    This one especially is about as scathing as anything I have seen on cricinfo
    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

    Angle makes it look like the bat was grounded, even though I know it wasn't.

    Cracking throw, tbf.

    Reckon we'll get out for no more than 50 extra runs tbh. Imagine we'll come out swinging.

    Can see India folding over though, based on recent times I've watched them. Just seem to fold when up against it, but at least they had Dravid hanging in there over here last year to give you an element of doubt. Sure, someone could easily step up, but I wouldn't be surprised if we win this tomorrow.

    How long has it been since India lost a series at home? And when was the last time England won a series in India?

    It will be a pretty impressive record for Cook if he manages it. And it seems to me he will unless India somehow pull off a win in the 4th Test.

    If he bats twice in the 4th Test, and/or bats again here, he could even top his Ashes 10-11 run tally from one fewer Test. Incredible output.

    That 2004 loss had a lot to do with a very non Indian pitch (due to a feud with BCCI) and Ganguly throwing a tantrum. Not excusing it of course, a win is a win, but these are very Indian pitches. I don't remember a loss on these types of pitches. As I mentioned above, I have never seen non Indian spinners out bowling Indian spinners over a whole series at home. Never. Usually the batting makes them look bad, or they themselves don't bowl well, or the Indian spinners bowl even better, or the visiting batsmen can't bat well. One out of the four things ALWAYS happens, except this time. It's astounding. Well done to England, no matter what happens from here on out.

    There's a first for everything.

    Yeah, I remember you being adamant we'd have no chance over here because of the pitches that would be prepared if it looked like we could win.

    Under no illusions that this series is in the bag - expect the Indian bats to come out hard in the 4th Test, at least , and this one's not won yet - but after the year we've had, this has been a refreshing series save for the first 2 days or so.

    Double shame on you England,
    The truth is you cannot stand.
    Without the help of a saffer hand,
    Yet you call it the english band.

    Even then we were prepared,
    To make your UN team run scared.
    Your Finns, Andersons and Broads,
    Would be buried on our Indian roads.

    But how shameless you are,
    Playing our son of sardar.
    Using one of our own on us,
    Uncle Rob, THAT is atrocious.

    Our son Mudhsuden became Monty,
    Cant a brown have his identity.
    This was always your hypocricy,
    Divide and rule, your policy.

    Now you jump on imported glory,
    That has always been your story.
    Talk when you have 11 Englishmen,
    Or when Monty becomes Mudhsuden.
    .
