    extras has come on leaps and bounds this year, not the most flamboyant batsman but he judges the ball well and knows his capabilities. Bopara will be pissed to see another competitor.

    That was quite an innings from Mr Cook. A shame he couldn't get an extra 6 to get the 300 (because you know, 294 is rubbish), but an incredibly well fought innings. He is having a fantastic year or so.
    Its looking like England should be winning this one and getting to the number one spot. A shame that its against an Indian side holding a few injuries and not at its best, but its proving to be a fascinating series so far.

    There was a comment in the TMS live text commentry yesterday that made me chuckle. Someone texted in with a comment suggesting Strauss declare only once that man Extras gets his century as he'd been doing so well.

    Cook is an absolute legend, 294 after scoring literally a million runs against australia in the winter. If he can maintain his form he will be one of the greatest scoring batsmen of all time.

    Rahul Dravid, has just carried his bat, unbeaten, to 140 throughout a firestorm collapse of an Indian Innings, and now because they're following on, he's got to do it all again.

    That team is an utter shambles but the man is a hero.

    Good posting.
    I think England could have got a few more wickets. Tomorrow should be nicer, and I can see us batting by the end of the first session.
