Despite Chris’ Burnt Bail comments that it’s a “nothing sort of score”, I think 246 for 7 is way below the mark. I suppose, given England’s farcical preparations, it’s about as good as they could expect. India, however, must be sitting pretty happy – especially given the ironing board-flat pitch. My Indian colleages at Cricinfo must be laughing their backsides off by now. Anyway, it’s day two – so by the time I wake from my pit, I expect to see a flurry of comments to keep me up-to-date! Chat away like the cricket-starved wallies you are.
