    lol at Sanz's ability to turn a generalised complaint which cites a match involving India as a current example, into a conspiracy against India.

    Quite right though, every single poster hates India.

    The bottom 5 scored how many runs exactly? What about the top 6?

    When the complaint comes only when the matches are played in India/(and in Pakistan), it has to be said. 9 wickets fell for <300 runs, why are people comlaining that it is a featherbed ?

    Athlai is falling into the deep, dark chasm that is trying to reason with Sanz.

    This is a phenomenon across all pitches in all countries today. It is not as if the subcontinent only has to take blame. Subcontinent teams have batsmen who are brilliant in home conditions and hence there will be more propensity for higher scores and hence draws in such grounds. And I think such high scoring draws mostly happen between India-Pakistan-Sri lanka. I don't see such tame draws being a regularity in matches involving other teams much.

    People complain about uncompetitive pitches where-ever and whenever they occur. I haven't been following this match in any detail, but I gather its a pretty lifeless pitch AND some pretty crappy bowling, and the old adage about not being able to judge which is the stronger factor holds true until we see how SL go when they bat.

    Can't say I've seen the OP post on this issue before, so don't know why you're questioning his motives.

    Hard to argue with that logic - especially in terms of its relevance to the discussion at hand.

    Batting so strong that they can regularly post 400-600 runs at will, bowling not strong enough to take 20 wickets.

    Agree that it happens everywhere bit disagree that it happens most to sub continent teams. It happens most to India because they have such a great batting lineup that whenever the pitch is flattish they make sure they score a whole heap. Ala Napier vs. NZ.
