    I am interested to see Ashwin on this pitch. How will he bowl? Will his job be to contain or to get wickets?
    Nothing like that yes he is playing soo well today but a good ball or a bad shot is enough to end this, we have seen numerous times ab throws it away after bats like a numero uno

    If AB bats for a long their then am not seeing india winning even a session let alone the test match

    I would have love to see steyn and philander in such conditions together as like the first hour of play.Philander would have spit venom on each ball

    Not sure what will be the condition tomorrow,from pitch reports it will be a lot better to bat on day 2

    But based on the amount of grass cover around the cracks I really expect this pitch to quicken. Moisture is still trapped underneath the surface affecting the true pace of the wicket.

    But enough talk about the pitch, Bhuvi bowled well and AB countered effectively (so far).
    The surface never wins matches for anyone, both sets of players have played well. It's been an absorbing session, no doubt about that.

    Thanks for the thorogh response! If the pitch quickens by tomorrow, as you've said, I doubt Indian batting will survive. Pace and swing in the first session will blow them away unless Pujara holds one end and keeps things held.

    AB has concentration issues which is why he hasn't become the greatest test bat of his era even though he is very skillful. 21 hundreds are too low for a player like him.

    Pitch is excellent as it allows for a good contest between bat and ball. Runs are flowing at a good rate but the surface has enough to keep bowlers interested.

    Nothing like the slow, flat dross we saw at the MCG last week or UAE/Caribbean tracks where ball bounces knee high with scoring rate at 2 RPO.

    Man. Kohli has said absolutely nothing. Why do they want cricket to turn into a sissy sport? I love this passion, aggression and emotion. Cricket is already getting quite boring as it is and you rarely get to see such competition and aggression but they want it all to stop.

    What an absolute bunch of sissies are these good for nothing ICC people. Disgusting. This is why we have no superstars anymore. This passion, aggression and emotion is what turns good players into stars and legends.

    Isn't the passion thrilling? Who wants to see a boring captain showing absolutely zero emotion? This is what makes Test match cricket interesting..

    The lack of such players in Kohli, Stokes and Co. will make cricket very monotonous and boring.

    Chill bro it was a dump decision to bat on a green top but the fact is both teams playing with 6 batsmen and some bits and pieces all rounders

    Barking up the wrong tree here mate the passion isn't the issue he just hates kohli, if kohli tomorrow saved a puppy from coming under a car he will blame kohli for letting dog's spread rabies or something.

    I genuinely expected more from that series, especially after the competition the WI had shown in England and the way the dealt with a strong Zimbabwe side.

    There's a fine line between being aggressive and obnoxious and Kohli, without a doubt falls on the obnoxious side by quite some distance. You want to see aggression and passion? See guys like Ranatunga, Border, Waugh, Ganguly. That's aggression and it adds flavor to the game. Kohli's just a much more immature version of Ricky Ponting. Still remember how he was dancing in he dressing room when he was injured in the India-Aus series everytime an Aus wicket fell. The guy just wants the cameras on him so bad all the time.

    The Ashes was surprisingly very boring this year. The 2013/14 one was thoroughly dominated by Australia but Johnno and their aggression made it fun to watch. This year was just plain boring for neutral fans.

    I don't think he needs to "dance around" to have the camera on him. He could be sitting patiently, emotionless, doing absolutely nothing and the cameras would still be on him, and he knows that too. He isn't exactly attention starved, being the most famous cricketer in the world. So, I think its passion. And with the severe lack of it these days, I think this makes cricket interesting, even though it may backfire and end up in embarrassment sometimes.

    Too much home advantage with the Ashes nowadays and there's hardly any genuinely close games when the series is live. You'd have to go back to the Trent Bridge Test in the 2013 series.

    They did. But South Africa isn't an easy place to tour. Top teams have been humiliated here time and again.

    With the return of Jarvis and Taylor, they were a much stronger side.
