    Harbhajan just looks lost, that expression after he got hit sums it up. He's giving up too easily and Ashwin's 5-for isn't helping him.

    I gotta hand it over to Australians though.

    They may be losing wickets but RR is respectable and above 3 per over.

    If it was Pakistan we would be 80/5 after 60 overs.

    .... And Cook and co made Ashwin their personal whipping boy.

    Come on. How do you bat so badly as to allow him five straight wickets?

    I say we make all the pitches in England dry spinners for the Ashes, and let Swanny and Monty have a go at this rate.

    That is the key , Aussies know they will get out sooner or later , need to make most and get runs on the board. Runs on the board can be vital.

    Yeah, the fast bowlers are pretty even imo so preparing turners would definitely be the way to go.

    That's what you did at The Oval in 2009, and it's a much better bet than a green seamer with Anderson and Broad both averaging on the wrong side of the 30s in spite of bowling in those conditions with a new red Duke 75% of the time.

    Spinners ftw.

    Keep in mind you lot got flogged in the first Test. Takes a bit to acclimatise to batting here. Though Pup seems to have acclimatised pretty quickly.

    Don't be quick to hate on Harby. I have a feeling he's gonna run through the Aussie line-up in the 2nd dig. Ashwin stop stealing Harby's wickets will ya. Just concentrate on your batting.

    Broad would be a nightmare. You never know which one will turn up.

    Anderson will be the best bowler on show, he has been for the past few years from the England side, and only the Saffa bowlers have been better..

    Dunno how Finn will do. But overall, a poor Broad makes the entire bowling side equivalent to the Aussies who have some fine quicks.

    Yeah, we were horrid the first test. But not to Ashwin.

    I have no problems losing to India in the first test due to spin.

    It's Ashwin I absolutely loathe, who shouldn't be a first pick spinner.

    So what "injury" will Darty pick up that will mean he sadly can't play the second test?

    200 up for Aus. If they can add another 150 on top of that Aus will be in the game with a chance to stretch India.

    He seems to struggle when he's not opening though. I think he averages in the mid 20s when not opening and in the 40s when opening. Quite a disrepency that.

    Ideally India would be happy to restrict Aussies within 300.

    There ya go Aussies, thank the absence of DRS.

    No whining when you get a wrong one now, okay? It's just to get even.

    I like the fact that SL have always produced awesome WK batsmen.

    We're a one-man army. Should Ashwin fall away or get injured for some reason, I can't fathom what's going to happen.
