    Gavaskar is just like SS. If the opposition get any sort of partnership he cracks it and says the team is being complacent.

    Can't have the opposition bat well or anything

    This is true regardless of the rest of your post IMO.

Bairstow should have a run in the side instead of Bell, who is has contributed absolutely nothing to the side this year and seems as mentally shot as ever when there's a serious challenge.

    Disappointing to read the occasional excuse that this is OK because they aren't used to the conditions. Someone really should explain that to the guys who won in Pakistan and Sri Lanka 12 years ago after we hadn't played in Asia for ages. Against hacks like Saqlain and Murali. Difference was, of course, that they had a game plan.

    And on other matters, the idea that Panesar would have contributed less with the ball than our third seamer looks even more ridiculous today than it has done previously. Coaches and captains are supposed to be able to read the conditions before the match aren't they?

    One wonders what our batting coach is getting paid for as he hasn't seemed to make any difference at all. Then again i'll be shot down now as you can never ever criticise Gooch.

    Has it been poor shot selection? Good bowling? Assistance from the pitch? Mixture?

    Bres looking good for the double.

    All going to plan. Nice of the middle order to get out cheaply just so as i can have more time to watch the great man.

    Haryana's last few scores in completed FC innings: 97, 120, 55, 183, 334, 66. The 334 came against England.

    You do wonder, don't you. And what Flower has been doing, as he knew how to bat in these conditions.

    Whether these guys were interested in listening is perhaps questionable.

    I actually think Ojha has been pretty meh; he's not bowled badly but he's getting a lot of help from the pitch and England have played him like stooges. Ashwin has been excellent though.

    Broad might as well play like that. As long as he spares us his version of the paddle sweep, I won't mind too much.
