    Nah just that after an over or two at the most (given his first over was taken to) he should have settled in and really tried to use some flight and dip, after all he was bowling with the newish ball (which is good for spinners because you get a mixture of big turn/bounce and slide) rather than simply looking for drift and slid each ball without changing his trajectory. I honestly think throughout his spell this was lacking a bit.

    PEWS is right, this has been blown way out of proportion, not a big difference in opinion but we have struggled to clarify at times, we may have to agree to disagree

    Wait, why is this thread stickied? I thought these games didn't have FC status?

    Like that matters

    Samuels would be a really handy wicket for India here, although I dunno if I could handle watching Bravo continue at this rate with Shiv at the other end

    I swear Dhoni drops at least one of these sort of catches off the spinners for every one he takes. Happens way too often.

    Haha, didn't seem like that it was ever likely to be too costly with the way Samuels was batting.
