Ok stupid question of the day. What time is 04:00 GMT?
Far too early, get up around 6.30ish and watch the last two sessions.

You have got to be kidding man!I have been starved of decent competitive test cricket. I cannot wait. The only question is vin rouge or rum and coke?The big question remains the same is 04:00 GMT the same as 04:00 Blighty?
Mr Death, I take it you missed N.Z v Windies I wish I did as I'm down 2.2 over the 2 matches. I fully expect to make up on this one though.
The big question is do I stay up all night for the toss/start or do I wake up for the 2nd session?
Aus at 1.74 looks short for me pre toss. I would want around 14s for the draw.

Saha is Ashley a very good bat and technically correct. He can also whack it around. A bit harsh on him as he is the better keeper and can be a good batsman but I just love watching Pant.The run out was almost catastrophic fir India. They really must bat through to at least lunch tomorrow. Still anyone’s game. Can’t see the draw
I'm not sure about the keeping standard but I think Pant is a lot closer to the Gilchrist mould; which I think is as good as it gets for a keeper.
Small sample size but Saha has a top test score of 35 in Aus/RSA. Smaller sample size but Pant already has 2 centuries and averages 36 in Aus, NZ and eng.
Saha's FC average is impressive but I don't think you can transpose that into tests. Badrinath averaged over 60 in FC for much of his career and barely got a game.
