Why are you angry (1st post)? This is good for our second test, don't you think?
I think you need to edit the 1st post and change the angry signs to smiles. You open the thread you dictate the tone.
Another big "THANK YOU" (instead of bad mouthing) to Shewag to bring the best out of our bowlers. Not very often India scores below 245 in first innings.
For the last 4+ years India posted lower than this total just once. That is in Ahmedabad when they collapsed to 76 allout in 20 overs against Steyn, Morkel and Ntini. Yup our ordinary bowling performed better than so many other great bowling lineups because of Shewag's comment (mind you on a batting pitch). I think BCB needs to send gifts to Shewag.
