Well done Tend. Can he get 50 Test Tons before he retires.:chok:

Anyway, hopefully it will result in an innings win for India.

And incredibly NZ overpower oz, albeit one with a second string bowling line up. But the big problem for world cricket over the next 5 years made 88no. Very quickly indeed. When Hussey was out of the oz setup I expected him to average over 50 in tests if he ever got to play any. I did not predict him averaging 130 in odis by the time he retires, helped by only being out in under half his innings.:respekt:

According to my stickcricket oracle, IndiavSri Lanka is going to be a high-scoring draw, with hundreds by Sangakkara and Jayasuria in SL 1st innings, double hundreds by Dhno and Sehwag in India's 2nd innings, with a double hundred by Sangakkara and a century by Jayasuria in the unsuccessful run chase, with Sri Lanka left on 461 for 1 at the end of day 5 chasing 494 to win. Jayasuriya has apparenyly been smuggled into the team while wearing a mascot'#s outfit.

245/3 soon became 290 all out.:(

Murali bowling like a wizard. He bowls round the wicket, in between the umpire and the stumps, pitches the ball outside leg stump, and clean bowls Dhoni by taking his off stump. Some doosra that. Nobody could make out head or tail of what he was bowling. He has the same action for every ball.Pullhair

That's what happens when you have to stay up most of the night. But you wouldn't want us to completely humiliate the Pakis by a whitewash would you?:shocknlau

Sorry to sound defeatist but I think the rest of the team might as well come home now. It ain't be good! :(

There is always the chance of most of Pakistan being hospitalised in a coach crash. But it couldn't be expected to fall on the right day by accident... :Bad::Potstir::devil:

On second thought perhaps not. God has just punished me for that remark by sending a silly little car into the back of mine. At low speed thankfully.:mad::angel::(

No it's just fate. As in WI and SA we are doomed to win the first game of an overseas odi series and be hammered in the others. Standard procedure apparently. :confused:

Bumper will need replacing. Very limited damage to the rear bodywork, probably not worth repairing. At least it proves that the great Bearded One has clearly converted to Islam over the past 90 years. :gadfly:
