            Anderson caught off the second-last ball of the Match. Sri Lanka win the Match by 100 runs and the Series 1-0.

                First day at Trent Bridge, India won the toss and are 100-1 after 26 overs. Pitch is as flat as a pancake and England don't have a specialist spinner. India could score a thousand runs here.

                  What's that? a Test match starting on a Wednesday? Quite apart from the break with tradition in this part of the world, The last day's play is Sunday one of the days when a good crowd is almost guaranteed but for which usually no advance tickets are sold because of the possibility of the match being over before then.

                    I think India might bat until lunchtime on Friday, then give themselves 8 sessions to take 20 English wickets.

                      To be fair, England have bowled with a lot more discipline and made inroads after every break to leave India 187-4. Murali Vijay still there on 99.

                        Another brilliant game of cricket, hope OD is enjoying it.

                          England go 6 - 50 on either side of lunch and lose the test to India. Shambolic is an under statement! When have a test side fallen from No. 1 to No. 5 (England's current ranking) in such miserable fashion. They look clueless when bowling and naive and erratic when batting. Cook has shown a complete ineptitude as captain in the last 12 months.
                          He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.

                            England are playing some terrible cricket.

                              This is going to be a serious hammering.

                                Yes, England are 18 runs ahead of the Indian 1st innings total with nine wickets left.

                                What a turn around in less than a month since Red Herring's Post above.
