an over) and thus reached 27 wickets for the tournament, the most at a World Cup ever.

With the Ashes coming, they do not even get to go home yet. Those Ashes start here, where England have won 11 straight matches and they have not won since 2001.

There were just two clouds for England, both regarding their brilliant opening pair, Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow. In the course of their stand of 124, their 11th over 100 in 32 innings, Bairstow hurt his groin.

When he was dismissed for 34, he wrongly reviewed, meaning Roy was left stranded when given out caught behind pulling. He had got nowhere near the ball, and let the umpire know. He needs three demerit points to miss the final; even in cricket it is hard to see that happening but he has a nervous few hours ahead.

By then, Roy had done his bit. This was a stunning knock, full of typically authoritative drives and remarkable sixes. Steve Smith came on and became the second spinner to be for three successive sixes by Roy at this tournament.

The third, said Warwickshire, was the first to make it to the top tier in a competitive match here.

That was not even his most remarkable shot; that came off Starc, over the fielder at fine-leg, in just the sixth over. When Nathan Lyon came on, he was sent back over his head for six too.

England were not quite on it from ball one – which David Warner eased through the covers – but they were not far behind. Jofra Archer pinned Aaron Finch in front, and with him went Australia’s review.

Warner got in a horrible tangle to Chris Woakes and was caught at second slip, and with him went plenty of boos. Peter Handscomb could even been out first ball but survived on review. He never looked likely to last long, and Woakes soon cleaned him up.

Australia were 14 for three, and spectators were still taking their seats.

Alex Carey joined Smith and they put on a very fine 103 to unsettle England. Smith soaked up dots, picked gaps and absorbed the boos. Carey was smacked in the grille by Archer – catching the helmet on the way down – but, bandaged up, and carried on.

When he attempted to his first shot in anger, he holed out to Adil Rashid. He soon had Marcus Stoinis first ball.

Glenn Maxwell, who just about retained his place, fizzed momentarily, before Archer’s slower ball fooled him. Rashid was on hand to dismiss Pat Cummins promptly and cap a superb showing.

After some brief Smith-Starc fun, Woakes’s final spell finished Australia off in a hurry. Jos Buttler pulled off an outrageous direct hit – through Smith’s legs – to run him out, then Starc was caught behind heaving.

The chase was all about Roy. From the moment he planted Starc away for six, England looked happy and confidently on their way.

Smith bowled the 16th over, which told you everything you needed to know. Bairstow went with a whimper, and Roy with a bang, but the damage was done. Joe Root and Eoin Morgan enjoyed their glorified net as much as the Edgbaston crowd did dancing in the rain. England are off to Lord’s.
