    In fairness, Swann got it to turn deeply thrice now and it's still the first session.

    It's a pitch where spin is the best way to go and you have arguably the finest player of spin in the world in his element and Gambhir is a very good batsman against spin as well.

    It's not even like the fast bowlers have been bowling well for no reward on a flat pitch. This sort of bowling would get you hit on 90% of pitches in the world.

    Why is there a shortage of fielders in the point/gully area to Sehwag?

    Well there are no slips in either so Cook doesn't want the bowlers bowling outside off at all. The idea must be to bowl straight, change it up and make him mis-hit one or get struck in front. I'd probably keep plugging away with a slip itbt but in the absence of that, you shouldn't have to over protect areas that the bowlers aren't meant to be bowling to.

    Makes sense, but he squirts straight balls through the square on the off side

    Yeah, not the way I'd go, but I can see what he's doing.

    That last game at Ahmedabad vs the Kiwis in '10 - what did the pitch do?

    All I can remember is Martin's spell on the fourth evening (?)

    The pitch didn't do anything, Martin's spell was more of India just panicking and just playing dumb shots (not to take anything away from Martin who bowled well), the pitch was actually pretty similar to this one, the turn was slow and low. It's kind of why Indian fans don't like Ahmedabad as a ground because it generally produces draws.
