Another classic letdown by our batsmen...
But its alright, just one bad session...hopefully our bowlers could bring us back right into this game (once again?)
Lets wait and watch

No need to wait. The series is fixed ..Pakistan will win 2-1.
It is so nice to know the result in advance.
No wonder India elected to bat.

Electing to bat was not that bad decision. It just displayed the positive frame of mind we are in.
Pakistan should have one bad session like the one we had (first session).

India batting has always failed on green tops.Pakistan is going strong and will win. All because India batted first. Wrong decision by great captain Dravid.

I think the main problem India faced in this match (as opposed to the other matches recently played), is the failure of the opening partnership.
Akash Chopra's dismissal was crucial. Even a fifty plus partnership for the first wicket would have changed the events that followed.

Pakistan dreamt about bowling to India first on a green top and they did all thanks to Dravid for fufulling their dream.

Remember the match at Headingly, Leeds?
When Sourav won the toss and elected to bat first on a green pitch, people thought he is mad. But the final result proved that it was a brave decision.
Probably Dravid hoped for a repeat performance this time.

It failed because of the pitch. Who decided to bat first, India and not Pakistan.

Rahul scores usually well on green top and Sachin does not. Was the reason to bat first? :roll:

we should forget the Headingly test. It happened only once.

Even before the first ball was bowled I knew batting first was a wrong decision. I am really sad.

It was a big risk electing to bat first, true, but I still don't think it was a stupid decision. If India would have scored 280/3 at end of first day's play, people will be praising Dravid for his brave decision.
It was just a kind of day where things don't go as per your plan

Lets hope that we can bat in the second innings the way Oz bats when they fails in first innings. (recent e.g. of S.Lanka)

Good. One more proof that match is fixed.
Indians will get plenty of time for shopping with their wives.
Happy Shopping.

Hey..
Really sad that the Indians lost the test at Lahore.

Now, they have put the tag of being 'chokers' behind them with the ODI victory. But don't you guys think they are now slowly on the way of being labelled as 'Test Chokers'??

IOW, the Indians have had won tests aginst the W.I, Zim, Eng lately and also here in Australia against the Aussies, but unfortunately, haven't capitalized on the early leads.
Hope they pull up and pull up really quick for the final test.

Oh! Dear. Patel was looking good. Was watching the match on the Internet. Here, there is no live telecast of the match and thus had to sign-up to watch live streaming video on willow.tv.
I am really amazed at the quality of the video. Absolutely brilliant.
And, I would reckon Lara's record to stay the way it is for a long time, atleast another hundred years or so.
And this guy Sachin, IMO, cannot go on for that long an innings.
In any case, let Lara rule....
