Is Kaif your best batsmen? He keeps making 50's when the top order fails. He did in the Natwest series in England, and the Natwest final 2 years ago. :confused:

He's got grit. Patel has a chance to redeem himself if he stays there with Kaif. Already there are calls that he be replaced as wicketkeeper because he is dropping catches with monotonous regularity. If he can score a century tomorrow his critics will be silent.:)

Time to keep a close eye on Indian suicide rates. They could flutuate considerably over the next 3 days. :(

That looked a difficult batting pitch. But the Indian team made it look worse than it was, I fear.

They needed some tough, gritty innings from some of their top order players. And none was forthcoming.

I can't help but think that Bangladesh could have put up a better batting display than the Indians in this test. India has at least 2 of the best batsmen in the world so why the problems? :confused:

First change should be dropping Patel. According to the Telegraph he has put down 23 chances and cost India 675 runs as a result. Perhaps Dravid should keep wicket. As he isn't making runs, it can't really negatively affect his batting. ;)

Brendon,

It was a sporting pitch. It had grass on it to aid the fast guys and the bounce was even which made batting, provided you applied yourself like Martyn or Clarke, a test of character.

The Ozzies scored runs didn't they. Lets face it. Oz is Number 1 on any pitch anywhere in the world.

zxb,

There are some guys who want Patel to open the batting in Mumbai. Go figure.

They are not going to drop him in a hurry. He must have very influential godfathers.:mad:

Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne was ruled out of the final Test against India starting Wednesday after he suffered an injury during a training session.

Warney out. Ponters in. Mcgrath in. And Tendulkar rumoured to be opening Indias bowling. :confused:

You never know. Your chaps might crash 300 odd now and blow the ozzies away for 111. :)

I wouldn't underestimate your side Ag. After all, if it hadn't rained in the second test, the chances are that you would have drawn the series, and that is good going. :)

zxb,
The trouble is that our boys are a group of mercurial individual super heroes; the Ozzies are a team and we were hopelessly outplayed.

It's true. Team ethic. That is one thing that needs to be promptly worked on.
