    Just like he chases balls on slow pitches all the time right?

    Wait hang on, he's got hundreds, double hundreds and even a triple hundred on pitches like these.

    Look, I feel for Gambhir, and Sehwag may well fail in this test in both innings, but you have to look at it from their view. That middle order looks very good, Sehwag coming in when the ball is old could be deadly.

    I am almost afraid to say this - but this pitch looks Indian. Who is the groundskeeper, we need to send him a thank you card.

    But your talking like Gambhir isn't a good batsman for these kind of pitches. He just came out of domestic Cricket in the form of his life.

    Let's wait until we win the match, shall we?

    They just need to go to lunch unscathed. The commentators are talking about run rate, but 2.57 is a perfectly acceptable run rate at this point.

    Sehwag is more proven than Gambhir at the highest level. I'm a huge Gambhir fan, but Sehwag is a key member of the Indian test side and he has a good chance of getting back into form on such a pitch. That said, Karthik having a good technique probably helped them make the decision to retain Sehwag.

    If Sehwag doesn't do anything here today, and still manages to be a part of the team in the next tour, I will be very disappointed in the selectors.

    Before this test, we've had opening partnerships of 14, 20, 5 and 14 ... for a grand total of 53.

    That's right, we've just eclipsed that in one innings. Dire stuff in the first two tests.

    Or maybe not. Could he be a decent SA spinner, at last?

    The next tour is in England and that is several months away. We have a Ranji Trophy match, 8 ODIs and the World Cup before then.
