If it was India's turn in 2011, then 2012 was for England. The Test champions got thrashed by Pakistan 0-3 at the very beginning of the year. They failed to cross 350 in a single innings in that series and 72 all down was their nadir.
If that could be brushed aside because they are always suspect against spin, then the 0-2 defeat at home to South Africa was far more serious.
The Indian Test tour has revived them somewhat as India continues to fall failing to win a Test series even on Indian soil against them.
