Gowhati pitch ...Early morning start ... Mist around ... You don't need to be a rocket scientist to know that you should bowl first after winning the toss ..

Pathetic batting display is a lesser word

Oh yeah, Sreesanth.
That guy had some attitude problem. I hope he will not cross the line this time.
Still I would prefer a fast bowler to have bad attitude rather than having no attitude.

Was hoping Irfan Pathan would make a come-back too. The guy's got a big heart and must be raring to get back after not having played a Test for over a year.

^^ Yeah true. Irfan can't dance and cry in the field

But seriously with Sreeshanth in the field we expect him to do something funny in the field always

Atleast something to cheer about in a 5 day match.

Kinda agree with you, i would opt for Pathan only in a T20 , for tests its a no-no from me , he would get hammered all over the park. Also his last comeback wasnt anything to write about.

It went a bit OTT.

But was great to witness some really powerful innings.

Its good to be alive. Like billions of others, I was one of them that turned off the TV when Sachin got out.

WC 2011 is calling.
