It's going to be either Draw or BCCI win on this test.

A slap on BCCI HATER faces. Very enjoyable batting performance. :up:

Celebrating the denial of one run that would have taken him to 200. Thinking that dismissing him on 199 is a victory for the bowlers. That's very British of us.

India will no doubt power on to 650 even without kohli and pujara

And don't tell me, I bet Rahul got dropped on 7 or something

I remember that one. And Vaughan falling short of a double like three times on his first ashes tour. 197, 187 and something, or thereabouts

And cook on 294, Crowe even worse on 299.

So what?
You play to your strengths.
How about England and Australia make spinning paradises to help BCCI batsmen ?
No ?
Why not?
You demand the other way for BCCI to do it ?
Why should it go one way alone ?

Loosing toss truly Blessed for india were first innings lead considered Golden,but virat proved , it dose not matter.477 looks small total vs 391 for 4

No Misty. Losing Toss did not help. Toss is everything in today's cricket where half match is won with toss. But in-spite of adversity BCCI did well. Not many teams can pull of a win batting second especially they get to start with 450+ score behind. Give credit for genuine effort.

Not at all impressed by Karun Nair.
I was glad when he was picked in the BCCI team - after all, he plays for Karnataka in domestic cricket.

But his innings hasn't been impressive at all.
Of course, we have to allow for nerves - he's clearly nervous.

Wonderful to see how the offside field is packed for Karun.
England is choking him - denying him that single.
Stokes is bowling to his field, so Karun isn't able to get him away for that single.

Karun will struggle on wickets with bounce.
I reckon he'll be a disaster in Australia, South Africa and even the West Indies.
He's clearly a flat-track bully.

He is your half brother, you can not underestimate him, who scored 350 in the 4th innings of Ranjitrophy final

When he hits triple, you criticized BCCI of not selecting him, you forget about it.Did you remember how Sachin and VK struggle to their early career.

Even Jadeja has two triple hundreds in Indian first-class cricket.
Doesn't mean a thing.
To me, he will continue to be a slogger.
Anyday give me an Ashwin or a Jayant Yadav as a batsman over Jadeja.

Scoring runs in India mean zilch. If Karun can get a hundred in English conditions (I mean proper conditions, not faux conditions like on an Oval road), then I might revise my opinion.

I don't think England should tour India again until they find a decent spinner. And pick front line bowlers not a team of all rounders who aren't as talented with the ball

Parthiv Patel continues to cost BCCI Tests.
Dropped Cook when he was just 4, off a beautiful Ashwin delivery.
Ball was going on to Kohli at slip, but Parthiv intervened and spilled the chance.

If you're looking to win, you can't let these chances go.

Thanks to Parthiv dropping Cook when he was just 4, we will survive this Test.
0-3 isn't too bad in India in a 5-Test series.
Could've been worse.
