  • Few pluses for Indians in facile win

    On a day when the most exciting moment was a decision by MS Dhoni not to have a keeper for a delivery, the Indians completed a facile five-wicket win against Derbyshire

  • Pujara eases into Test mode

    It might have been a low-intensity nearly-an-exhibition match against the 2nd XI of the second-worst team in county cricket this year but someone forgot to tell Cheteshwar Pujara

  • Mild pace concerns for India on low-key day

    Mohammed Shami didn't bowl, Ishant Sharma bowled no-balls, and three batsmen who have not been finding a place in the Derbyshire first XI scored fifties on the first day

  • Indians prepare for another gentle workout

    Rahul Dravid's presence in Derby on the eve of the warm-up game against Derbyshire is unlikely to make the game any more intense

  • Fresh purpose invigorates Poynton

    Tom Poynton has taken up a role promoting Derbyshire's match against the touring Indians as he continues to recover from the tragic car accident that killed his father
