Weather Report : A very cloudy day, showers are expected any moment, but nothingvery serious, if at all the game is affected, maybe for an hour or 2. It's been raining without any pattern for the last week, so nothing is for sure. Fingers crossed.

At this rate, every chance of sehwag getting another triple, maybe more. I am going to watch the post tea session.

I take back my words. Shewag scored 59 runs in his last 25 deliveries. Strike rate of 100+ upon scoring 200 runs. Poor Dravid is not joining the party.

Will Shewag have Lara in mind?

This one is heading for a dull draw. The only silver lining can be a personal milestone for Sehwag if he goes on to break the world record for highest individual score, maybe. You never know!

India can still win. Unfortunately we did not play 5 bowlers. A Piyush Chawla or at least a Pathan would have come in handy in the final two days. What is the point in packing the side with batsmen under these conditions? Our "great" batsmen will teke this golden opportunity to boost their batting averages and chase personal records. Our dumb fans will lap it all up and fill up our stadiums, as usual. Nevertheless, I must say Sehwag showed what can be done to the bowling under these conditions. Hats off to him.

The curator of this pitch must be hanged upside down for preparing such a belter.

I am sure to compensate for this track, the next one will be a turner from day one!

No wonder it is only in subcontinent that common man is veering away from 'Test' cricket. And we blame Twenty20 for it!
