    Yeh media playing down the impact of Finn's injury but it is bad news.
    Bresnan is a big step down in quality and even considering the current quality (or lack of it :D) of the Indian batting I would expect them to get a few of Bresnan on an Indian pitch.

    Bresnan belongs in the Scarborough U13s side. Powder puff.

    Bangladesh would score 200 off him.

    Oh ffs.  The first time England win the toss all series, and we're royally screwing this up.  Cook gets a shocker, but the rest?  Jeez...  I am Ian Bell's biggest fan and supporter, but flip me does he make  it hard sometimes.  And what the hell was Trott doing?   

    As it is, thank goodness for KP who's playing an incredibly mature and sensible innings at the moment.  Here's hoping that Root can go well on debut  :tu  And is it bad that there is a part of me that hopes the Indian top order find form, but only against Bresnan - just so I never have to see his awfulness near an England shirt again?

    It's not an easy pitch. Slooooow. Try slogging, and the team's fliped.

    Trott was out but not given. Dharmasena's been crap. Root looking decent.

    And don't worry, even dobbing it at 70 on this pitch but bowling straight would be enough. Had to be Onions, just had to be.

    Expected stat tbh. Without checking, I'd say Hauritz, Lyon second, Clarke third with Krejza getting a fluke 10fer somewhere and Beau Casson being the best one but having a dodgy heart.


    Oh no, McGain has to be the best there...

    Why would they be screwed if they slog it on a slow pitch?

    Bell playing like Tendulkar,  kind of a similar player but miles less class and in the same useless form.   The youngsters are doing OK, Compton not really very young but another player that should of got an earlier chance,  Root getting a go and hopefully the ginger guy Bairstow can replace Bell next time up.

    I live in hope.

    Good day, but 300 would be a very good score on this pitch. Not convinced it's a top day for India.

    Bell's a lock. He's from Warwickshire.

    Damn, I just wish India could wine one in convincing fashion - or at least put up a great fight - initially SA wasn't that great at all in Aus but Faf (and even AB that one day) brought us all something to wow about - missed Ashwin's effort that day, might have qualified for something similarish? I remain optimistic, as per usual.

    Nowhere near. One match was saved the other was comfortably lost, even when Ashwin walked in.

    This was the equivalent of du Plessis'

    Knight reckoned that India could play this pitch very differently to how England are playing it. It seems like it is not that hard a pitch to play on but then again scoring on it is difficult. You really have to play the spinners. Considering how KP got 70 odd of 180 or so balls it is very obvious to me that it is difficult to score on this pitch. Compare the pitch and scores on one day to last test and you also see that. Sehwag and Dhoni and those type of players could have a good day if they can just hit the ball over KP style, but the more orthodox Tendulkar style players may struggle to score on a pitch with uneven bounce and which is difficult to read.

    Knight's a :censored, to be fair. His buttocks are superglued to the fence.

    The orthodox should play far better than the sloggers, and Dhoni and Sehwag will likely struggle (the revelation!). This pitch isn't a hitting pitch, KP is just England's best batsman by a long distance along with Cook. Slogging will get a player in the sh*t on this pitch, it's slow as. Root showed that the orthodox can play just as well as any.

    Not to mention, the orthodox players have a better technique to counter low bounce and slow pitches than the sloggers, who'll want the ball to come onto the bat at speed.

    Fantastic innings by the dependable Sehwag.

    Why would anyone want Lankan captaincy? Worst job in cricket.
