I agree with Andre - it's clear there is no run there and the intention is to delay Pollard's ability to turn around and take a shy at the non-striker's stumps.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

India bowled well and England failed to adapt, simple as.

Decent batting pitch that was in no way a 160 wicket, I thought England were 25 short at the time but now it looks like they were more like 40-50 short.

ODIs are where it's at anyway.

It's interesting that Stokes is fulfilling the 3 role today, presumably a way to allow him to play the anchor role which enables him to face lots of deliveries and get back into form.

Ali and Wood getting Kohli is pretty much my ideal wicket.

Probably too little, too late. I can see England having to chase 370.

India have a lot of wickets in the bank but I don't see this personally, it's too much of an ask for any team from this position.

320 max.

Thankfully the opening partnership bought us a good amount of time, RRR is less than a run a ball.

Our tail doesn't look like it's got a 50 partnership in it to me.

Went into a meeting and we're doing well, on target, no wickets, and come out to us all being out :lol:

Not sure I'm really going out on a limb here by saying that with that bowling attack then England are going to lose today.
