Mathews must be due a brain explosion. Fluent until he should be set for a big score.
Just can't see how, considering how well Swann has bowled in his career and also in his come back to form recently, you can think Lyon is the better bowler.
Bowled beautifully in India too, so I guess when Lyon tours there in Feb that will be a good time to compare them. But for me Swann is comfortably the better spinner. Lyon still has a long way to go (and he's only played 16 tests so that is fair enough).
But I do think Kohli/Dhoni partnership is being overrated a bit. I might taste it if England collapse in a heap today but despite batting 5 hours they never took the game by the scruff of the neck. The wicket was difficult to score but not a minefield where you could get out anytime. I think its only being appreciated more because of India's recent troubles as I said yesterday 2009-10 India would get 450+ on this deck eyes closed.
Lollin at the lack of variation in the names on that scorecard
kohli and dhoni batted flawlessly for 6 hrs FTR. it was just amazing especially considering that the series was on the line

For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke
These are absolute pies from Starc.
Hard to win for Starc. Young bowler who bowls in-swing; pitching the ball up as he should with a new ball. He'd be criticised if his pitch map was all short.
Not great execution; however Starc is trying the right thing.
Bit over pitched whilst looking for swing, but it's funny how commentators always go on about getting and full and not minding getting driven with a newish ball... then when someone does over pitch they go on about banging it in.
don't blame me i want dougeh
