Gooch and Flower need to be taken to task as it isn't though they haven't had long enough to sort the batting line up out in conditions like this.
This is turning and was turning on day 1. Swann got 4 wickets against the Indian batting lineup on day 1. That is proof its turning more than usual and can be difficult to bat on.
Yeah, The pitch is certainly not a minefield but I'd say it's a good pitch as opposed to a dead one that people were going on about - Offering a considerable amount to the bowlers and rewarding batsmen who work themselves in.
It's certainly not as dead and lifeless as was being said when Sehwag was hitting England around for fun.
Ashwin hard done by with 3-80, tbh. Has been the bowler of the match so far.

So will we get 250 in this innings?
It's funny that I'm surprised to see a seamer bowling the first over.
