Moeen is a perfectly fine bowler FFS
Would 400 be enough for India?
England will be in trouble if this wicket isn't as flat as it looks and starts taking spin later on
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
If they don't get another breakthrough soon then it may be worth letting Anderson have a go with the new ball for a couple of overs before stumps but I personally would stick with this one till tomorrow.
said it....England should have gone with Monty
I'm now thinking the new ball with Anderson against Pujara would be a good idea.
He's a decent limited overs bowling option because he bowls that full length that just gets driven for singles and is hard to really get under, but he's bowled that same length here for the mostpart and it's entirely toothless in four+ day cricket, as his FC record will testify to. His second spell has actually been a bit quite a bit better in terms of length but he's not really putting anything on the ball in terms of either side spin or overspin. The more I watch him bowl in Test cricket, the more I'm convinced he's a essentially a batsman only in this format unless he makes some serious changes.
