A strange pitch made for a strange day's cricket which ended with the West Indies on top. Rahul Dravid, fresh from a cussed 81, found the pitch difficult enough and the bowling good enough to term the innings "one of the most challenging" that he has played; India's eventual score of 200, he said, was a fighting one. His West Indian counterpart, Brian Lara, however, said only a "Herculean effort" from his bowlers on such a pitch has set the game up. Intrigued? Listen on.
