Horses for courses. Green on pitch & overcast conditions against this fragile line up means he wants to put us to play catch up in an hour or two.

But by taking this gamble he has failed to see the larger picture. A greedy pawn capture over looking long term strategic imbalance :aha:. We have enough compensation here.

 

2nd day->Overcast, rainy....we can force them to bat then if we show discipline today

Pitch brown and dry grass....Ashwin will enter the party later on

Our chasing prowess.....we are the worst 4th innings team in world cricket atm

Batsmen form/confidence....will be better if we bat with no scoreboard pressure

Still can't fathom the logic behind Root's decision, overconfidence? Or does ECB want a competitive test series? They have surrendered their pre-game advantage, LOL it's a bat 1st, win the match scenario.

When captain , never let opening bowlers champing at the bit cloud your judgement.

i dont think ashwin will be able to get any purchase as this pitch is seeming like lords pitch only...totally seem friendly.

You will be surprised to see what scorecard pressure can do. Besides Lord's was a 2 day match and he bowled effectively on day 1 pitch, also this track has dry brown grass. If batsmen deliver, you will see the real might of Indian bowling in all its glory.

that's what i said earlier too hardik is not bowling as per our expectations but he is the second highest scorer for india and the way he is batting i am sure he will hit a 50 soon and could have won us the first test , had he got a little more support in batting...please remember we had to score 31 more runs to win, which was due to bad batting that we lost , our bowlers did a fair job and thats why we were neck to neck in the test match ...kohli got unlucky and stokes got lucky to get him Out..had kohli got another 20 runs we would have won the match as hardik wud have scored 10 more...

 

agreed hardik is scoring a 5 on 10 as a bowler but as a batsman he is not failing miserably as compared to others ?

his bowling will improve in this match ..

he is already a gun fielder...

nair could have been played had he would have scored single digit scores in previous tests.

 

275 on this Pitch will be a Good Score with bumrah shammi ishant and hardik..not considering ashwin as ash wont get wickets on this pitch. lets see if we can score 250
