Final session on day two to begin, how far is the declaration?

wOl: "50+ overs and all the press conferences you can front...if I were R. Ashwin I'd be asking for a pay rise."

edge of reason: "If I was Pup, I would probably continue to bat on until they were all out, let Haddin bat himself of the rut he's in at the moment, plus tire the Indians more. If our bowling attack is good enough, we should be able to get them out twice in under 3 days without having to bat again."
