Run-making isn’t easy on this difficult wicket and every run from here on in will put tremendous pressure on the English batsmen. It has been a fab first day and we hopefully expect the same tomorrow. Do join us then, until then have a great evening and an even better night.
India’s day definitely and this partnership has tilted the game in their favor. What can one say about Pujara? He looks to be the perfect replacement to Rahul Dravid, batting with the same qualities that made Dravid such a great player. He didn’t look in any trouble and bar that dropped catch, has proved to be an insurmountable hurdle for the English to cross. Ashwin has given him terrific company and has played a fluent innings. Panesar was the pick of the England bowlers, but needs support. Swann was off-colour today which made life even more difficult.
