Nah, Flinty 'll be gone for around 45. The tail will collapse and we'll probably be gone for 200 odd. 250 if we're lucky. Then we'll follow on still 500 runs behind. :(:D:cool:

"Adam Gilchrist has questioned the entire process of passing judgment on a bowler's action based on tests done in laboratory conditions. Commenting on Muttiah Muralitharan's visit to the University of Western Australia to check the legality of his doosra, Gilchrist told Australia's Channel Seven: "I have got to question why they bother doing a test like that, whether it is Murali or anyone else in world cricket. Because there is nothing similar between that in a laboratory and what you are facing in the Test matches."

Gilchrist also disagreed with the decision only to focus attention on Murali's doosra. "What I find interesting is they say you don't need to look at his general offbreak any more because we have cleared that. A bowler can change what they want, every single delivery in a Test match, whatever they want to do with their wrist or the arm. I don't see that you can say they are cleared, we don't need to look for it any more."

Gilchrist had earlier been reprimanded by the Australian board for making comments on Muralitharan's action, but this time the board has decided not to take any action against him"

Never. Lara has a much better eye for huge scores than Matt does.

Tendulkar may end up with a 100 hundreds, but Dravid has made the maximum difference.

After they dropped 6 catches in 9 overs, I switched off the TV.
If India wins this test, it would be a miracle.

When one 19-year-old opens the batting and another opens the bowling, you know that the country's interests are in the best possible hands.:D

And BTW, Allah was on our side.;)

Irfan Pathan is the son of a muezzin, the bloke who wails over the loudspeaker of a mosque, telling the faithful, that Allah was waiting for his best-of-fives [you have to pray five times a day or Allah gets fierce, or so I am told;)] series.

My hat is off to John Wright, the Kiwi, who as coach, made a great necklace out of different precious stones.

Cricket has made Hindus and Muslims in India friends again. Pakistani kids clamoured for autographs from Indian cricketers and Indian new ball bowlers had former Pakistani new ball bowlers as advisers.

God bless cricket.:D

I don't agree with that. We made 285 in our first innings, and 405 (I think) in our second. Nearly 700 runs in total with 5 wickets left, meaning we would probably have overhauled the WI 751, and if they had declared earlier, we would definately have passed them forcing them to bat again (wasting a couple of overs). Does it make any difference if WI had declared on 700, and they had to bat again, or 750 and probably had to bat again? No. The match would still have been drawn. It would have been different if our openers had failed, as usual, and then Brian would have probably had us all out on that final day for and innings win. If he had done that, he would obviously be regarded as a hero by most people. Perhaps he over-estimated our openers, before that final innings, but an opening stand of 187 vindicates that completely.

The WI bowlers had every opportunity to win that match for there team. They typically failed and to blame the batsman who did there part is just plain BS.
