    Steady on. England are 10-5 here. India still heavy favourites to take this. Tomorrow is a new day and the last two recognised English batsmen will have to settle and find their stride once more. One mistake and it's game over.

    And tbh for these kind of conditions he has a point. But nonetheless it's an arrogant thing to say about the opposition in the middle of a match.

    What a fantastic effort by Cook and Prior. Shown we can fight against India in India. Still a long way to go but now we have a slim chance.

    Just so happy that England are showing such tremendous resilience. This is going to be an awesome series unlike the tedium that was India in England.
    I still want the series to be a whitewash, but meek surrenders are just no fun.

    Damn was actually kind of hoping Prior would go for an Ian Bell Hero Shot off the last ball.

    I think he also said that the match will be over by the end of the fourth day or something to that effect.

    Awesome effort by England and Cook in particular. But I just can't understand why it's so hard to prepare a pitch in India that breaks up progressively over 5 days.

    Best English captains knock since Jo'Burg 95?

    The only two I think up there with this are Vaughan's match saving 105 v Sri Lanka in 04 (?) and maybe Strauss knock at Lords against the Aussies in 09.

    Dhoni no bat pad last over sums him up.

    Just has to go. Offers nothing to the test team any more

    The pitch has slowed down, it seems. Not broken down as was expected after the initial days.

    Fabulous work by these two. I don't think it will change the final result, but enormous credit where due.

    I still wouldn't bat Prior at 5 though. I don't see how demoting a couple of batsmen one place in the order will help them score any more runs, and I'm generally against asking players to bat out of position. In a sense, moving Prior from 7 is fixing one of the few parts of the side that isn't broken. Plus he's going to need as much rest time as possible after keeping for hours to the spinners in these conditions.
