    Reckon they may keep Patel. He definitely bowled better after that terrible first day and was a little unlucky not to get a wicket or two in that second innnings. Also seems to be a chance that the next match will be on a raging turner.

    Vettori was saying in the post match stuff that the injuries to Ryder and Bennett meant that Patel couldn't play as an attacking bowler. Felt that was a pretty interesting comment.

A certain Sachin Tendulkar not too happy with the very first one either......

    Very interesting work Contra. Didn't know there were so many controversial calls that went against India even after referral.

    Jeetan Patel couldn't play as an attacking bowler because he isn't one. It's a little hard to attack when you're dropping it short constantly and rattling along at six runs an over.

    As I said, interesting words from Dan.

    This is why India is the number one test side. Brilliant stuff from Harbhajan. Laxman IMO is the most under-rated player of the world.

    The test match was near perfect. Had all the ingredients to make up for a ripper. Tests > T20s.

    DWTA we're ranked 8th and we really looked like the only team that could win this on the last day. How does that show you're the best in the world? Best at avoiding defeat maybe.

    We, on the other hand, are unquestionably the best at avoiding victory.

    It'd tarnish our reputation as honest triers.

    That's a pretty good skill really, if you want to be the best.

    Especially when your bowling attack is poo.

    I've supported and defended Franklin for years, but I don't think he's a good pick to play in the subcontinent as his bowling will just be fodder.

    And I think it would be fairly desperate to bat him at 3 and replace Watling or McIntosh.

    I suspect the team for the next test, like it or not, will be exactly the same but replacing Bennett with Southee or Arnel. Not sure which of those two they'd go with, though I get the feeling Vettori has been fairly unimpressed with Southee in recent times. Vettori loves Patel too much to drop him IMO.

    Hard not to love Patel.
