Working really hard so far, and productive. Watching/listening via Sky is rubbish as you can't hear the crowd little or no atmosphere

Decent day in the end, I'll take them being 7 down batting first.

Cookies got to change his tactics at the toss though......he's lost everyone as skip so far......5 straight!!

I woke up at 6am and at 100-2, England were 8-1 with betfair. Nearly spat my drink out when I saw that, a real stand out price. Market really favours India, some real good opportunities. If we can stop them for 300-320, then we should be favs imo, Comms are saying it is a good wicket. Now that doesn't mean we won't be allout for 190, but we might get 500+, who knows, Price is wrong either way.

I didn't back us tbf. I laid(backed that it wouldn't be a...) draw at about 7/4 before kick off. Is now 6/4 but should be 5/2 or even 3/1 imo. I did lay India for the series at close to 1/2, so will have a guaranteed win there if we can win this. 8/1 was a fkin ridiculous price but don't like to go in twice on one match. India will have to bat a bit more than 4 sessions (if Sehwag scores a quick 100+ then perhaps a bit less than 4 sessions), which of course they can do, but like I say it is a 5/2 shot not 6/4. The market favours India, until it really sees no point and then it favours the draw.
