    Funny then, that India's top batsmen are as good away from the subcontinent as they are inside it.

    Funny as well that most Australian batsmen of the last decade average far higher at home than away. Is that because pitches in Australia are flat batting paradises, or because Australian batsmen are simply more used to batting in Australian conditions?

    English and Australian pitches tend to be good for pace bowlers while also providing something for spinners. Warne always enjoyed the added bounce he got for his leggies in Australia. Sub continental pitches tend to be good for spinners but provide NOTHING for quickies.

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

    Off the top of my head, McGrath averaged 18 or 19, Steyn I'm not sure of but possibly 23 or 24.

    Sehwag if you actually ton up tomorrow and win me money I will forever love you! Please do it.

    Also, this is a blatant case of Sri Lanka preparing flat tracks to defend their 1-0 lead
