    then all england would have to do is bat max 3.5 sessions to at least enusre a draw on this dead road.
    India will have to somehow get England out in less than 1 day either which way to force a win here.

    So, got to hope the pitch does rough up and break up a bit more during today and India can survive the day. Has been a strange dead pitch this, not the 3 day pitch that everyone was hastily predicting first morning.

    51 runs in 27 overs so far. brilliant.

    2 rpo-
    another 126 runs in the remaining 63 overs?
    final score around 260-270

    3 rpo-
    final score around 330


    bare minimum is the latter.

    otherwise, the bowlers would have to get england out in just 3 sessions. i can't see that happening tbh.

    They can pick up the rate later. They can never get back wickets.

    Indeed, it's not as if England haven't been bowling well enough either.

    can indian bowlers run through england, including their lower order?

    despite a good session, chances are slipping of saving the series.

    32 overs, 59 runs, 1.84 rpo

    need a big acceleration against these accurate bowlers later on.

    There are 8 sessions to go.

    These two had to make sure India didn't collapse like they did in the last two tests. They have gone a long way to achieving that. They can up the rate later like Swann did. They're shot-makers, but they haven't got many bad balls.

    If England are still in the field in the third session they will get many more bad balls.

    India couldn't win the test in that session, but they could quite easily have lost it.

    It might have been as entertaining as watching paint dry, but it's exactly the right thing to have done. I can't see enough wickets falling to create a result as things stand - it seems like batsmen can stay in if they want to adhere themselves to the wicket - but you never know what the pitch is going to do on days four and five.

    Draw the clear favourite with the bookies at the minute, mind.

    burning question-

    why the **** would they produce a draw pitch when the home side is in a must win situation?



    barely anything of note happened in the 1st session. there were very few play and misses too.

    Sreesanth facebook update of the day:

    "When I was undergoing surgery after surgery, I thought my cricketing career was over. Forget cricket, I couldn't even walk and was in the wheel chair for almost two months. I went through unbearable pain. Now I have platinum screws on my toes. But that won't stop me from bowling at my best." (sic)
