Anyone no why the draw is so short at this stage, long range forecast looks good to me, plenty of pace and bounce and turn for the spinners. Let's start with a draw lay at 2.32. Any thoughts?

Depends how seriously you take Cricket. Must admit that nobody has died though, or is Broad expiring? Haven't seen much of him since his injury.

Feel sorry for Gambhir.

He should not have been selected to tour. Plenty of better openers in India and younger. He had no batting and it wasn't his fault. I said at the start it was not a good idea.

The Ashwin thing is just plain dumb. He is worth his place in this side as a batsman and Jadeja is not a good enough bowler or batsman to warrant a place ahead of Ahswin. I understand they need him for balance and these Engish pitches have been helpful for him.

I think the injury to Sharma was telling, the ommission of Yadav from the tour is proving to be glaring now. Aaron has done well. I think not having Ashwin from the start was the biggest mistake though.

To be fair England have bowled in some great conditions first up at Lords, Southampton and here they got the cloud cover. I thought the game was won with Anderson's bowling in his first spell. He had the ju ju and India were shott. Fraud was just the beneficiary with the wickets in the first innings but Anderson was the star for me.

Fletcher loves his allrounders hence Binny and Jadeja.

Rohit at 6 and Ashwin the tweaker had to be the way to go from the start...

Very odd.

Ishant is good but boy did we hand him some cheap wickets at HQ.

India don't travel. We knew that. The shock is the wickets they've given to Ali. MSD's shot today summed that up...
