Good one Satish... but can't understand the nature of pitch in 1st test except that it was batsmen-friendly.. Openers (Cook and Dhawan) didn't score any runs.. Main batsmen (Bell and Kohli) could not score any runs.. Tailenders scored fifties (Anderson nearly scored a hundred).. India's main spinner (Jadeja) could not take a single wicket.. England's part-time spinner (Moeen Ali) took almost 4 wickets.. This is indeed a mystery pitch.. we can find many such pitches in India.. but not the one we expect from England.. Two more test matches like this will help me to tune-off from the series and test cricket (played by India) permanently..
I had a doubt in cricket rule that, all the 11 players must bat, but only 4-5 players bowl. My doubt was cleared by Cook, that even Batsmen can also bowl and take TALL wickets! And even Bowlers can score more runs than batsmen! - (Bhuvi, Shami, and Andy)
That the Indian attack took out the top 7 cheaply was commendable. That they failed to get the last 3 out was laughable.
It certainly is a bowler friendly pitch after two 50s of Bhuvi and no double figures score from Kohli.
Amazing expressions, just amazing.
