Farce

19-3

What's the point in playing a 5 day Test match on this type of wicket?

Definitely for a T20 game but not for Test cricket IMHO

100% Stokes going soon. He’s itching to start swinging.

I remember us defending 120 against Australia in 2005 on a similar pitch in Mumbai.

Edit: Defended 107 in Nov 2004. They were toast for 93

The good news for Jofra is that it's probably missing leg and off. The bad news? It's hitting middle.

To be fair, on this pitch anything could be possible. But bowling India out for 50....nah.

This does need to be looked at tho, there is no way in hell a test match wicket should be doing this on day 2.

More than 1/2 way through the chase after 4 overs without loss.

India win by 10 wickets on day 2 Seemingly no turn at all in that last session. Just rank batting for 2 days? Won with a 6.

I wonder what Channel 4 are going to do for the next 3 days? They must be gutted.

An opportunity to sell cricket to a whole new generation with a test series live on free to air tv.

Not sure they've done the job
