i give full credit for his ton to ishant sharma.. look at teh short pitch bowling he did to him. atleast 3 feet outside the off stump. The first 5 deliveries kevin peiterson faced were atleast 3 feet outside off stump. No fuller length. He is still living in west indies where you go for the batsmen's head all the time. Idiot bowling along with harbhajan. That was not good batting but stupid bowling and fleld placing.

rahul dravid dropped three catches. Gavaskar was commenting all the time to stand forward cause the ball is not reaching the slips. And still they kept on standing way back. dravid dropped KP catch which could have got by standing a foot ahead. Stupid field placing by the captain.6myey
I just cant understand the automatic selection of Harbhajan irrespective of his form or performance for the last four years, does he have some powerful backing ? I wish he goes back to making ball bearings
HE HAS BEEN A ORDINARY BOWLER GO...TTA GIRI KAR KAR KE HE HAS BEEN IN THE TEAM. I DID NOT SEE A SINGLE BOWL TURN A BIT. I KNOW LORDS WICKET DOES NOT TURN MUCH BUT WHAT HAPPENED IN WESTINDIES? MISHRA SHOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN CHANCE SEE AUSTRALIAN THEY NEVER WENT AFTER BIG NAME BUT CURRENT PERFORMANCE ONLY, THAT IS WHY A CLASS BATSMAN LIKE DAMN MARTIN WAS SHOWN DOOR JUST AFTER 2-3 FAILURE. ZAHEER ALSO WAS NOT FULLY FIT EVERY ONE KNEW RIGHT FROM WARMING UP MATCH AGAINST SOMERSET. SHREESHANTH DID AT FANTASTIC JOB IN LAST TOUR SO IF ZAHEER WAS NOT FULLY FIT HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN RESTED SO THAT HE COULD BE READY BY SECOND OR THIRD TEST. DHONI IS TAKING EVERYTHING FOR GRANTED. HE FORGOT THAT IT IS NOT 50-50 OR 20-20 BUT TEST CRICKET YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE YOUR BEST TEAM. HOW COULD YOU LEAVE A BATSMAN LIKE ROHIT SHARMA A SOLID MIDDLE ORDER BATSMAN 100 TIME BETTER THEN RAINA AND YUVRAJ. IT IS A MOCKERY OF TEST CRICKET.

HE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT SORT OF FIELD PLACING REQUIRED IN FIRST FEW OVERS. NO THIRD SLIP NO FORWARD-SHORTLEG. ALL THE SLIP PLAYERS STANDING WAY BACK DESPITE KNOWING PITCH IS SLOW.
Indians are facing lot of trouble especially in test cricket in the bowling department. Harbhajan can only bowl on the subcontinent surface. He is just an ordinary bowler on this English track. Now the bitter truth is what will he do in 2015 world cup in australia.
He might have claimed 404 wickets but it is too hard form him to reach 600 mark. He has bowl till he turns 40 to reach 600 mark.
IPL fan Kathrina must be dancing with joy on her best cricket star cum fan hitting 200 so also Vijay & sid malya the owner of Royal Challeger Bangalore IPL now let us see how Gautam & Sachin & Rahul & Mahendra the most paid IPL horses do or fail for follow on as usual?
