England is like the turd that just won't flush down the toilet.  They always hang around longer than they should.

Get Stokes out and I'll start to feel pretty good.

Feeling good now? Ashwin is the man.

Ok this is the right team now. For sure.

 

washington sundar is not of the same class as these 3. . Yes, i know this Is a more helpful pitch, but sundar is better bat than a bowler imo. 
 

these 3 are clearly better, wicket-taking bowlers. thats why he was a net bowler.

GD it Kohli.  Ashwin will ask for appeal on everything.

Need to just ignore Ashwin for the rest of the series. Guy has the worst sense of reality. Thinks every ball he bowls gets him a wicket.

I fell asleep after Siraj bagged his first Test wicket. Now the question is when do India declare (assuming they don't get all out)? I'm guessing India bats through all of Day 3 if possible giving them ample time to go through England's batting lineup. England will obviously be playing for the draw.

I have a fairly strong dislike of the bcci. Its a poorly run org due to so many politicians involved due to the money gravy train. And the supreme court reforms went nowhere. Looks like they gave up fixing bcci. 
 

anyway, why do i bring this up?

 

the bcci is like a fine-oiled japanese car factory compared to the bcb that is the shoddy oil change place around the corner. 

the bcb chief sounds like a misbehaving 4-year child whose parents have already given up on disciplining him: https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/ban-vs-wi-2nd-test-nazmul-hassan-slams-mominul-haque-and-russell-domingo-after-west-indies-series-defeat-1251780

 

what an embarrassment. Dont see bangladesh making any progress this decade if this guy is in charge. Even if they remove him today (which they won’t; cuz he is probably a powerful guy), he has probably inflicted enough damage to the bcb for the next many years.

West Indies sweep Bangladesh, winning the second test by 17 runs.

Rahkeem "Tons of Fun" Cornwall grabbed five wickets and was named Man of the Match.  He also had a great catch on the last ball to win the game.

Cornwall should be everyone's favorite cricketer. Seeing a man that big on a cricket pitch makes me smile. He's actually been losing weight over the last 1-2 years.

He got 13 wickets in Australia. 

I must have still been sleeping when I posted this. I either meant to say first Test wicket in India or first wicket of the Test match.

Either way, there should be more of that coming in England's 2nd innings.

There will be no declaration. Too much time remaining. I expect India to be all out by the second session. Game might be over today itself. 

I am second guessing myself here.

Now I think India bats all day or almost all day after seeing how Woakes was able to hang and the promising start by India. The pitch is bad, but may not be entirely demonic at this point?
 

If India pull it off (bat all day), India will also show they would’ve won irrespective of the toss.

I don't understand the decision to move Pant ahead of Rahane. Is it because Rahane has difficulty playing spin? Not like Pant had any impact with the bat in his cameo appearance. I think if India can get the lead close to 300, it should be a defensible total, however, it will require a heavy dose of Ashwin to pull off.

Should always stick with first instinct. No second guessing first instincts. Hard to see any indian bat in double figures the way it is going. 
 

Foakes is dammmmn good keeper. How can they play Butler over this guy!!!!
