    Match so far has been pretty similar to Kolkata 2001... Cook to do a VVS?

    True, but keeping for 700 overs straight is a pretty hard gig, tbf &, given the fragility of our upper order who aren't called Cook, he's likely to have a pretty teeny break between innings if he comes in higher.

    Maybe there's a case for Bairstow to keep in the second even tho (as one understands) Prior is much the better custodian.

    He may but we don't have the Dravid to partner him.

    Strange period of the game this. Dhoni feels happy to let the game drift with defensive fields.

    They didn't exactly give him turners like this though, IIRC.

    Again, not saying this is a minefield, but it's a genuinely turning wicket.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Could spin it on glass, tbf.

    Without wanting to go over the same bollock-crushing CW tropes, I find it interesting that Warne's less than stellar Indian record is sometimes used as a stick to beat him with when Murali's is pretty ordinary too.

    I'd always assumed his record in India must've been on a par with the rest of his career.

    Why must we continue to build partnerships that start nurturing shoots of hope that something incredible might come to pass? Am I going to have to get up at 4am again tomorrow?
