India v England, 2nd Test, Mohali, 5th day

'We wanted them to score their centuries' - Dhoni

Dec 23, 2008: Mahendra Singh Dhoni doesn't seek refuge behind words. On Tuesday, he offered up no excuses for the late declaration, which left India with a maximum of only 43 overs to try and bowl England out

Test cricket deserves better

Dec 23, 2008: A match that could, and should, have been fought to a rousing finish was allowed to meander to a miserable stalemate

Andrew Miller

India v England, 2nd Test, Mohali, 5th day

Centuries don't matter, victories do

Dec 23, 2008: Given that there were still 68 overs to be bowled when the teams finally took to the field, you could scarcely blame India for batting on. After a week when seemingly insurmountable targets have been achieved with ludicrous ease, there was no point taking

India take series after dull draw

Dec 23, 2008: India clinched the two-Test series against England 1-0 after the second Test ended in a draw here on Tuesday

Fortune favours the cautious

Dec 22, 2008: A two-Test rubber was always going to sell this series short, but only now do we get an idea of quite how short

India v England, 2nd Test, Mohali, 4th day

Yuvraj spurred by banter

Dec 22, 2008: The confidence with which Yuvraj Singh batted on the fourth evening went a long way towards eliminating the slim possibility of an Indian defeat

Cautious India maintain advantage

Dec 22, 2008: Any thoughts that India had of quickly piling onto to a 151-run lead, taken through Harbhajan Singh's quick strikes on another foggy morning, evaporated in the afternoon sunshine as England turned in a vigorous spell

The Bulletin by Jamie Alter

India v England, 2nd Test, Mohali, 3rd day

India treated to the real KP

Dec 21, 2008: Pietersen made a statement to be remembered, battering India's bowlers at a tempo that none of their own players had been able, or willing, to replicate in their own first innings

Andrew Miller

India v England, 2nd Test, Mohali, 3rd day

Defensive Dhoni stalls Pietersen's charge

Dec 21, 2008: Had England gone to stumps with just the four wickets down, Mahendra Singh Dhoni would most likely have been excoriated for his negativity

Late wickets spoil England fightback

Dec 21, 2008: Kevin Pietersen's 144, reeking of swaggering brilliance, had combined with Andrew Flintoff's determination to bail England out of trouble on an absorbing day in Mohali but their dismissals in fading light swung the advantage right back India's way

The Bulletin by Jamie Alter

India v England, 2nd Test, Mohali, 2nd day

Wanted: A miracle

Dec 20, 2008: Andrew Flintoff was as hostile as ever, but England may already need a miracle to win this Test

'Relieved' Dravid happy to be contributing again

Dec 20, 2008: After a year when the words "wall", "falling" and "crumbling" were never far from the headlines, Rahul Dravid could have been forgiven for thinking he had become Humpty Dumpty

England fight back but India on top

Dec 20, 2008: India's top and lower order piled on the frustration for England on day two in Mohali, building on the foundation laid yesterday by Gautam Gambhir and Rahul Dravid

The Bulletin by Jamie Alter

India v England, 2nd Test, Mohali, 1st day

In August company

Dec 19, 2008: The only difference was the absence of a voluble crowd, especially on the Western Terrace. Otherwise, the first day of the second Test between India and England in Mohali, could have been a facsimile of the opening day at Headingley in August 2002.
