    Anyone have any idea why Yuvraj backs up about twenty metres to the side?

    Good time for a bit of pace. Maybe they can unsettle Yuvi.

    All a bit formulaic from Cook. Why wouldn't you give Swann the new ball?

    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.
    Yeah, his role is as a seventh bat who can turn the arm over as a change-up. He's in the side because he's the best batsman-who-can-look-slightly-more-threatening-than-KP-with-the-ball.

    Except he isn't; Joe Root is.

    India's day at 323/4. The pitch looks immense for spin and India would've certainly taken that.

    Swann is the player of the day with 4/85, IMO.

    It's easy to forget how easy on the eye Yuvraj can be when he's batting well in Tests due to how awful he looks when he's being exposed (and tbf, how often that happens). I'm not really a big fan of left handed batting from aesthetic point of view and Yuvraj isn't even what you'd call a good Test batsman but he's a bit of a guilty pleasure for me on these wickets. Makes me dislike him even more though in a self-loathing kind of way.
