    wow....Gambhir hasn't made a century in the last 45 innings?
    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

    I could understand a caring captain wanting to protect his debutant, were it not for the small detail that Jadeja has made two FC triple-hundreds this season.

    Hmm, an "interesting" bowling change.
    Do I contradict myself?

    If England win this game, this will have been the most impressive victory on Indian soil that I have ever seen. Previous times when India lost, it was never on pitches like this. When Australia won, it took a pacy Nagpur pitch to seal the deal.

    England here have won on bounce and spin (Mumbai), Flat/low and spin (Kolkata), and slow and low breaking up (Nagpur). That is unbelievable. I would not have thought it possible. Yes, I know India have played like **** - but that has happened before too. The difference was the England spin bowling and England batting against spin was superior to their Indian counterparts in all Indian conditions.

    Amazing.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    There was a wee bit of in drift from Trotters, tbf.

    Mind you at his pace there should be.

    He'll want another tilt at the Aussies, surely, but I think then that might be it. Turns 40 in April, I don't see him playing after that.

    Yeah, this will be a impressive result but the way India just crumbled and showed no fight once England showed resistance is just outrageous.

    50% chance at least if india lose.

    Drop list-

    Gambhir - drop
    Tendulkar- retire
    Dhoni - axe as captain and player
    Ashwin- learn to bowl in ranji
    Chawla - how's he even in the team

    Great session for England and a quite outstanding spell from Anderson. Bresnan's still doing nothing to justify his selection, but Root's innings means the selectors are in credit overall. The follow-on shouldn't be an option, but if we do take their last six for less than 40 then hopefully we'll bat again anyway. You wouldn't want to be batting on Day 5 on this track unless you're chasing a piddling total.

    Yep, think he'll play that series or atleast one match there and call it a day.

    Unless ofcourse the selectors/board want him to do it before.

    Will be so so odd playing without him.
