Yes completely agree with you and its really good to see that you are telling facts instead of being an unintellectual blind fan following like others, i really appreciate as you can visualise the true behind such useless records...
For example look at the current Test series going on, where you are finding all such dead pitches where indian batsmen making records and records....but why are spoling test cricket in such a manner...world cricket should comment of this seriously because it is really a disaster for cricket...

Re: Such pitches r d reasons , players like tendulkar score runs

Tendulkar/dravid/laxman has scored on all types of pitches including SA/AUS/England/NZL etc against quality bowling attack. Their average is same at home & overseas. But your comments are true for rest of players like dhobi, yuvi, all dhob’s friends etc as they always need flat wicket & weak bowling attack to score runs. That’s why 80% of their run has come only on Indian flat wickets. Tendulkar has scored centuries on perth, melborn, sydny, johansburg, oval & all other overseas pitches. Though same is not true with ur friend with average ability dhobi & his gang.

Gautam gambhir and virendra sehwag have played extremely well today. Both are out now he the senior partners Rahul dravid and Sachin Tendulakar are at the crease what a brilliant partneship it was. The pitch was similar to the one in Ahmedabad where it was a run feast. Run feast or not sehwags strokes are powerpacked and cannot be stopped. itndians now have to score over a score of 550 so as the get atleast a declaration.It was a treat after seeing Mahela and Prasanna decimate the indian attack in Ahmedabad. The catch to dismiss Gautam Gambhir was outstanding and showed superior atheletism of the srilanka spin bowler. He is a marveleous spinner and a great athelete.
Tough test for srilankan batsman. Do they have mental toughness like indian players showed in last test. I don't think they can save this match. Pitch is slow and low and going to be more worst. Batting is not easy on such a track on 4th and 5th day. Srilankan batting line up is weak and they are heavily dependent on Sangakara and Jayawardene. Let see what they do in pressure situation.

They have allready demonstrated their ability at motera.....srilankans are a well experienced batting lineup....good in everything...can play long inningses and exelerate the score well....indian bowling at this moment looks hardly troubling ...harbajan completely out of form...bowling negaitvely around leg stump...i dont wat made u comment on srilankan batting like this....this is a beautiful batting paradise....every batsman including tailenders enjoy batting on this surface.......another draw is on card..

I think ICC should bring some variation to test cricket such as limiting the first innings to 120 overs each side so that they can fight it out in second innings. or less test cricket will die over time
