    They may not be able to produce a rank turner; but they can still produce a road that negates quick bowling.

    Look at what happened to the damp table top ground at Krishnagiri: Ranji Quarters and semi: 66 of the 69 wickets to fall went to the quicks, with the games getting over in two days. BCCI wasn't happy about these pitches and subsequently shifted the second A team game against the England cubs to Mysore. Then they prepared a slow road for the IA vs ECubs game: over 1100+ runs for 21 wickets in four days.

    Yes, I think Afghans will win as well, but looking forward to a competitive match. With both WI and BD moving up a notch in terms of quality in recent days, both Afghanistan and Ireland have some catching up to do. SL continue to fall though.

And still the game goes on.

    Cricket is slowly digested. Baseball doesn't have a thing on test cricket.

    At the very least there is a guaranteed loser...... Test Cricket.

    Quite a surprise that Mujeeb is not in the squad.
