RIP Phil Hughes. Forever 63*
Amazing how England players have only scored two doubles in India, and that was in one innings.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,

It was more a "stupid BCCI comments" thing than an actual forumer thing, I think.

We will beat Aussies at home: Srinivasan
Srinivasan - "England won 5-0 in England. They came here within a month or two and they lost 5-0. Last time, after our loss to England, I had said that we will beat them when they visit India,"
maybe I am not the best person to talk about it since I support a side that has Ajmal leading its attack but Ojha elbow looks suspicious at times.
I am trying to remember the last time Indian spin bowlers were thoroughly oubowled over a whole series. I can't remember!
Yea it had happened away for sure. I meant at home.
Another excellent day for England, Cook continued in relentless fashion until he took leave of his senses by getting very tamely run out. We also saw the Trott of old, who was patient early on and found a decent rhythm as his innings progressed, KP too was watchful early on but was beginning to flourish until he missed his sweep shot. Bell's dismissal was poor, a very un-Bell like shot imo, but Matt Prior looks in excellent touch, hopefully he and Swanny can take us closer to a 250-run lead, without wishing to get too greedy!
The way England have bounced back after the first Test defeat is very admirable in conditions where we have continually struggled. This Test is far from won despite the commanding position we find ourselves in, some attractive strokeplay up to lunchtime should set things up nicely, and the pitch does appear to be getting a tad more tricky to bat on.
