Not sure this test can be described as "proper cricket" in any way shape or form.

Wicket = Rubbish.
Umpiring = Disgraceful
Indians tactics = Baffling
Indians behaviour = Appalling
Entertainment value = I've had to force myself to watch most of it.
Result = Fucking Awesome.

And I guess the last point is all that really counts in the end.

That run rate was a real throwback to the 1980s. The entertainment value was significantly higher than anything else you can do in Nagpur - you know you're in a dull town when the number one tourist attraction is a milestone...
