    Don't think he's made a significant score in test cricket before this one, so I'll wait it out.

    People don't rag on Scaly too much, his precious hasn't been picked, and "the Donkey" has been the best bowler.

    Two of Donkey's wickets were complete gifts. This is good for England because if he genuinely knocked 4 people over we'd be lucky to make 200. Over two innings.

    AshWIN! He scored a 100 last time he batted here so nice to see him among the runs again. Luckily Bhajji can contribute with the bat otherwise our tail is pretty short.

    And England still haven't dismissed Pujara in the series

    another double ton coming up!

    I'm gonna be optimistic and hope for 400+

    did the ball really start to turn and grip after lunch? Because our score seems below par otherwise atm

    Turned more than last test and bounced. Pujara seemed largely untroubled. Regardless of how good the guy is/ends up he is in some serious nick at present and making England pay.

    Would say our only hope is another Cookie special.

    Oh gawd gambhiring tennis

    Lets see how it is when both teams bat, if we don't get over 200 in the first innings, as seems almost the norm for us, then India are comfortably ahead. If we bowl them out quickly and actually show some gumption with the bat, we're possible faves.

    Grecian, I am just going on our usual crapness against spin and the fact we are batting last on what will be a very difficult pitch. I think we missed a trick not bowling them out for less than 250 when we had the chance.

    Oh, I'm in your camp really, but it's not as desperate as after the first day in the first match, and you'd hope Cook and Priors partnership has shown our bats Ojha and Ashwin, are not that good.

    That's because pacers failed to play their part. I don't expect them to pick 5-fer in India. But they need to chip in 2-3 wickets to remain in the game. You can't expect spinners to do everything. Unhelpful pitch can't be used as an excuse for being completely useless.

    Easy wickets, fluke wickets, tail-ender wickets or whatever, pacers have to support spinners if they want to restrict India to a manageable total.

    I didn't watch much of the game but it does seem premature to say that India is well ahead at the moment. Let's see how England bats first. India's 3 spinner attack does look menacing but as Ashwin showed quick runs are possible on this wicket and there are several England batsmen who could play a similar innings.

    Yeah, could be a time for KP really, a bit of pace means the ball will be coming onto the bat. Glad JB is playing too, good striker of the ball. If Trott, Cook, or Comp could just play a long innings, we've got people who can score quickly, and unsettle the spinners, down the order.

    Not going to happen though obvs.

    Watching highlights with Hindi commentary. The reason Hindi commentary sucks is that it's urban guys who don't speak or write in unadulterated Hindi that are doing commentary. They are guys who speak English better than Hindi. The Hindi commentators of 80's were professionals and much better.

    Broad's time looks about up, no penetration whatsoever like bresnan. meaker or onions should be given a chance if finn remains unfit. alltough onions is more like for like for anderson.
