    India, apparently the pitch was actually starting to flatten out after the break up of the first couple of days.

    It's just pure speculation like 90% of the threads, which is great.

    Gillespie played 165 balls....that was a major reason for the slow rate of scoring.

    As Sehwag showed , run making on that pitch was nowhere near as difficult as the Aussies made it seem ( they were batting to save the match, remember )

    right. the difference in opinion from the guy on the field and the one sitting out. shows the guy had a positive outlook to the result and had not given up on the match at that time...

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.
