On a more forward looking approach, Hopkins is going to be a real problem if he continues to keep like this against the spinners. 3 clear chances missed. For now we'll chalk it up to a bad match, but if it goes on, then he'll have to go. Does anyone know the standard of van Wyk's keeping?
Felt genuinely bad for Laxman. He deserved a ton here and was robbed because of an absolute shocker of a decision. Not sure what the umpire was thinking there. But is Laxman the most important member of this test team or what? Seems to bail us out of a hopeless situation every single time. An absolute champion he is.
As for Harbhajan, he may be a bit of a douche but you can't deny that he's really passionate about playing for India and works hard at his game. Was happy that he got his ton and he finally showed what he is capable of with the bat. Now only if he could take some wickets too.

why is he not declaring ..now WTF he want Ojha to score maiden fifty ?
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
This is the same pitch where Hamish Bennett and Chris Martin put on a partnership of over ten runs. It is flatter than jailbait.
But I'm sure you don't really care and will continue your Vettori hate regardless.
So Bhajji has big runs to his name in all three innings now?
