A day for fans of test wickets and enemies of Billy Bowden.

Australia

Started like superstars, but like most teams touring to India were undone by short pitch bowling.  Nothing you can do about it.  Bowled like they meant it, and perhaps they did.

India

Got beat up, recovered so well it looked like the game was theirs.  Then they also couldn’t handle the shorter ball and found themselves being saved by the clever batting of Zaheer Khan.

Who’s in front

Fuck knows.  Australia should now win, but it still isn’t a big chase for India. I’m going to say tie. And this one won’t have Dean Jones spewing up, or will it.

Play of the day

Every single moment that Billy Bowden was involved in.  Although the highlight was when he made a mistake and the Nimbus graphic at the bottom of the screen just said, “Umpire: Billy Bowden”, all it needed was a question mark.

Testicular moment of the day

I’m not sure this is entirely justified, but I’m going to give it to Ishant Sharma.  Of his three wickets perhaps on the second wicket of Michael Clarke was any good, but it does take some guts to come back from the ugliness of day one to produce what he did today.  This was almost taken off him when he ran from the ground, only to then limp again near the rope.

Working class moment of the day

Shane Watson got some fair stick for his first innings hundred.  Cause it was slower than the film Paris, Texas.  But in this innings he went all rock n roll with it and was scoring at a run a ball and completely ignoring Katich at the other end.  Ofcourse this aggressive attitude meant he played on to a poor ball. He then had to sit in the changeroom as his teammates fucked up all his good work.

Weird factoid of the day

Yuvraj Singh could be the greatest cricket captain ever.

    Really, I can’t think of any reason why Yuvraj wouldn’t let Mumbai follow-on, other than he wanted to score some runs. Too selfish.

    This was a old school test win. The way australia used to win at home in the 90’s..through poor umpiring

    Oh, come on, the umpires gave lousy decisions to both teams.
