0-1
Kohli can't bat for 40 minutes.
Be all out by then.

Indian openers are hopeless.
Played all around a straight one.

Pujara is such a pitiful cunt.

Averages about 70 in India and 20 everywhere else.

14 in the county championship this year. A fucking joke.

Kallis and Sangakkara both better in their era than Sachin.

Kallis was excellent, didn't see That much of sangakara.
Tough to put anyone above Sachin, his battles with Warne were epic.

Sachin and Sangakkara neck and neck in my opinion.

When you look at Kallis though, his stats are just amazing. There was not a single country he failed in over his career, and factor in the bowling as well and he stacks up as one of the all time greats.

Despite the length of his career he has gone oddly under the radar.
Ponting and Lara in the discussion as well.
None of them above Viv for me though.
Best batsman I ever saw.

Kohli seems to have hurt his back from carrying the other ten players so much.

England should have declared overnight with the weather as it is. Played it far too cautiously

Should have declared with an hour to go last night but its being churlish given how easily they have won.

Don't know what the aggregate is for the least runs in a test but this shit from India must be up there.

Wow, mind you, the 30s pitches would have been fucking awful
This Indian team would be lucky to have made 20 on that.

Another 3 tests like this doesn't hold a lot of interest.

Does for me. I find it utterly hilarious with how contemptible Indian cricket is. Watching them lose and seeing Kohli exposed is a delight.
