    Indian batting averages for the series:

    Sehwag - 253 runs @ 36.14
    Gambhir - 251 runs @ 41.8
    Pujara - 438 runs @ 87.6
    Tendulkar - 112 runs @ 18.66
    Kohli - 188 runs @ 31.33
    Dhoni - 191 runs @ 31.83
    Ashwin - 243 runs @ 60.75

    Prima facie, opening averages don't look that bad compared to recent Indian standards, Tendulkar is the one utterly appalling one out of a largely mediocre bunch.

    Pujara and AshWIN dominate.

    You realise how dodgy series averages are, though, when half a batsman's series runs can come in one innings from a long series

    Yeah I do. I wasn't advocating any action based on them.

    Just posted them as a point of interest.

    it would be the height of frustration if no real steps are taken to remedy the situation by indian cricket after this series
    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

    Could very well be the last day Sachin comes onto the field.

    England won't declare. The only time they'll feel safe, there won't be enough time to bowl India out.

    @patrick_kidd Pat, it’s an open secret that tomorrow is the little master’s last day in test cricket. Ravi Shastri just tweeted me.”

    As twitterati besieged Benaud, he added a caveat: “my friends, it is true to the best of my knowledge. But if I’m proved wrong, blame Ravi Shastri!

    Harsha Bhogle ‏@bhogleharsha

    but i so want tendulkar to bat today...just to see him walk out once more...feeling that way this morning.

    Dunno, whether that's Benaud's real account or not and Shastri isn't on twitter but that's Harsha's real account.

    Are the India media genuinely complaining about the spirit of cricket re: Trott?

    They can **** right off.

    Haven't seen anything in the Indian media.

    Not even from the likes of Gavaskar.

    Only Ashwin when asked about his duel with trott said " I said I could run him out if he could hit that ball. ".

    ‘It was just about the shot with the rolling ball he got away with,’ said Ashwin. ‘When you talk about gamesmanship, we think you should hold yourself to the standards you expect from the opposition.’

    ‘I said I could run him out if he could hit that ball,’ said Ashwin, a reference to the Jadeja incident.

    ‘He said you might as well run me out. But I said I wouldn’t. We’ve got him out enough time to get him out again.’
