    Compton is playing the exact same game he's employed all series; the go-slow has just been a Cook thing.

    I guess Cook decided 1.89 was a milestone enough.

    Well the last 2 or 3 overs have been about as exciting as it has got today. Can't really blame England for going slowly, not as if India really took the game by the scruff of the neck yesterday is it when they had a mammoth partnership? Shows how hard it is to score quickly on this track.

    Have to lose one wicket first though. I have a feeling these two could up the tempo any time they wanted to. And there are stroke players to come.

    40 up!

    i'd be surprised if india even took 3 wickets by close of play tbh.

    you guys are kidding yourselves if you think england are digging their graves here.

    they have actually scored quite a few runs in teh last 3 or so overs.

    Lol, when the commentators are calling for Chawla as India's great hope, you know its curtains.

    Frankly they were going at 2rpo when they were trying to bat normally. Of course it's going to be slow as **** when they're just looking to bat time.

    Yeah if Galle last year (which gave us a really exciting Test) got reported, then this one should get a lot more than a report.

    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

    Ashwin - now averaging 61 with the bat for the series - can't buy a ****ing wicket.

    Absolutely, there was nothing wrong with that Galle pitch. This is the worst pitch I can ever remember seeing.

    how do you get out on this pitch?

    you just don't if you bat sensibly.


    43 overs and just 1 wicket today and that too of a useless ojha
