    2nd Test

    England

    Cook 1 - Once is an annoyance, twice will spark a twinge of concern. The manner of dismissals especially.
    Strauss 4 - Twice threw away starts after grafting. Again. Captaincy was good, very sharp second dig.
    Trott 2 - Not especially fair to him, but his first innings dismissal was poor.
    KP 7 - two poor shots to end two promising knocks.
    Bell 8.5 - Dodgy first innings, extraordinary second innings. Pontingesque, dare I say it.
    Morgan 7 - Blinder second time 'round but still looks fairly useless against lateral movement of any kind.
    Prior 7.5 - No shame in how he got out first innings. Excellent behind the stumps.
    Bresnan 9 - If the world needed a demonstration of just how much depth this England side had, he provided it.
    Broad 10 - Just wow.
    Swann 3 - Horror game with the ball but an important first innings cameo with Broad.
    Anderson 6 - Not his best work.

    India

    Mukund 1 - So lucky not to get a king pair whilst opening which says it all, really.
    Dravid 8.5 - Special, special knock first up. Fell to a cracker in the second.
    Laxman 5 - Threw it away at a crucial juncture first knock, second speaks for itself.
    Tendulkar 4.5 - What on earth was that shot first innings?!
    Raina 1 - Looked hopeless, frankly. Took some good catches, I guess.
    Yuvraj 6 - Did well first innings, and got India into a fairly strong position.
    Dhoni N/A - Rubbish, rubbish game with bat and on field, but what a fine act that was.
    Harbhajan 3 - Finally showed some modicum of fight, but far too late.
    Kumar 7 - At times looked the only member of his attack.
    Sreesanth 3.5 - Bowled well first innings and took some critical wickets, rubbish in the second
    Ishant 2.5 - Likewise, but worse.

    Wouldn't give Morgan a 7 when KP's got a 5, KP scored 29 & 63 Morgan 0 & 70, KP's knock of 63 when he was with Bell, was a better knock than Morgan's against a tired attack with a soft ball. I'd go 5 to Morgan 6 to KP
    The other I'd rate a bit higher is Anderson, not bowled as well as he has done before at Tent Bridge but he bowled very nicely all way through the game, picked up 5 wickets, picked up 2 of the big wickets with beauties in the 2nd innings. 7 to Anderson.

    Yeah I'm not sure why I gave KP 5

    Fixed now.

    Think Anderson getting a 6 is fair tbh. Was good in the second dig, yes, picked up key wickets, yes, but I was not impressed by his first innings effort.

    Spark, are you posting Mukund's and Raina's ratings, or their match aggregates?

    1 for Tech Mahindra and 2 for Freeruns. He is actually getting worse as a bowler. scary thought. Bhaji bowled like **** as well, so give him a 2.

    Harbhajan and Swann getting the same is nonsense.

    Swann deserves at least 4 for his first innings batting.

    I don't think he does, it was only a 20-odd after all. Both Swann and Harbhajan chanced their arm and it sort-of came off in one innings, and we can't really punish Harbhajan for his runs coming when it didn't matter.

    A counterattacking 30-odd when your team is 8 down for **** all that helps drag your team's score to something that you can at least bowl at is far more important than Harbhajan having a slog when the match was gone.

    Plus we can punish Harbhajan for an utterly brainless dismissal in the 2nd innings.
