instead of creating new threads ask all of your questions in the first thread that you created.

Mods, please merge this one with Anon's first thread.

By miracle if BD bats 2.5 days and/or rain aids to that then yes it will be a draw. Not because of India couldn't bat or something. It is because India could not get us out twice.

Follow on rules: The the team batting second scores anything short of less than 200 (in this case 410) runs made by the other team, follow on happens. IN that case, the opposition captain (Dravid) reserves the right to either call the other team (BD) to bat again or come out to bat himself (Indian batsmen bat).

However, there is an exception to this rule. In case the first day of the match is completely washed out in rain, the follow on margin comes down to 150 from 200.

You can find cricket rules here:

To have a result in test cricket the teams scoring less points must be dismissed twice, losing 20 wickets in the total of the game.
Much of the beauty of this game comes from the complexity of the rules... it takes time to understand most of it but it's very interesting!;)

It's even more interesting to see that the Italian knows much more about cricket than many other members of the forum. Nice :)
