    Haha pitch definitely looking a little weird.


    No bounce either. At least from this end.

    They've been watering after the batting crease but left it dry in the middle it seems.

    It's as if the curator was busy preparing a greentop then realised halfway through that they were in India.

    Surely this pitch won't take much spin on day one. Will slide on.


    On day four and five those jigsaw pieces will crumble.

    Haha Nagpur sometimes does serve up greentops (relatively speaking). He probably didn't want to deal with the ****storm that would inevitably follow.

    Probably quicker than day four I think. Maybe by the end of the day tomorrow the spinners should get something. Definitely day three.

    haha A FC ashwin.

    And Jadeja who has been picked as a batsman here presumably is averaging 21 with the ball.

    Not a great toss to lose, with so many spinners in the team also.

    India's bowling attack hasn't been great but they have not been the main reason for the two losses - its the miserable batting. This is the most ridiculous selection possible. To replace Zaheer and Yuvraj we should have had one bowler (Amit Mishra if you wanted a spinner) and another batsman - Rahane, Badrinath, Rohit Sharma . . . take your pick. Not just because they scored big hundreds in ranji last week (Jadeja scored a triple) but because all of them are better batsmen than him and if Dhoni cant see that then he SHOULD be sacked.

    In Ashwin we already have a batting all rounder (yes that is what he truly is. Jadeja is not even that at the Test level.

    I hope, for India's sake that Chawla takes bucket loads of wickets but at the time of selection his has to be the lousiest piece of selection in many a year and it is Dhoni who must take the responsibility of that.

    I do pray I am proved wrong and Chawla gets ten and Jadeja scores a double hundred though . . .
