So in a space of 6 runs this morning, BCCI lose both their overnight (recognised) batsmen.

Hmm. Batting pitch or not, BCCI knows exactly how to revive sagging spirits of the opposition.

Cook could not have got a better opposition team to help him restore his image. :-)

there's enough in this pitch for a result

poor catching and unimaginative captaincy and bowling though

Dhoni dropped. Dhoni looks happier in odis and 220so because he can control the game better in those formats, where he is huge fish. In tests by design he is in a enormous pond. Dhoni is not someone who will play a 200 ball inning too often.

Now its bad batting. India won't score more than 260 here.

England will need intent to win but they can.

Jadeja has a strange career 3 300s in FC but in all other formats combined (List A, ODIS, T20, T20Is, Tests) his highest score is 78

Nasser Hussain: When can I see India playing in a football world cup? *giggles *

Harsha Bhogle : Its better not to participate rather than getting knocked out in the first round.

Sourav: If India had played world cup football for 50 years, then they would have qualified for the finals at least once unlike England.

206 from 55, now cook is in trouble, he is under so much pressure as captain, he has to attack, use broad and Anderson, despite knowing the chase will be over 4 an over. And he will have to go for the target, opening himself.

England will need to chase 6 an over to win if India get bowled out in 10 overs. Plunkett back in attack, cook realists it.

Binny on 37.

10 overs?
Conditions are not like in the first innings.
One over should be enough for the last 3 wickets.

England have given up. 3 mis fields in 3 balls, bunny 50. 236 needed of 45.

India need to dig in as broad says. Bat till Tea and make sure England end up bowling 50% more overs than them.

Even if he's dropped, at least a few guys on the balcony to clap for him would have been nice. Especially considering he's trying to save the Test.

Why declare? It's not like England are going to be dismissed in 40 overs.
They will then bat for 25 meaningless overs before Cook and Dhoni shake hands.

This way, they get a chance to tire the England bowlers just a bit more. In this series, bowlers getting tired is a big deal.
