Who has even said the word dustbowl? Again, its not black and white. If a pitch isn't a dustbowl in India its not automatically flat.
This is turning and was turning on day 1. Swann got 4 wickets against the Indian batting lineup on day 1. That is proof its turning more than usual and can be difficult to bat on.
