    Tendulkar never played Gough in tests. Caddick was an average bowler. Their 96 attack had Mark Elham, Cork, old Frazer and Chris Lewis.  Regarding this pitch, it was not a regular pitch and that showed in the scores.  No team scored over 300 which tells you about the pitch and conditions. It was a kind of pitch where you were never in and you could get an unplayable delivery at any time.  Ball seamed and swung both ways through out the game, at times ball swung despite sunshine.

    Now We have a good attack so opp did not score 300.Earlier we used even on green tops we conceded 400 runs.England had a good attack in 2002 with Hoggard,Harmy,Flintoff and Jones also played a test.2007 with a young broad and Improving Anderson and Tall Seamer who did well in aus eventually.

    Flintoff  was averaging 40+ at that time.On the other hand Ben Stokes already has a good bowling average.


  2. Marco Polo's  India

     

    Dark skin is highly esteemed among these people. ‘When a child is born they anoint him once a week with oil of sesame, and this makes him grow much darker’ (replaced since by ‘Fair & Lovely’ creams!). No wonder their gods are all black ‘and their devils white as snow.’ A group of their holy men, the Yogis, eat frugally and live longer than most, some as much as 200 years. In one religious order, men even go stark naked and ‘lead a harsh and austere life’—these men believe that all living beings have a soul and take pains to avoid hurting even the tiniest creatures. They take their food over large dried leaves. When asked why they do not cover their private parts, they say, ‘It is because you employ this member in sin and lechery that you cover it and are ashamed of it. But we are no more ashamed of it than of our fingers.’ Among them, only those who conquer sexual desire become monks. ‘So strict are these idolaters and so stubborn in their misbelief,’ opines Marco.

    how it is racism? It is not like Mukund or darker complexion people in India are of difference race. They are not Africans to call this situation racist. Humans naturally prefer fair color and nothing can change that and it is not just in India. It is how our brain reacts to things and isn't something in our control. 

    Humans  naturally prefer fair colour?

     

    The children that are born here are black enough, but the blacker they be the more they are thought of; wherefore from the day of their birth their parents do rub them every week with oil of sesamé, so that they become as black as devils. Moreover, they make their gods black and their devils white, and the images of their saints they do paint black all over.5
