  • Footwork my foot

    In the light of Sehwag's latest blitzkrieg, it is worth asking: what value does technical correctness in general, and footwork in particular, hold these days?

  • Sehwag's theory of relativity

    Where others see risk, he sees opportunity. And he has the numbers to prove it

  • South Africa fined for slow over-rate

    Roshan Mahanama, the match referee, found the side was two overs short of its target after time allowances were taken in to consideration

  • Chennai offers perfect warm-up for visitors

    South Africa didn't get a practice game prior to this series but they would have been pleasantly surprised with the generosity granted to them at the MA Chidambaram Stadium

  • Stale pitch, monotonous cricket

    Both captains might as well have shook hands at that point and planted a RIP sign in the middle of the pitch
