    Zaheer, Yadav, Ashwin and Ojha.

    In Indian conditions this has to be one of the best attacks India has ever had.

    Actually scrap that at the pace of India's bowlers they'd have to stand next to Hughes for the edges to carry.

    Kumble and Srinath at their peaks was up there but the third and fourth bowlers were often weak; e.g. Prasad, Raju.

    It was still very marginal in my opinion though. Not thinking so much in terms of DRS here, more just umpiring decisions that went in certain teams favour. I don't think anyone would have complained if he'd not given that, it was very 50-50. Therefore I'd count it as a decision in India's favour.

    Yeah - Kumble, Harbhajan, Zaheer and AN Other definitely looks better on paper, even though they were never really all good at the same time.

    You just know that Broad and Swann will just hit out, even though each of them have the talent to bat for a while.

    Dhoni clangs another.

    Wasn't starting from a very high bar in any event, but genuinely think his keeping has regressed.

    that reverse swinging ball deserved a wicket!! good on the umpires to give that decision 50/50 decision.
