Well the Indians are in town and at times it was hard to tell whether the game was in Mumbai or Manchester

And they dish out a fair lesson in how to play this funny stuff. At least on today's performance it will not be a one-sided contest unless.......

The bad news. He's back in blighty.
The good news. The topic is back on Page One (well for now at least)

So for today's Q. Why do English batsmen go ga-ga when facing spin ? And in England too

Get put in and a typical reasonable start. Then the spinners arrive and suddenly the innings goes pear-shaped. And on a ground where only a few short weeks ago they got nearly 500.

With Hales being injured Rocky Stokes selection is less controversial. But he IMO appears off the pace both with bat and ball. True he got 50 (the innings would have been even more dire without that) but so laboured.

Commentators putting a brave face on things and saying that games like this one are good rehearsals for the important ones ahead. But you can not afford to lose many 'important' ones else it is shades of the last RWC.

Kuldeep we had no idea, time to study some footage and try and work him out.

Enter Rohit with the wood and despatches the ball to all parts, aided and abetted by Mr Kohli.

Something of a tonkin' in ODI terms.

Hopefully some improvement in the next pyjama game.

Because they never face top quality spin bowling in spin-friendly conditions in England. Red ball cricket has been marginalised to the very start and end of the season, when conditions are most in favour of medium pace dobbers. Many counties don't bother selecting a spinner at all in April, because they quite simply wouldn't bowl. You can't develop your technique against spin when you never bat against it.

The ladies might have lost today but it was a good contest.

NZ never let them get sufficient runs on the board and then found a Devine batter. (Could not resist that one )

Not really the ECB's fault as the summer schedule is set long before the weather forecast, although I have been told we gave into The BCCI and allowed the pyjama games to be played first, could be fact, could be fiction.

^^ That has a certain ring of credibility about it with the BCCI having so much clout these days.

Oz too as why would they send a 2nd Eleven(injuries excepted) to play 5 ODI's when it was not even their 'turn'. But, of course, that would also have been arranged long before the events in S.A.

Good come-back from England.

Innings hit a sticky patch mid-way but a good stand from Willey and Root - welcome runs for him - saw a competitive total posted.

Once the key wickets went, India appeared, certainly with Dhoni, to give up and pretty much pissed off the crowd with an extended net.

Series pretty much wide open now.
