    Haha, whilst true, this is a place to chat about cricket. If all that mattered is whether your team won itd be pointless to give opinions as you'd never care if you were right because you support a winnin team.

    Yeah but he will just laugh off the stick as the team won. Had the series result gone the other way you'd be more grumpy about tasting it.

    Anyway this is still the worst test pitch I can remember that has gone the distance, obviously the ones called off in West Indies were worse but at least they were comical.

    I really want the pitch to explode tomorrow, for the sake of cricket.

    It could conceivably take India a session to eke out a 30 run lead, which IMO suits England more than India. If I was Dhoni and either the pitch started playing funny buggers or the score was crawling along at 1-2 rpo, I wouldn't hesitate in declaring behind.

    firstly, if they retained dhoni as captain, India will lose again imo. His captaincy is ****, his leadership is **** as there's seldom much intensity on the field. To add to that the
    0-4, 0-4, 1-2 returns for a WC winning captain is more than enough to suggest that he's having a detrimental impact now. Team needs a change and a new guy to lead it.
    Thats just one issue. Then there's 3 batting passengers in the side namely gambhir, sachin and no.6.
    so on...

    bbci will also make a lot less from the games (including ipl) as the indian team's viewership falls with each defeat
    having said that, if india manage to comprehensively win ODIs and T20 etc, because thats what the large majority of the people prefer, then by the time the aus is on the horizon, everyone will have calmed down and partly forgotten about the issues. therefore, bbci will be fine and so barely any changes will be made

    seriously, these odis and t20s etc should be postposned so that they are forced to address the issues now!!

    I think I'd have taken that at the start of play.

    the only reason it has been fascinating is that the series has been on the line..
    otherwise it has been a **** game for particularly a neutral, no doubt.

    nah its been decent viewing if not more. Credit to both sides for their batting its very easy to have one really big collapse on this track and loose the game in a session.

    Seriously? Been horrible viewing. One of the most excruciating Test matches to watch that I've ever seen.

    All the intrigue has happened on the scoreboard, not out on the pitch, apart from that madcap hour on Day 3.

    I have seen on average an hour every day. The thing is even though batsman are not getting out yet they are still looking troubled at the crease imo its better then a 600 plays 650 game.

    Big game against India, if England win this final test it will be their first series win in India for 27 years! Makes the game more interesting

    Nah I hate it. Neither rewards good cricket nor punishes bad cricket (by the bowler especially). Worst kind of pitch.

    Not that 600 plays 650 isn't awful too, but the curator should get the kitchen sink for this. Awful awful pitch.
