eng vs pakistan day 4

Morning to all the morning people, this is the first time i have been awake for the start this series so am commemorating with an article. Feel free to express partisan opinions but would seriously like to know; have the pitches changed from prevoius series? I was led by media to expect huge batting totals, which clearly has not happened. Is this due to poor batting, good bowling or competitive pitches? To me it seems this pitch is a cracker, giving great balance between bat and ball throughout.
Yesterdays game looked done and dusted for England, Pakistans late partnership made me worry, in fact any lead 150+ (very possible) could make us crumble to spin

Oh my......I didn't realise the cut was so deep......

Ya gotta laugh, these pommies have been chest beating themselves that hard they suddenly know what it feels like to get a kick in the arise.....get yourselves use to it lads, there is more where that come from.....(out with the knives, here they come)

. i hope pakistan go for a clean sweep and make it easier for sa to take that no.1rank.....

So Viru because India were unable to beat England you now pray for some other team to make up for your failure. How sore a loser can you get.

no hopefor, its not going to help india is it? I just feel SA are the right champions in the world. Yes they are not producing those 3-1 scores or 4-0 scores, but they have not let other teams win against them. If not win then draw, and that is pretty consistant for my liking. anyway hopefor, not that I hate the england team, just england fans who have been boasting about their rise in the world cricket and at the same time making fun of this indian team.

It has been a good 5 - 6 hrs watching the pommies just the same virud at least it gives there knuckles a chance for a rest after all the arm chair experts stop chest beating for a few months....

Viru - I have never boasred about England being number one as for me the rankings are an irrelevance. Until every team have played each other home and away it's impossible to judge their true strength. Whats worse is that each teams cycle are not synchronized , Whilst one team is playing strong opposition away others can be playing weaker opposition at home.

besty, this is why the number one ranked team has to hold that position for 2 years at least before he becomes recognised as the true no.1......

You will find the true no.1 ranked team will soon be intrenched in it's true position...Sth. Africa.

There's only been one team that was truly number one in the world. that was the great Aussie team. Since their decline no one will remain number one for long because there is no great team around at present.

I can't argue with logic like that....that's why a team needs to be there for at least 2 years before it can be recognised as no.1...
