    Top partnership that.

    4 wickets yesterday, 4 wickets today. For all the talk about batting last in India it's been an age since the idea has really been tested.

    Indeed. I was sure there was variable bounce but it all disappeared.

    And ftr all I said was that I'd like a bowl on this pitch. Really that's just an overestimation of my own ability

    It would have been interesting to see you bowl on this pitch actually. You tend to go for lots of runs regardless of the situation but take wickets in bursts, so you could've been really useful in progressing the match on a pitch where the opposite of what you do has happened the whole time.

    You certainly would've offered more than your favourite player did in this game anyway; should've been selected. I blame Callum.

    I just suggested that Howe_zat should've been selected to play in a Test and you feel the need to openly state I'm taking piss?

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    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

    I've said that this pitch will become a minefield, but thats starting to look wrong. Pretty shocked at how samey this pitch has behaved since the first session.

    It is probably the worst possible pitch for cricket.

    Anyway, almost there now, would be reallly good to see these 2 go on tomorow.

    Just one ball every five overs or so misbehaves. Could play on this for another three days and nothing would happen by the look of it. Dreadful viewing but as far as England are concerned they are laughing as no result was ever likely on here.

    Ahmedebad?

    People were not saying this was a normal pitch. There was much extreme talk.

    Anyway curator must be fearing for his job.
