Finest beard in the game

Two days into the match and I'm terribly bored by it. Graeme Smith, you clout, you should have put India in to bat, if only for our entertainment. Instead, we had to watch Zaheer Khan give us false hope by picking up the two early wickets of Graeme "shovel-to-the-legside" Smith and Ashwell "walking-wicket" Prince.

But the way this match is positioned is similar to the first test match at Chennai when South Africa toured India two years ago. A big Hashim Amla hundred, terrible bowling by Harbhajan, and a big first-innings score.

Those of you who know what happened after that, good on you, treat yourself to a cookie.

Those who don't, I'll tell you, but hell awaits if you touch that cookie jar.

India took a lead of close to a hundred runs, and Sehwag scored the quickest triple century ever. Who was in the bowling attack? Steyn, Morne Morkel, Makhaya Ntini and Paul Harris.

True, India had Dravid and Laxman, but there was no Gambhir then. Murali Vijay played well against Brett Lee and Mitchell Johnson on debut, pace doesn't bother him. And Badrinath is the best domestic batsman to make his debut in the middle order since Dravid and Ganguly 14 years ago, he should fit into the role.

And it's a flat pitch.

This match is surely heading for a draw, as despite the turn on offer, Harbhajan and Mishra don't look up to the task. If this series is to have a result, the next match should either be on a green top and let South Africa win, or a dustbowl coupled with Pragyan Ojha getting a game.

Day 3 begins today, and that's where the match should be taking off.


Hi Rishi hope you're liking day 3 so far, one thing I can tell you for sure, Sehwag won't be making any triple centuries in this match LULZ

You guys need to start digging yourselves in now...

Both openers out twice on the same day... ouch.

Luckily the only batsmen left to bat are all the dig-in types... two days is a lot though!

This is all wrong. Dhoni should have got the hundred. Bloody Sachin.

Hahaha, why Dhoni! He was too intent on defending and keeping his wicket to score runs... Harbhajan looks more likely to score one :P

Exactly! See what I mean? All wrong :D
Oh! Parnie just snipered him. All back to normal B)

Oh man!
I think I jinxed him :P

Dhoni's first loss as captain :(
