    It's just skewed towards Sehwag's strengths. It's slow and is spinning; both of which have never particularly bothered Sehwag.
    There's been absolutely no assistance for the seamers but there is turn for the spinners. Swann's been getting something out of the rough at least. Ball's not really coming onto the bat as well as Sehwag makes it seem though, agree with you on that.

    Not sure whether the footmarks will help India all that much though actually, given that Ashwin tends to bowl much closer to the stumps than your average offbreak bowler, and Ojha won't have any to bowl on to the right handers unless Zaheer goes over the wicket.

    Suspect England have made it look like a road with the way they've bowled, and Sehwag with the way he's batted.

    Swann should trouble Pujara. He wasn't very convincing against Patel in the NZ series.

    yep... itsnot got any movement for the seamers whatsoever but looks like the sort of pitch you get in west indies... slow and low... not a cakewalk for batsmen i think

    Yeah this pitch looks like its offering more than the pitch in the Bang vs WI match. Swann is going to get through a **** load of overs.

    Pujara shows a lot of urgency against spinners and I've never quite understood why, it works at times but lets him down at times too.

    Not that it necessarily counts for much, but he has an attractive looking technique, the boy.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Pujara reminded me of Laxman when I first saw him (not watching the match today as yet)

    Finally some pace from the English. Anderson operating in the mid to high 130s now.
