    Siddle bowling at a very unSiddlesque nip.

Since Dhoni has blocked all his singles he has been forced to play these expansive shots before getting his eye in and that has proved to be his undoing, if you look at it, his defense against spin has been pretty good, all he needs to do is learn to use his feet to spin so he doesn't get bogged down at the start of his innings.
    The fact that most of his go-to shots can't be played with a straight bat says it all, does it not? And he doesn't hurt you with those back foot shots, nor can he rotate the strike with them; unless he's cutting.

    Don't disagree, but against Test class spinners, he has to have more than just one place to go, or find other ways to score without having to go the bomb.

    It's exacerbated further against those guys who spin it away from him too, IMO.

    The crowd's better today compared to yesterday. Hopefully tomorrow, on Sunday, there'll be more people. Hate this policy of giving Tests to venues no one goes to...also very annoying that upto thousands upon thousands of tickets are given away as gifts (to politicians, etc) who never show up and even 'sold out games' are played in front of a lot of empty seats (and turn away actual fans).

    Haha, Gavaskar conspicuously refraining from mentioning Kapil Dev when talking about Indian bowlers...

    That's some decent turn by Lyon...

    (I just realized Lyon was back in the side....the decision to drop him sucked - good to see him come back).
