Default 500 is hard!

Even on a flat track, against a mediocre bowling attack, with a 224-0 start, we barely made 500, that too lucky with Rubel's cameo getting full credits.

Puts into perspective the 638 we scored in SL, 556 vs WI, and 501 vs NZ.

It ain't easy gettin 500 regardless of the pitch or opposition.

No one said it's easy. But that doesn't mean it's not doable. Anything beyond 600 was on the cards if the set batsmen didn't throw it away. We didn't get to a better score because it's hard but because of our complacency.

All they had to do is be patient. 1st hour each day, and then curtailing your natural instinct. Failed totally in the second day. You can't get to 500 just like that. Thus we needed the prayers of not going out under 433.
