    They did ok in this match, and not really any worse than the English top 7, but we can't get into a situation like in the first innings again. The tail isn't going to be able to bail them out like that very often.

    True but I'm with Holding. England are the better team, so prepare good pitches and we are more likely to win than them. Still recon 3-1 England.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    In fact before 2007/08 Harris was an all-rounder.

    But his bowling was awful back then. One of the most shocking turnarounds ever?
    5-0

    With one guy ill (not sure how badly) that isn't a bad effort in a tight test match.

    Does illness excuse him and give him another game?

    Nah only 3. Watson was close.

    Obvs Agar and Haddin got there too so 5 half centuries.

    Am I right in saying this is the first time since 1997 that England have gone into the 2nd Test 1-0 up?

    Hughes has to come up the order IMO. Criminally wasted at 6, he was almost stranded on about 25* in the 1st innings.

    Am I the only one who would genuinely not have Agar as clear-cut in the team for the second test? I'm 90% I'd include him, but his bowling is why he's in the team, and I wouldn't say he impressed. Wasn't horrible by any means.but certainly didn't make his mark with the ball.

    Putting him in as a top 6 bat is another argument altogether; possibly a better one tbh

    I think Lyon's bowling is better, because it's more polished, but not enough so to trump the advantages with the bat Agar provides imo.

    At present Lyon is a better bowler but given time and experience it would be no surprise to see Agar as a Dan Vettori clone in a way with 300+ test wickets and stacks of runs. He certainly has the basics, just lacks a little of what will only come from playing more. Seeing as Lyon is ordinary i'd stick with Agar.

    Yeah, as I say I'd stick with Agar. But it's certainly not something that should just be assumed.

    I'd pick Agar's 1-2 ordinary balls an over against Lyon's darts
    Current "Favourite XI" 1. Cook 2. Williamson 3. Sangakarra 4. Clarke* 5. DeVilliers+ 6. Chanderpaul 7. Jadeja 8.Broad 9.Johnson 10. Harris 11. Steyn

    reckon Agar will bowl better on quicker pitches with more bounce given how tall he is and the over spin he puts on the ball
