India in Pakistan

This is going to be one heck of a series, as always.

INDIA MATCH SCHEDULE:

Feb 13: 3rd ODI (D/N) at Lahore
Feb 16: 4th ODI (D/N) at Multan

I'm going for a split Test series and a 3-2 India ODI series.

Pretty impressive first 2 days from Pakistan. Four of their batsmen got centuries!

I actually saw that dismissal. It was a run out. Awful way to go.

A runout that Afridi admits was all his fault, not Younis Khan's!

And Afridi gets 27 off one over!

Seriously that's a horrific pitch to bowl on. India are now 132 without loss, with bad light suspending play.

In other words, this match is going to be drawn unless there's a big collapse in the Indian order if they do come back on.

Holy crap, I missed that! That must've been awesome to watch.

I'm looking for video of it.

Or at least a picture of Harbhajan's face when he got smacked.

Sehwag is doing well in the Indian response but they could only play 15 overs today. I like all these stupidly high scoring matches but sadly this one will be a draw.

Opener Virender Sehwag said the Lahore pitch was the best he had played on as India ended day four of the first Test against Pakistan on 403-0.

Sehwag and partner Rahul Dravid are just 10 runs short of equalling the highest first-wicket stand in Tests.

Sehwag, who smashed the second-fastest Test double ton in his 247 not out, said: "I have played a lot of cricket but this is the best track to bat on.

"The ball is coming onto the bat and there is no movement for the bowlers."

Sehwag was only told how close Dravid and himself were to the world record, set in 1955-56 by India's Vinoo Mankad and Pankaj Roy, when they returned to the dressing room.

He said the weather-affected Test would definitely end in a draw because, including Pakistan's 679-7, a total of 1,082 runs have now been scored for the loss of just seven wickets.

"Tuesday will be another practice day for the batsmen because it will be a drawn match," Sehwag added.

He was unhappy the pitch would not produce a result.

"It is the prerogative of the home side to prepare the pitch," Sehwag said.

"We are ready to play on any wicket but such wickets are not good for cricket."
I quite agree with Virender, here. The big runs have been entertaining but it's getting slightly preposterous. Hopefully there'll be a better pitch prepared at Faisalabad.

india has won 7 test matches

pakistan has won 9 test matches

there have been 33 (!) draws between the two countries

Some entertaining hitting by Pakistan. Afridi's very fun to watch, especially, and Younis, Yousuf, Inzy and Shoaib had decent knocks.

Also Harbhajan would have looked a right tit if he'd injured himself celebrating that Shoaib wicket.

it appears that we're headed for the 35th draw between the two nations on the basis of where the current match is heading
