    I can see Ojha being discarded forever from the Indian setup after this series. Much like the players who played during the late 90s and the early 2000s.

    Because some of them had to face an all-time great in Murali, also the pitches tend to be flat for 2-3 days and then take turn, if you've lost the toss then it can be tough. If you bat first you'd be disappointed if you don't make 500+

    It's because India and Sri Lanka batsmen are clearly 10-15 runs per innings better on average than every other batsmen in the World. Yep just look at those last 3-4 year Test batting averages. They're purely on merit. All the muppets defending them said so.

    3rd Test: Sri Lanka v England at Galle, Dec 18-22, 2007 | Cricket Scorecard | Cricinfo.com (all out 81 and saved by rain, how embarrassing)

    Oh right so because England were all out for 50odd in the West Indies it means their pitches are seam bowler paradises.

    Any more bull****?

    No more like, since England could manage 400+ in a single day for 6 against Australia in England, the pitches are roads over there..

    Isn't that the exact same principle you're using in this thread?

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    It's as if subcontinental batsmen playing in the subcontinent are somehow used to the conditions and find it easier...

    It's as if pitches in India and Sri Lanka are generally much better to bat on than the rest of the world. Oh wait no it's because their batsmen just all happen to be 10-15 runs per innings better than everywhere else.
