Haha @ Cook's batting record as captain; 5 matches, 886 runs with an average of 147 & 5 hundreds. Makes Bradman look 2nd rate.
Hayden's efforts in 2001 were amazing, considering the dominating bowling attack, and big turning pitches. He was more dominant too, really attacked the daylights out of the bowlers.
Yesss, Trott out
Dave Mohammed >>>> You
Darn, deserved a hundred there. Well done Trott though as he was under pressure before that knock after a long barren run.
Couple of hours of KP would be nice.
SLA tho, etc

Tough on Trott but the run rate probably needed that. Can't lose the game now, so it is just a matter of how many and how quick.
stage is set for KP

You have got to earn the right to be aggressive.
Yuvraj on to bowl to KP
Wait, only *now* Yuvraj is bowling?
Kumble did not play that entire series.
Harbhajan was the only decent spinner India had in that series and he pretty much took out Australia by himself.
On top of this, Srinath didn't play the last two tests.
Hayden played well but it's worth putting it in perspective.

Richard Dickinson - you little beauty !!!!
India fielded Bahutule, Kulkarni, Zaheer and Harbhajan their attack in the third test.
Bahutule and Kulkarni were pretty ordinary spinners as was Sanghvi who played in the first test. I reckon Ashwin and Ojha were better than them.
The only decent spinners Hayden faced were Harbhajan and Raju - teh latter for one test only.
