    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    ok this test is not worth watching for now.

    i don't think anything besides sehwag's innings will be entertaining.

    This is definitely a back to bed sort of wicket

    We used to play rubber ball cricket as kids and every now and then, when the ball was a bit deflated, strokes would squirt out off the bat with next to no power and you could see the ball going all pear shaped in the air, swerving about. Some of the strokes being played on this pitch reminded me of that, especially the KP dismissal and numerous on-side flicks off slight-less-than half volleys

    I appear to have contracted explosive diarrhoea.

    It's just like really being there.

    Got to wonder about how little Chawla has improved as a bowler since I last saw him bowl 6 years ago. It's not shocking to hear that his figures in FC cricket have been abysmal lately.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    From 139/5 to 225/5 now. Indian bowling's old woes. Can't tighten the screws after taking quick wickets.

    Well done Matty, some short and wide filth being bowled here though.

    George Dobell writing for espncricnfo last night

    That it generated a certain drama was more due to the position of the series than the thrill of the cricket. Indeed, as Test cricket fights for relevance, it is hard to avoid the conclusion that pitches like this represent one of the greatest threats to its future.

    Some will rile at that. They will claim - quite rightly - that India have the right to produce any surface they like for a home series. But this is not a pitch that will suit India any more than it will suit England. It is sluggish and uneven and helps neither the batsmen nor the bowler with the greatest skill. It is not a pitch that rewards good cricket. It is not a pitch that rewards spectators; be they at the ground or watching at home. It is not a good pitch.

    Progress, with bat or ball, can be made. But it can be made, for batsmen or bowlers, only with dogged persistence. There is some merit in that; Test cricket is meant to reward persistence and consistency, after all. But it is also meant to reward flair and skill and produce entertaining cricket and it cannot be ignored that around 40,000 of this stadium's 45,000 seats were empty. Who is going to pay to watch a run-rate below two and bowlers hoping to bore out batsmen?


    Of course he is spot on but does any one in BCCI care.
