    Bell has a test wicket! And quite a good one too! Apparently, he has taken Mo Yousuf's wicket.

    He cheated to get it too, claimed a grounded c & b IIRC.

    England scored big on a big scoring deck, after winning the toss. Mostly because the outfield was really, as in really, quick. Patel (44 of 20) was the big gun late in the innings as England got 38 of the last two innings.

    India weren't too far behind. But Tredwell kept the rate down and took 4 wickets.


    The unsung hero prize goes to Joe Root. Didn't get a swing at it, but bowled 9 tidy overs.

    And I thought it was a pretty good win. The top 6 did their jobs, even if I thought we were going to be about 50 runs short of a par score until Patel got us somewhere close. And most of the bowling was respectable against an experienced batting side who would have fancied chasing 350 in those conditions, especially against that attack.

    Tredwell did far better than we had any right to expect, and I don't see him claiming 4 for 44 every time. Which means the batsmen will need to do even better if we are going to stay competitive, as our bowling still looks like a weakness out there. But we've already done better than in the previous two series in India, which in itself exceeded most folks' expectations.

    I'd still like to see Buttler in the side, as I think he could develop into a serious threat. Root's economical bowling makes that unlikely just yet. I can't see any other reason why he has leap-frogged JB into the team.

    He should be in for Kieswetter IMO. It's not like CK is actually a good gloveman anyway. No need to drop Root even if he does appear to be playing in a slightly strange role.

    btw three rest days after each of these games sounds like at least one day too many.

    I'm sure the players from both sides would prefer the series to finish sooner rather than later, and I don't see any commercial reasons for stringing it out like this.

    From what I read they're not even considering Buttler as a WK for this tour so it's a moot point

    The games are all over the place. They probably just need extra time for travelling between the places - players, press and the bcci

    Why not, he's keeping in the t20s?

    It's funny with kies in this position, he does okay, but never more than that, it never looks like he's going to strike massively.

    guess they just don't he is a good enough wk yet for 50 overs. hey i'd love buttler in there over kieswetter at present - even though i rate kieswetter. I'm just saying I wouldn't be anticipating kieswetter being replaced by buttler in this series - but maybe im wrong.
