Roll on Trent Bridge
England's cricketers have no time to reflect on their frustrations at Lord's.
They must instead switch their attention to the impending second Test at Nottingham, starting on Friday, and remind themselves that they did an excellent job in the first match of the series.
In particular, the bowlers were terrific.
Bereft of any of the Ashes “big guns”, and largely written off as being too green to take on India's ultra-experienced batsmen, they reduced them to 201 and 282-9 before cruelly being denied victory.
But rather than wail with indignation or gnash their teeth with frustration - who to blame, umpire Steve Bucknor for failing to give Sree Santh out lbw to Monty Panesar? The weather? - now they must produce another barnstorming performance at Trent Bridge. They may not get as much help from conditions. But the ball will swing provided there is overhead assistance, and given the summer we have had so far one can barely expect wall-to-wall sunshine for five days.
If there is any concern, it will be among the batsmen, who relied too heavily on Andrew Strauss's 96 on day one and Kevin Pietersen's 134 on day four.
India, having got out of jail at Lord's, may get some sort of psychological boost.
But worries will remain that their big-name performers are not at the top of their form at the moment.
Despite the agonies it caused the home supporters, the climax of the Lord's Test had everything.
Impending rain clouds gathered, the light faded fast, and wickets tumbled - but not quite quickly enough.
There was all the familiar tension we had experienced at the climax of three Tests in the epic 2005 Ashes series.
And perhaps some of the sport's more itinerant observers - put off by the terrible World Cup and some one-sided matches both in Australia over the winter and recently against West Indies - might have caught the cricket bug again.
Mahendra Dhoni is clearly going to be the Indian batsman to watch in the remainder of the Tests, and particularly the exhausting one-day series - which takes in seven matches.
It is not that he is necessarily going to be the heaviest scorer - and there will certainly be occasions when he does not enjoy the level of fortune he did on Monday.
But he is India's Pietersen, a born entertainer blessed with idiosyncratic shots. One Indian writer described his innings as "heroic".
And with age beginning to take its toll on Sachin Tendulkar - perhaps even Rahul Dravid - Dhoni could prove to be the man England's bowlers most want to take on.
What will make future jousts all the more absorbing will be that Jimmy Anderson, Monty Panesar and co will fancy their chances against him because of the risks he likes to take.
Roll on Trent Bridge.
