    wtf we often see players reviewing a decision that doesn't get over-turned and hence resulting in reviews being used up.. such rigid views that people seem to have here.

    good bye.

    Never gonna reach Gilchrist's level. Whilst he is very good at accelerating England's totals late on, he doesn't take the game from you quite like Gilchrist did.

    However I would happily hand him the gloves in my all time England XI ahead of Stewart, Ames and Knott.

    Anyway Indian fans are safe, we won't save this as we don't have Onions or Panesar playing.

    he has definitely played MANY match saving innings for England.

    He hasn't been quite as aggressive as Gilchrist but he has definitely stepped up when needed.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    One thing for tomorrow, will Gambhir be at the ground to bat if needed?

    Sad for him and hope he returns but fully understand if he doesn't.

    Prior is by far the best all round wicket keeper England have had in my lifetime. Has obviously worked hard on his keeping as he was pretty terrible when he first started but now he's one of the best.

    Prior will never be a Gilchrist, but he could just prove himself to be the 2nd best keeper/batsman ever by the end of his career.

    & I mean from genuine keepers, not batsman slumming it like Sanga or Walcott.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    I'll tell you what though, if England can manage to even draw this - let alone win it - it will be a massive **** you to someone like Pujara who said some pretty cocky things about England earlier on in the match.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    It is very upsetting to me that India cannot bowl out England twice. I think Dhoni has been poor not to bowl Yuvraj more. I am very close to losing all support of this team.

    Well, there's a pretty good case with Bairstow in the squad, burn or not.

    Prior's supposed to be the better keeper tho, but never thought Bluey looked too awful on the coupla times I've seen him with the gauntlets.

    What did he say? I didn't read the article, but saw the headline mentioning that England look at fragile.
