    It's frustrating that Bell can be so f*cking flaky when he has played the gritty knocks needed by a side in trouble. Just happens all too infrequently.

    Hesitant about the first one. Played well but got out when set at a really awkward moment for England.

    Well well well, what's going on here. India have actually taken 4 wickets? Surprising.

    Pitch sounds terrible though. And Bell out to Chawla

    Would be interesting to see how Engalnd's seamers go on this pitch. And Panesar could be a real handful.

    How many of those who laughed off what I first said about Bell immediately after the first Test against Pakistan in the UAE have now come round to my POV?

    They might try some bouncers, to see if they can hit India in the Gangulies

    you said Bell & KP and we all know KP has gone since then so don't take too much credit you were just half right.

    Watching on delay but fast forwarding between balls has brought me up to date.

    My thoughts:

    1. The below posts are pretty poor:

    I'm taking it as a complement that India don't think they can win a straight fight...

    Acting as if this is shooting pitch. Its a **** pitch, I agree with Spark. Not good for cricket. But **** me I would HATE to have to bowl on this. Yeah I could have an economy rate of 1.8, but do you realise how hard it is to get a wicket on this? To say this pitch is a lottery is ridiculous. And to suggest any bowler would want to bowl on this is crazy. Its a slow boring pitch. Woudn't want to bat on it, but wouldn't fear for my wicket on this pitch either. And I definitely wouldn't want to bowl on it.

    I mean look at the wickets. A **** Compton shot, incorrect decision against Cook, horrible leave by Trott and Bell being Bell.

    Yeah real lottery.

    2. Sunil Gavaskar is so ****. Why the **** did he think Cook was out, both live and on replay? ****ing want to smack him in the face.

    3. Ravi Shastri thinking KP was out for that run out appeal, wtf was he smoking? Live I knew he was safe, and the only reason I doubted myself was how positive Ravi sounded that KP was out. WAC. Come on man.

    4. Chawla may have got a wicket, but what a disgraceful selection. 2nd seamer on this would have been so ****ing handy.

    5. Thank **** both Broad and Finn are injured. Pretty lucky or India. Agre with those that say Onions would have been handy, but I'm not going to rule out Bresnan from succeeding yet. That being said, India should go after him.

    6. To reiterate my above point, this really is a **** cricket wicket. Won't have any arguments from me here (as opposed to Ahmedebad).

    7. Jadeja's hair is awesome.

    You ought to read more carefully what I wrote at the time. I clearly distinguished between KP and Bell. The former I wrote was a very good batsman who had lost his way, but had the opportunity to get back to where he had been in the past once he got a bit of confidence and stopped tinkering with his technique. By contrast I maintained in the face of much hostility and hilarity that the latter was not and never had been good enough.
