Prior is an expert in these situation, part of the reason he is still in team, he can attack and quickly pull England out of trouble.

Unless England wins prior and Strokes are out of the team, as simple as that. So Prior and Stokes are going to play their best here.

Talk about a lucky wicket.

Will take it though. Still England on top until Root is in there.

Ishant has been bowling short balls quite effectively.
But the trick is now to suddenly slip in a yorker, when the batsmen least expects it.
But can Ishant bowl a yorker at all?

Irrespective of the result here English team (deserved ) for next Test will be

Robson
Ali
Ballance
Taylor
Root
Bopara
Buttler (wk)
Jordan
Broad (c)
Plunkett
Finn

But Anderson may not get banned, so Finn may not get a chance. They may play Cook down the order, so Bopara may not get a chance either.

Woah... that was unexpected. BCCI's chances have been upped by 5% now... still England's game to lose with Broad and Plunkett in there.

Let me say, Well Played Prior, that was an excellent career !!! Still remember it started with a century on debut and included a million rescue acts, some draws, some wins.

Take a bow !!!

Its a bowler's series, cant underestimate till all wickets can be got. Broad is the guy most deserving of a 50, but hasnt got one yet.

Raja, bharath et al: India were on top when we started today, they've increasingly shortened their odds of victory all day and now the only way it is possible for them to avoid victory is if Dhoni chooses to shake hands right now. Presumably as a matter of pity for England's humiliation.

I'm so depressed. Still.
Sometimes I wonder whether life is easier for other people ... or whether they're just better at faking it.

Between Broad, Plunkett and Anderson, there's enough batting still for England.
And only a 100-odd needed now. No big deal.

With the top order doing the job for them.
Preferably Ballance and Root.

It would be painful if they are in a losing position - and then Broad, Plunkett and Anderson win it for them.
Should win by at least 5 wickets.


It's going exactly as I feared.

Broad and Plunkett (and later Anderson, if a wicket does fall), see England though.

Congrats in advance to all England supporters.
