So as soon as the ball loses some hardness the run rate drops a bit. Last 10 overs 25 runs. Crap pitch.
Monty 41 overs and only 58 runs conceded. No bowler should be able to have figures like that on any pitch the way players strike the ball these days.

5 overs, 7 runs.
have started slowly. i hope a wicket doesn't fall now due to the pressure that is being created.
Not trying to be a **** here Jono but your posts in the last 20-30 minutes have been seriously weird for someone usually so level-headed.
You pretty much just straw manned everyone except CWB. You should've just ripped into him instead of "the haters" because all the other criticism of Kohli in this thread has related specifically to how he's been a disappointment in this series. Which he has. Doesn't mean he's a rubbish player or should be dropped or anything like that but both his numerical contribution and his methods of dismissal have been very disappointing this series up until this point, inexperienced or not. Most of the fingers were being pointed at the senior players and rightly so but criticism of Kohli's batting in this series on this forum was valid and you've acknowledged that as well.
It actually reminds me a bit of when members here rip into the non-existent BCCI fanboys on this board. I've been guilty of that too in the past when it comes to the DRS. You're putting **** on a group of imaginary people who were egging CWB on and gagging for Kohli blood.

it'll be interesting to see how england respond in the next innings after so much time spent in the field.
Dhoni the batsman is (was) actually pretty bloody good. Awful technique but he's scored big against good attacks before. There was a period where he would have been good enough to bat in the top 6.
He's just been lazy and overburdened. The overburdened part is not an excuse. He should have realised when he was failing that he needed to spread some responsibility.

High risk on this surface but well executed.
Nah go **** yourselves. Its Kohli vs. the world here, and he's winning.
