Match Notes

  • Life is tough but cricket is harder

    Cricket is the most ambiguous of all sports, often messier, more confusing, more contingent and more compelling than life. It may be billed as escapism but, for some, the trauma of a sporting memory is lasting

  • The mature lunatic

  • The last straw - Tendulkar goes, India go

    At 254 for 6 on the last afternoon, India needed only 17 to win with Tendulkar still at the crease
