I wish good luck to Laxman and Dhoni for their respective centuries and hope they reach there.

For those who are watching, was this a difficult chance ?

(from cricinfo commentary)

90.6
Sharma to Parnell, no run, 138.9 kph, dropped by Suresh Raina at wide fourth slip Full in length and well outside off stump, Parnell went for another drive and got a thickish edge but Raina stretched out to his right but clanged it. There were three slips, a gap and then Raina


Just three more to go lads !

Hasn't the number of overs been reduced too?

Just hope they wrap it up quick.

Come on India, go get them.

It's tea time. Just two hours left. The way Ishant is bowling, and as Zaheer has been rendered hors de combat, I can see a possibility of Amla pulling off the unthinkable.

If he does, good for him. Much as I would like to see India win, Amla deserves credit for the way he has applied himself. 473 runs till now in three innings, dismissed only once and his average has gone up by about 7!

What? As I type, Cricinfo commentary says Amla and Morkel are still at the crease.

Am I getting delayed commentary or are you making a prediction?

I am sorry, it seems a catch was dropped, guys watched TV and shouted that India won. Sorry, it was my mistake and enthusiasm which made me post. We have to wait.
