I knew when India starts to bat same will happen. Time to blame the curator again?!
Fact is this aint a test pitch at all, which is troubling batters from day one! Nagpur venue should be banned and BCCI should be punished for using excessive advantage to create such pitches. And what a poor umpiring by Dhamasena! this is also a concern here.

I'm aware of that which is why I deliberately mentioned International Cricket not Domestic Cricket. There's a big difference and Domestic doesn't really prove anything. India don't have fasts bowler like England has but lets see if he can score a 100 against them tomorrow otherwise my point stands.
i know gambhir hasn't done that badly this series but he's forgotten how to score 100s thus they should bring in rahane. need to get someone in for tendulkar to. jadeja was picked for form i guess, tiwary is injured otherwise i would have expected him but still, rohit could have been picked or rahane could have batted down the order.
All Time Test XI: 1 Hobbs 2 B.Richards 3 Bradman 4 Pollock 5 V.Richards 6 Sobers 7 Gilchrist 8 Miller 9 Procter 10 Botham 11 Warne
Great partnership by Kohli-Dhoni given India a chance to be back in this test, its all open for any result now after day three. Although its praise-worthy partnership but if this test ends in a draw, which England will prefer, these two should be blame as their run rate was very low.

Cook 1 of 41 lol, and Indian setting fielders around the boundaries, do none of them want to win? Understandable for the English, but the Indians need a win to save their face lol.
They don't need to take risks...India needs to take risks, if they want to win...while you see Indian field positions, India is checking runs than attacking them to take wickets... It's a poor pitch....by god it's so slow and low...
