if you had to pay $200 to watch a day's play, you may get a few to watch 600 V 500
but no one would pay $200 to watch a day's play on this pitch.

India v England, 4th Test, Nagpur, 4th day : Sidharth Monga: India, waiting and hoping | Cricket Features | India v England | ESPN CricinfoIt would have been understandable had they come out to bat with quick runs in mind, without bothering if they lost wickets in the process. To everyone's shock, though, R Ashwin began the day turning down singles, which he had been doing in Kolkata too before hitting boundaries when the field came up towards the end of the over. Back then, though, England were going after wickets. Only the na´ve would expect them to bring the field up in this situation.
Brace up for this. Hold on to your armchairs, for you might fall off them: India did expect just the same from England. "The same as the last game," Ashwin said of refusing singles. "Looking for the last two balls for the fielders to come in. They had a different strategy [this time]. They didn't bring the fielders up. After two overs we decided to take the singles."

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Why was Ashwin whining about Trott hitting Jadeja's mystery ball for four?
Yeah, I don't really understand the problems with that. David Lloyd said he didn't think Trott should have done it either. As far as I see it, it's just a bad ball, albeit a really bad one that is unusual.
It's not as if anyone ever tries to bowl longhops or wide half volley's, so I don't get the "it slipped out of his hand' thing. He executed poorly and was punished. Maybe he executes the next one brilliantly and it's a unplayable delivery that takes a wicket
Besides, it's only 4 runs. Not the end of the world.
Storm-in-teacup stuff, given that Dhoni and Jadeja were laughing when it happened. They weren't bothered, so I'm not sure why Ashwin should've been.
