They dont make people like Gilly anymore.

India loves him.

Did you go? ;)

"A wicket-keeper with an average over 54??!!"

Used to be over 57. Let's hope that it gets back up there some time, but not against us. :D

Unfortunately no. The wedding took place about a stone's throw from my house but I had to take the missus out and so couldn't gatecrash into the reception. Autograph hunters had a field day.:)

Poor Murali. Not many people would like to spend their wedding days signing Autos. ;)

Seen this? England A Team 'Arafated' to defeat. :D

Not all bad though. :)

7/2 to 323/2. Well, I suppose it was all planned to avoid running battles in Islamabad. :confused:

Good to see Yasser alive and bowling.;)

It is reported that the ECB paid Zimbabwe $250,000 (?132,600) in compensation...



I bet that goes into Mugabe's hip pocket.;)

You might be right, but I dare say it's a small fraction of what he has already horded for himself. :mad:

Why do good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people?

I hope India does not play for a draw. :(

Sehwag has started like Wild Bill Hickok, 39 off 33 balls.

On that pitch, little else is likely. Wake me when you're 1201/3 dec. ;)

Must be a tame wicket. But good to see Inzammam and Shewag back in form! Bodes well for the next year m'thinks.

So tame the even Sehwag dislikes it.

"On the wicket.
I don't think it is a good Test-match wicket. Pakistan made nearly 600 runs and we have made nearly 400 runs. So many runs in three days of cricket can't be a good wicket for Test match cricket. Pitches have to help both bowlers and batsmen to make it interesting"
.

He's right of course but there's nothing to do about it now. The ptich at Mumbai when Australia was beaten was much better because it produced an exciting result. :)

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. :)

He should bat on and on, and as for Kumble, he is batting at home. If he cant bat in Bangalore, he cant bat even in Paradise.

I'm back to the idiot box.:D

Tomorrow crunch time. Time for Sehwag to add a second double ton of the match. :confused:

What happened? The pitch couldn't have deteriorated that much surely. A distinctly uninspired batting display. Still, no winner. No loser in the series, and there is probably some justice in that. Good luck in the 1dayers. :confused:

When Sourav Ganguly came out to bat, sections of the crowd shouted, "We want Karthik, we want Karthik". Less creative sections just booed. It was sad: such a fine batsman in his prime, perhaps the best captain India has ever had, now reduced to a poor parody of his former self. He pottered around for a while, then tried to drive a ball from Shahid Afridi that pitched wide outside off, and missed. The ball came into him viciously, and bowled him. As the fielders celebrated, Ganguly stood around wondering what had happened, unable to fathom that he was out, thinking perhaps that it was a stumping attempt and his foot was in the crease, or that the ball had rebounded from Kamran Akmal's pads. He had been down for a while; and now the umpire said that he was out. He walked off; was it for the last time in a Test match? The crowd didn't care. They booed him.



IMHO, Afridi made this a match.
