If we are talking of bench strength and giving guys a chance then why not Manish Pandey !!!!!!

Scored a magical century in IPL against a quality attack .. proved again with a 50 ( or a 40 .. dont remember ) .. Almost a double ton ( 194 ) in his Ranji debut ... This guy has talent and he can handle presure too ( remember symmo bullying him without luck ???? ) .. why not fast track him.

Sachin Tendulkar scores a half century and crosses 30000 International Runs. Hats off to the Legend

looks like we are heading for a draw. unless we are victim of famous collapses once again. SL haven't yet won a test here. So hopefully this time too they don't win one.

Phew we have kinda managed to save the match. Fingers crossed. I dont think the SL bowlers have the fire power , heck even Murali looks outta form.
I hope Mishra and Ishant get dropped next match. But are we still looking at 7 batsmen / 4 bowlers combo? Since Bhajji( and others too) are not in form i would prefer to take a 6batsmen / 5 bowler combo.

Match is drawn, it was a nice batting practice for both the teams.

Wondering if I India would have had their second innings if they succeeded in retaining those early wickets on the first day.

I would say it was bad captaincy from SL, they allowed Jayawardena to pile up the runs, he should not feel product at all for scoring 275 on a placid track, I would have poured up a ton of concrete on that pitch to make the ball turn.

A match for setting batting records, reminded me of those boring days when Gavaskar & Gaekwad used to bat all day & get hundreds.

This must be the first test match played in India (after 1990) that I did not see a single ball live. What stupid scheduling : Monday to Friday !!!

Wondering what would be the pitch for the 2nd test match?
I have a gut feeling that it would be again a batting paradise

Jayawardena would again score a double century

I just love the Aussie & English concept of starting a test match on Thursday (mostly). The best days fall on weekends.
