a series victory for India would probably be a good thing to promote the upcoming series here this summer

loved it when Shami crunched Anderson for six to bring up his half century, :bow: take that Jimmy :slap: :lmao:

Big mistake not playing Ashwin on a pitch like this. :annoyed:

Australia have destroyed England in 1 series, there mentally shot; before the Ashes they were highly regarded as one of the best teams in the world, not now.

ROFL@cook hype & failure. Waiting for BCCI haters start finding reasons to pick on even to the extent of alleging that pitch is made to suit BCCI? :wtf:

Reminded of that Colombo Test where BCCI batted first, made 540-odd.
Sri Lanka then ground BCCI to the dust, scoring 952/6 decl.
Even in that game, BCCI had taken an early wicket before Jayasuriya and Mahanama decided to have fun. :-)

Maybe Robson and Ballance do the same here. :-)

So Cook's filthy luck continues. After a day in the field trying his damndest to get a bunch of knackered seamers and an expensive seamer to implement all his different tactics, he gets out to a dismissal that simply wouldn't have happened to any batsman in form. Ah well, Robson and Ballance are doing ok so far this morning. If England don't collapse, it's gotta be a draw.
Sometimes I wonder whether life is easier for other people ... or whether they're just better at faking it.

Broad is killing India. This guy needs to be England captain, he said he can take sledging in Australia and was unflustered. He said last night, England need to dig in, and true to his word he is digging in.

He is not a lovely character, but he is leadership material.

I just realized Ashwin's test and first class batting average is superior to Binny's. So Binny is a really inexplicable selection if they just wanted some depth in batting.

Also, Ashwin's test batting average is twice that of Jadeja.

Rootabaga with 50. England still have a chance to win this match. They will be way better with the ball in the second innings.

Those who bowl many overs on this wicket know the pain. They are keen to enjoy their moment in the sun with the bat while they can.
Anderson doing a very good job here. With the bat.

Yes, it's his highest.
In 94 Tests till today, his HS was just 34.
Here he's batting 60*.

By this reckoning, Anderson is 12 times better than Cook and counting.

@katto: no obvious fixing, the pitch is just flatter than the Adelaide Oval and neither side has Johnson to blow up tailenders. Also, Jimmy's highest score in 168 previous first class matches is a lofty 37 not out.
