    Something tells me it won't be Hammond.

    Actually 5 on 22 now. Both Cook and KP will pass 25 with Cook going past 40 by the end of his career I reckon.

    Oh FFS. **** was to end what had been a good session. Top catch, though.

    Always likely to happen, Ojha been the pick of the bowlers so far. If we'd been offered this position at lunch before play started we'd have ripped your arm off.

    crap session for us, but that wicket gives a bit of confidence, a lead of more than 50-60 runs can be really damaging for India.

    We gotta make sure KP doesn't damage us after lunch. If he decides to go on the offensive and attack...

    that last wicket would give India some confidence. If they can keep England b/w 350 to 400 from here it wouldn't be a bad effort
    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

    At least India now have no excuses in the second innings, can't believe everyone was giggling on about how 320 odd is an excellent score and all that crap. Time for the likes of GG, Kholi and Yuvraj to step up.

    Agree Contra. As far as we are concerned if KP bats another session then England will probably win as he will score so fast that the lead will be over 100 by then with more to add possibly. Patel will be hoping he isn't sawn off by the umpires for once when he comes out after lunch.

    If the ball hits any helmet on the fielders or outfield and the ball can't be caught.

    I don't really see the logic in that,do they really consider the ball hitting a helmet as ground the ball?

    They just call it dead ball basically. It stops you getting out caught when you hit the short leg on the head and the keeper catches the rebound. Love the quirks in the rules of cricket. If it did hit Gambhir on the helmet it is yet another ****house decision in the series, but if it did then surely Bairstow will have seen it and told the umpires to check it.

    I think they argue that it bounces more off the helmet. So if you sweep it, it hits the short leg on the helmet and bounces in the air you can't get out. I guess it wouldn't bounce as much if it just hit the guy on the head!
