  1. This was Hoggard's 14th test match,the current English pace attack is far more experienced.
  2. Dinesh Karthik in England 2007-43.83(Opener) 2018-7 Indian batsmen yet to bat in good batting conditions in this series.
  3. 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.
  4. It proves colour psychology is bullshit.Colours mean different things in different cultures and across different eras.
  5. 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. http://www.shunya.net/Text/Blog/MarcoPoloIndia.htm
  6. 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 https://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/p/polo/marco/travels/complete.html#book3.16
